Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The noise that you are hearing is the blend door actuator, this is a small electrical motor that opens and closes the flap. The blend door motor is starting to stick and this causes the noise. The dash assembly has to be removed to replace this part.

Thanks for your reply we removed the glove box assembly and saw the heater assembly can the job be done from here or does the upper part of the dash need to come out if so could you say an approximate time this would take to remove/replace?

thanks

Yes the upper part has to come out and this takes about 3 hours of labor to do this. Thank you.
