Hi, start with replacing the actuator that is clicking. They are common to fail, the gears inside strip out and cause the clicking noise, then recheck the A/C performance. It definitely makes it colder on recirc vs. fresh air.
It could be a blend door issue. Is the thicker A/C line going to the evaporator coil getting cold?
Ok, let me know how it works after you replace it.
Technically, yes you would need a factory scan tool to run the HVAC door calibration but it might run itself when you replace it then do a battery disconnect for 30 seconds.
How are you making out?
Some frost on the suction line is normal under certain conditions, but not completely iced over. If the evaporator was frozen, you'd lose air flow from the vents though. It concerns me that you are still hearing a clicking with the new actuator, there might be something else broken in the HVAC box.
Some 200's have dual zone temp control. Even on single zone, there are 2 blend doors for left and right but they are locked together (or supposed to be). That clicking you're still hearing plus the temperature difference now is really starting to sound like there's still an issue in your HVAC box.
Its possible, the only way to know is to have it recovered and recharged and see how much comes out when it's recovered. I wouldn't worry about the condensation dripping unless your hearing water sloshing in the box.
