Hey Everyone!
New problem from the Escape - there's a ticking noise coming from under the passenger side dash. Only when any of the vent system is turned on, A/C - heat - reg air blowing - anything. Goes away when all is turned off. Just a leaf/stick in there, or is it something more? Doesn't sound very organic though - almost sounds more mechanical, but that could just be because of where it's coming from?
Thanks for any and all help!

Thanks David,
Yeah - I talked my brother last night (he's a mechanic) and he said to him it sounds like the blower motor. Could be that a leaf or nut or something got in there, or the rotating plastic piece cracked that's inside it, or might just need a new blower motor - either way, he said it's not too bad and nothing to really worry about - more annoying that anything else. Which he is very corrrect on :)

Yeah, if it didn't get better, I was definitely going to fix it. Even on the lowest setting and the radio on, you could still hear it. BUT - that being said - it fixed itself. Must have been something stuck in there. We were camping up in Canada and all of a sudden it got louder, so, of course being very annoyed I cranked up the air to full blast and it suddenly stopped and hasn't ticked since. Must have had something stuck! :)
