2000 Acura TL Q&A

2000 Acura TL Question: AC SYSTEM MAKES A NOSIE WHEN SYSTEM IS TURNED OFF. FLAPPER VALVE NOT SEATING?

When AC system is turned off. you hear a sound inside the car below dash. I can see what appears to be a valve / switch moving back and forth as if its stuck on not seating creating a noise. Sounds like plastic on plastic thumping? -
Answer 1
ITS PROBABLY A BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR THAT HAS BAD GEARS AND CANNOT CLOSE OR OPEN PROPERLY -
Comment 1
Not sure, BUT I electrically disconnected and reconnected and its working now! Is the blend door inside the vent system? Sounds like it is something that directs air flow? -
Comment 2
yes and it may work now but it will do it again -
Comment 3
Its doing it again! How do you fix it? How much? -
Comment 4
