Heater temp control makes a steady rithimic clicking sound as it is moved to warmer position. The clicking frequency increases the further right (warmer) you move the control. I need to access the control motor and other parts behind the dash but I don't know how to remove the dash area without damageing it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello -

Hey also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you. I would check these out also.
