Question Clicking from dash after starting

I am wondering what is causing a clicking noise coming from my dash when I start my car. It goes off when I change the settings on the dial for the airflow. Sometimes it goes off after a few minutes, and sometimes I have to turn the engine off and restart the car. I have a 2005 Equinox.

most likely one of the AC vent actuators.
It probably had a broken tooth on a gear- and makes a popping sound.

Ive seen this on Impalas, Traverse, Equinox etc...........

here is an example.

2013 Equinox LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 88,000
2010 Traverse LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 153,000
2003 Trailblazer LS 4.2L I6 RWD 181,000
