Q: Clicking when A/C is on

asked by on

My car is having a clicking sound when the A/C is turned on. I'm not sure what it is or how to fix it.

My car has 39675 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The temperature or mode a/c doors in the dash heater air conditioner doors have electronic actuators that when they go bad may start to click when the a/c is turned on or when trying to change door position that has the defective actuator.
