Angry Clicking noise

When ever the a/c, fan, heater is on there is a clicking noise. If anyone can tell me what this or what it might be it would be greatly appreciated. 01 4.0 XLT..

If its just a click every once in a while its normal its the AC compressor engaging/disengaging

Yeah, my truck did that for a while. My truck had sat up for a little while before I got it. When I turned on the a/c the rpm's would sometime jump down and the truck would JUMP! All it took was some time to break in.

It's a constant rapid clicking. And it's loud enough to hear with windows rolled up.

I wish that that's all it is but unfortunately its not I looked at it and had a hard time trying to pinpoint where it's coming from(the sound throws itself around the engine bay) but it sounds like it's coming from the pulley on the comp or somewhere underneath. Just wanted to see if anybody had and fix this prob.

Could just be the belt?

I don't think so. Last month I had to put on a new tensioner pulley and a belt because the pulley was squeaking like crazy. And thanks for all of the quick suggestions. this site is the best for these beautiful lil trucks.

Dude... I have the same problem on my 2004 Ford Ranger Edge model...

I had new belts put on about a year or so ago so this is not the problem...

My noise is also coming from what it sounds like the engine compartment on the passenger side OR somewhere under the dash near the CD player or passenger side...

I also had my girlfriend lean ( sounds dirty I know ) over while driving and she thinks the noise is coming from the clutch / brake / gas pedal area...

It is a constant clicking that is driving me nuts... Only does it while accelarating or when the clutch is out...

Clutch was replaced from the pedal down a few months ago so it cannot be the clutch... Runs smooth as silk !!!

Just bought a new heater box to fix this issue in my truck ($132 from FORD)

The impeller bearing went for the heater box.(wobbled in chamber, the clicking was the impeller hitting the edge of the case)

if you spray the hell out of it, it may quiet down, but, your cab will smell like WD-40 when you turn on heat or ac for a long while.

Hence why i went with new Heater box.

I may have 1 laying around, still new in box, ask your ford dealer if the 01 xlt are the same as 01 Edge(would think so).. we can setup a trade or sale...
