"Clicking" sounds behind glove compartment

Post by gralm » Tue Aug 13, 2019 7:51 am

My daughter's Vibe 2003 started giving "clicking" sounds behind glove compartment. Sounds are not metallic - rather plastic parts involved. I found in the Hayne's book that blower is housed behind behind glove compartment. Any experience with similar problems?

I think you mean a stopped clock. If it's running backwards, it's not right any time of day :)

well, a clock running backwards would be right at least twice a day, maybe more depending on clock speed. A clock running forward slowly might only be right every other day, or every other month, depending on how slowly. Assuming non-relativistic movement of the clock to the observer. Still, slow, fast, stopped or backwards clocks are not very useful. Caretaker, on the other hand, is quick to help folks here, so he is a lot more useful than a broken clock

I dunno. I've found stopped clocks very useful. They keep the door from closing.
