    My daughter just bought a 2010 Impala and she has the same problem. I first thought it to be related to the ac unit because it happened when we would first put the air on..but now, as soon as I unlock the door the clicking noise begins. I really wish I could figure this out. Great car but it came with two problems. This noise and the fact that it shakes/bounces when you drive 40 to 60 miles. Did you just get this car? Or have you had it awhile and the clicking noise just started? I'm sure these are inherent problems...and before needless money is spent searching for its source...I hope someone out there can help us.

    It's the Fresh Air Door Actuator, it's actually a common problem on these cars. It is located behind the glove box
