2001 Mercedes-Benz C240 ProblemsBroken Stepper Motor Actuating Arm May Cause Clicking Noise From Behind Dash
A repetitive clicking noise from behind the center area of the dash panel is usually caused by a broken stepper motor actuating arm. The actuating arm controls the direction of air flow in the climate control system. Disassembly of the center console will be required to access and change the broken arm with the updated, reinforced part.
Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.
The sway bar end link joints may wear and cause a knocking noise over bumps. Loose or warn links should be replaced to correct this type of noise.

Have recently changed the battery, crank sensor and both upstream and downstream 02 sensors and am getting the ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program) reading. Car won't crank sometimes but will after I have let it rest for a half hour or more.
