My first guess is one of the door actuators for the Heater A/C System.

how do i find out which one?

do not want to talk yet,trying to save money
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 8 months ago.

You can probably remove the glove box and start car and determine which one. The dash likely needs to be removed to replace and they do require a re calibration with a scan tool once replaced

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 8 months ago.

OK. So when moving it makes loud noise? First thing to try. Top of windshield see if the trim is loose. try putting some duct tape down on it and see if it stops
