    I am getting a soft “clicking” noise behind my glove box only when I have the resurc button on for AC. Any idea how to fix this?

    Clean cabin air filter. Might be something in there

    It's most likely the motor that opens and closes the re circulation door/flap behind the glove box. I replaced it for $30 with a dorman part from Rock Auto. Problem solved.

    Not the cabin air filter. I just replaced it and didn’t fix it.

    I have a "buzzing" sound from behind the glove compartment but I don't think it's any thing to do with the AC.

    I think that's probably the wiring harness, like a clip or the wires themselves. I get a clicky buzzy sound behind the glove box and another behind the radio that come and go depending on weather, one is more obvious when it's cold and the other has replaced it now that summer is approaching. Every time I hear it I think I need to dig in and put some zip ties up there but that's promptly forgotten once I turn on the radio.

    You could just open up that motor, and turn the broken tooth gear 180° so it uses fresh teeth.

    Yeah, I've taped and tied everything I could find.

    Somebody told me it was a clip behind the air bag, I'm just not qualified to be messing with anything like that.
