Nissan Titan Or Armada AC / Heater Dash Clicking Noise Resolved With New Actuator

Do you have a clicking or ticking noise coming from the lower right side of your dashboard?

This is a common issue with all Nissan Titan or Armada models from the 2004 to the 2014 model. What happens is the motors begin to go bad, creating the annoying noise behind your dash.

When the actuators begin to go out, you will also lose your heating and cooling blend door, or the ability to adjust floor to defrost.

There are a total of four actuators on the airflow box under the dash.

Looking at the diagram below, you can see that three of the actuators with the red shading are exactly the same and are interchangeable with each other. There is one actuator that is different and that is the one shaded in blue, it is not interchangeable with the rest of the actuators.

Replacing your worn-out actuators will solve the problem with the ticking in the dash.

These are pretty easy to replace yourself and most of our customers have them installed within about 30 minutes to an hour.

Would/Could this be the noise that sounds like a motor when i turn off/on my titan? Also, noticing now that its cold…no heat nor defroster. Fan blows at various speeds based on dial.
