I have read with interest the comments regarding the air recirculation flap. I have Megane cabriolet that started making the same clicking noise. Today I set about removing the unit. The car has aircon so if anyone else is repairing this themselves they will need to have the aircon degassed. When the unit was out I found the flap shaft was bent and the motor gear damaged. Not been able to get one from a breakers so I have replaced the unit minus the flap and motor.
if i dont come across any issues I will consider not replacing the flap.
Hope this helps others with the same problem.
Did you manage to remove the flap, have the same problem, so far have just removed the connector which stops the clicking when ignition is first switched on but would like to remove the flap completely.
On stripping down a far way I cannot see how to split the aircon apart to remove flap, as it sits behind a bulkhead underneath the windscreen lower panel.
