How do I remove the glove box to get to the air recirculating door actuator that makes a thumping noise?


Asked by Apr 14, 2013 at 07:24 PM about the 2006 Pontiac G6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A thumping noise comes from under the dash with the a/c on.  I can press the air recirculation button and it stops.  If I press the fresh air button the noise starts back.  After researching, I have decided that it is some kind of actuator motor plastic gear making the noise.

1 Answer


There are screws inside at the top of the opening and some under the door hinge.
