Having problems with your 2009 Ford Flex ?

Loud knocking/banging inside dash/glovebox

\015 My 2009 ford flex has started making a loud knocking noise coming from the middle of the dash - closer to the glove box. Knocking or tapping runs about 15 seconds and stops. Does not occur again until engine has turned off for a brief period. Noticed this only when it is over 80 outside. what can be making that noise?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 11-12-2017

Answers :

We had the same issue on our 2009 Flex. The problem was the motor or the gate (I can't remember which) that switches where the air comes out for the climate control. Took it to the dealer and had it replaced under warranty. It didn't take long (maybe 30min - 1hr).

It seemed like the system had a built-in fail safe that shut the motor down after a few seconds when the gate didn't make it to the desired selection. If you change the blower around when the fan is running (e.g. switch from floor to bi to dash to defrost), you'll probably hear the thumping come back as the gate tries to move, but can't.
