Any ideas what this noise could possibly be? I've looked online for dash noises and haven't found anything that sounds similar. Faint clicking noise, seems to be coming from the dash somewhere but I can't pinpoint where. 2011 Honda pilot, 80,000 miles. It's intermittent, but has been happening for a while, but seems to be getting louder and more frequent. A/C is off. It's easily heard when in park, but I'm certain I have heard it while sitting at a red light and driving at low speeds (less road noise.)

YouTube video clip - might have to turn up your volume because it isn't a very loud noise

Does the sound change as you change speed settings for the vent fan?

That is faint. I would check on the mix motors - those are the ones that move the blend doors for heat. When the motors go bad, they tend to move at odd times and make a sort of scratching sound. If you have dual climate, then there is one on each side. On the driver side, it is on the center console just above the gas pedal (see links below). Passenger side is same position on the opposite side.

Here is a good thread and photo to guide you:

When you hear the noise, I would drop down and look in this area. The arm attached to the motor should not be twiching - it is then you can attempt to repair or replace.
