I was thinking maybe it’s the blend door actuator ? Because I hear a clicking noise on the passenger side by the glove compartment

99% under charged gas.
u can run blend door calibration without a tech2, but calibration will not do anything if the motor is broken.
and if u have tech2 better use it to read A/C pressure while working.

Ok when I put my new compressor in I had someone recharged the A/C but maybe they didn’t do it right or it leaked out
What do you think the clicking noise could be on the passenger side under the dash ? It starts clicking when I turn the air off and when I turn the air on it clicks for like 10 seconds then stops

Damper motor, as Hus_sho says.

Mine has clicked for like 15 years. That's not the issue.

That usually means the plastic pawl or stop in the stepper motor mechanism for the damper are stripped if the damper's calibrated.

Do you get the same noise when you press the air recirculation button ( I think that is what it is called)?
Yellow circled button

The clutch was bad I put Freon in the old compressor and the clutch didn’t engage that’s how I determined it was a bad compressor so I put the new compressor in, had someone re-charge it, now the clutch an everything is engaging it’s just blow out cold air on the driver side, and blowing out hot in the middle an the passenger side

I have a 2009 95 and have the exact same issue, had a very competent mech check it out and he ruled everything out so now we think it is a blend door issue which sucks for that is a pain and could be expensive. When the weather gets better I am going to take out the blower fan and run a scope down to see if I can find anything before I take the whole dash out. Let me know if you find anything [email protected]
