so the clicking noise you here is a very common problem with all of jeep chrysler and dodge products. 90 percent of the time it is the recirculation door actuator. when you press the button to either let fresh air into the car or close it off, the actuator that moves the door to do so usually becomes weak and needs to be replaced. easy way to pin point which actuator that is, is when the clicking noise is happening try and put your hand on one of the actuators behind the glove box and feel which one is clicking. its not an expensive part nor labor intensive.

if you have any further questions please feel free to ask I am here for you.

How do I pull out the glove compartmentNo
Dodge Mechanic: Thomas Ragusa,

bare with me one moment while I get that information. just disregard the pop ups

if you open the glove box door you will see 6 philip screws, two on the side and I believe 4 up top. you dont need to take out the two screws closest to the latch. then you will want to remove the side panel to the right of the dash, there are two more screws behind that to remove. once those screws are removed you will need some force, you can use a flat screw driver to pry the glove box away from the dash cause there are clips that hold it in place.

you will also have to disconnect two wires, one on top of the box assembly and one on the silencer panel below the box. do not remove any plugs from the star connector, its the green and while connectors on the back of the glove box, you will know what im talking about when you see it. just disconnect the entire thing from the glove box by sliding it towards the center of the dash.

Ok thanks

the actuator I am sure is the problem will be facing you right behind the glove box assembly. when it is clicking just put your hand on it to confirm. once the glove box is out you will have plenty of room to work with.
