Unhappy Renault Megane 1 - Clicking Noise From Dashboard On Start Up

when i switch the ignition on in my 2000 megane cc 1600 auto i hear loudish clicking and a motor noise from the left side of the dashbord it stops after about 5 seconds, this also happens if the recirculating fan is switched on. car runs ok when started.

Do you have aircon fitted? Cars are getting too clever these days - maybe the motor noise is the recirculation flap being activated to stop exhaust fumes from being drawn into the car just after it has started (in case you are reversing out of a garage or onto a main road etc)?

yep its the reciculation Flap/Motor.. At worst case you will need a complete airbox to fix it (if the flap stop pin has broken).. If it has aircon then the cost of the box is 450..

This is great. I have the same problem which started a week ago and now you've given me an idea of what the problem is, I know I can drive safely until it's service which is due very soon.
Apparently if air con works - I don't need to get this problem sorted??
Thanks to everyone involved in this posting.
