Air Conditioning problem
2001 Toyota Avalon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
Automatic climate control in "auto" or "manual" has faint but noticeable popping noise as the damper switches modes from dash to floor & dash, from outside air to recirculate, etc. Dealer says servo motor and box assembly need to be replaced. Cost quoted for this was almost what the car is worth. Box assembly is basically a mixing box with dampers & linkage that are positioned by servo-motors. Dealer says the linkage, etc. Cannot be repaired and entire box must be replaced.
Can you offer some comments?
have the same problem?
