Clicking noise with ac

Asked by Feb 15, 2016 at 12:48 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car is making a clicking noise with my ac
it's getting louder . I can't get an estimate
of about how much this could cost bc I'm
being told they first have to remove the
dashboard which could be pricey but
that's just to see what it is they still
couldn't give a price which makes me
scared how do I know it's in my budget

Is the clicking noise coming from the dashboard area? if so you most likely have a blend-door actuator or fan problem. could be failing or even have something stuck in it - items on the floorboard like plastic bags can get sucked into them at times

Yes it's coming from my dashboard first on the passenger side only now the passenger side then it stops and a louder faster clicks starts on the driver side stops all together after 10 minutes . Should I just go to a place that is telling me they would have to take it apart and could be 200 just to take apart. Once they take it apart they are saying then they could see what it is and talk pricing . I'm a female so I'm so confused on how to handle this without paying over 600- 700.00

I would definitely recommend having someone at least diagnose it. I understand your concern about being ripped off - especially as a female, it truly does happen and it unfortunate that people are jerks like that. I would suggest asking a close friend (female) where she has her car serviced and if she trust them - that is the best way to avoid getting ripped off. but you do need someone to diagnose it properly either way. That should be able to be done without tearinf your car apart

I spent 25 years in the service end of the auto business and I believe this diagnosis shouldn't cost more than $100 - even at the dealership

I would look for a shop that specializes in car C/C and then look them up and see if they have any good reviews. But remember they control what goes on their website. Perhaps in their experience on working on A/Cs in cars, they can give a quick diagnose and cost estimate. Since the noise has moved, it does sound like there is something in the air lines. Missing an earring? Ok, bad joke. Remember, if you don't get a good feeling about the estimate, and plan to fix it, drive away.
