Customer Question
Hi, when I preas...

Hi, when I preas the windscreen defroster / demister, no air comes out, only clicking sound. The fan also only works on high (I suspect this is the resistor that needs replacing)

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Behind the dashboard, about a week.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Hyundai?

2005 2.2 diesel automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

None tried so far. Will try myself first

Hello, I hope you are doing great today. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this.

Since you are hearing the clicking noise that tells me that it is an issue with the Mode Door Actuator. The Actuator controls the air output for the vents, when the gears inside the actuator break they will get stuck and you will hear a clicking noise when trying to change the air outlet to the floor/defrost positions. The actuator assembly can be replaced by itself

Hey, its a 2005 diesel auto
UK Auto Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay here is a picture of the location. It is behind the glovebox assembly. To remove it you with need a 7mm socket/ratchet and extension, it is mounted in a bit tight and takes about an hour to replace
