Ticking sound on startup coming from under the dash

Whenever I start the car now I get 3 - 10 loud clicks from behind the center vents under the dash. It sounds to me like it has something to do with the A/C. It has been happening for about a week now, it started out as 2 or 3 clicks but this morning it was about 10. Has anyone had this problem or have any idea what it could be? I searched for clicks and all I found were threads about it coming from the engine or underneath the car. This definitely sounds like it is coming from inside the cabin under the dash between the glove box and the vents. Was going to take a look this weekend but if I had an idea what to look for that would be helpful.

Check if your car has Blend Door Actuators. Mine on my old 08 had some broken teeth inside them and caused this sound. Each vent would have one if it does have them.

Thanks. I was able to search "blend door actuators mustang" on google and a lot of useful info came up. Here is a link to another mustang forum that looks pretty helpful. I'll let y'all know if it worked.

No problem. If I remember correctly, the part itself was cheap. It was just a tight squeeze getting to the old parts to remove them.

It's the actuators. Had the same problem in my 2012.
