Default Clicking from HVAC by glove compartment

HELP- anytime the car is off and I open a door, the hatch, or start the car, I get a clicking sound for 15 seconds from inside the passenger side dashboard behind or above the glove compartment. I tore out the glovebox, and cheapo recycled cloth/cardboard cover off the bottom of that side of the dash. It sounds like it's coming from the right hand side between the blower motor and RF door. I CANNOT get a tool in there to remove anything, including the HVAC 'module' that might be doing the clicking. Is there a recall or a TSB for this horribly annoying problem? How can this module be removed without a robot or a $600 service visit? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Probably just the blend door resetting itself. A lot of cars do this. Please state what vehicle you are referring to, year, engine size, mileage, etc.

Default clicking in car

2012 SXT 55K AutoCVT (2.0 or 2.4?)


Is there a way to get it to 'reset' as it has been doing this for a month now. Thanks.

Clicking is usually a sign of a stripped or slipping actuator in the ductwork.

Is it possible to change the actuator yourself, or is it in an impossible to remove location?

I have not changed one on a Caliber. It sounds like the one for the door that controls whether it gets air from outside or inside(max a/c). Remove the glovebox and you should be able to see it. They are usually a small box with a wiring plug going to them. Our 09 has old fashion cables and a vacuum actuated recir. door. I think in 2010, the switched to the electric controls.
