occassional clicking noise
2010 Ford F-150 22,000 miles. Began to notice a plastic click coming from the area of the glovebox. Sounds like the click one would get if a small rock was picked up and hit a metal portion of the body except striking plastic. If's definitely inside. Since it's winter now, it only happens once or twice (at most) at startup or shortly thereafter. My gut feeling is it has something to do with the heater or a door being moved. Before I take to the socket wrenches and begin poking around, I'd like to have at least some idea of what I may be looking for.
These trucks have issues with the mode/blend door actuators. The clicking sound is a tell tell sign that yours is about to bite the dust.
And idea where the actuator is located? Plain XL, nothing fancy, no automatic controls, no center console. No duel air, etc. Checked the internet, cannot find an article which states where it is located and what has to come out to get to it.
From what I have found its right behind the radio.
