I finally found the two wires Terry referred to in his post #7. Not at the location he mentioned but close to where the clapping noise was coming from, over near the fan motor. They came out of a large bundle on top of the AC/Heater housing and dissappeared over the back near the clapping noise source. I tried to unplug them from the top, through the glove box hole, but just couldn't get at them. Went under the bottom and managed to unclip the plug lock and "walah", got it unplugged. I was praying that it was the correct two wires and plug because there is ZERO chance that I could ever get that plug reconnected.......well maybe possible chance with the help of a mirror....
I think that now disabled clapping motor operated the door to the fresh air intake port. If that is correct, then that door is now closed and I now have no FRESH AIR access through the Heater or the AC. Can anyone confirm that?
The MAX AC (recirc), Defrost and Heater all seem to still work as they should. If I need fresh air, I can open a window!
Kudos and Karma for Terry! Thanks to all for your comments.
Is this a GREAT website, or what!! Bill
