Odd sound from under dash...

I have recently started hearing an odd sound coming from under the dash. It sounds like an ink jet printer but its very quiet. I can reach down and push up on something under the dash and it will stop making the sound for awhile. Where I push up is on the passengers side at the top edge of the hump in the floor. Anyone know what this could be? I am pretty sure it is something to do with the air controls but everything seems to work just fine.

Re: Odd sound from under dash...

It is your blend door actuator. It is an extensive and expensive fix. Do a search on here and you will find various posts about it.

Re: Odd sound from under dash...

I have seen posts on here of around $800. They have to completely remove the dash.

Re: Odd sound from under dash...

Finally got it to Ford a few days ago. Took them about 4 hours to diagnose and replace the parts. It was the blend door at the bottom of the dash. The service manager told me that our trucks have three of these type of blend doors in the dash. He said lucky for me it was the easier of the three to get to. I think it was actually lucky for him... if the others go out after my warranty I will be the one replacing them. My warranty is up in 5,000 miles so I am glad I caught this one in time.

Re: Odd sound from under dash...

there are three.

one is right by your right foot. thats the easy one. took me all of a hour to diagnose, and replace. if this is the one they replaced, and it took them 4 hours, you need to find a new shop.

the other two, you need to pull some serious stuff, and go in through the glove box, blind, around a corner, with one hand, or completely remove the dash.

i just had these two start clicking on me, so ill probably start them soon. the clicking is getting annoying.

the actuators are only like $16 a piece, and all three are the same.
