Air flow control... odd noises

Hey all,

Just a quick one (I hope)

When I switch my EL onto accessories, with air control on 'recirculate' there's a weird clicking and motor noise down under the console on the passenger side... Should it be making noises to close/open vents?

No noises when it's switched to 'straight thru' mode.

Nothing major, just wondering if these sorts of noises are normal.

Green P's, '97 EL Falcon GLi, just got my stereo in... Next come Pacemakers, 2.5" custom exhaust, V8 Intake scoop with K&N Hi-Flow filter, lowering, XR6 ECU, chip that too thanks, maybe even some mags, wide profile rear tyres, semi low pro all round... wait, no, damn rego payments come first... That and cleaning out the MANK that the previous owner left... Oh well. Dreams are free. Pity petrol isn't.

Yes it's OK; sniffer motor running etc.

Edit: Oops correction; that's true only if you have climate control.

Sounds like you have a Leaf or somthing similar in the fan.
Thats why there is no sound when its on straight through(vent).

Lol, will give it a shot. Not too worried, but it's just one of those things that stick in ur head whenever you start your car...

Thanks for the input.
