That is most likely a malfunctioning component in the ventilation controls, such as an actuator or blend door. It’s actually not uncommon and thus there are quite a few reports of this "clicking". To resolve it requires a bit of disassembly. If you want a conclusive diagnostic and repair estimate, please schedule using YourMechanic’s HVAC system diagnostic service request page.
