Air Vent Ratcheting Sound

2006 MDX - ratcheting sound from air vent system when temperature is adjusting. The blower and recirculating fans have been replaced under warranty by the dealership. Computer is not issuing any error codes. Anyone experienced the same issue; if so, what component is causing it? Any information will be appreciated.

Air mix motor.

I imagine if you set the temp to full cold or full hot, the noise goes away.

I will NOT answer requests for radio/navigation unlock codes, so please don't ask.

Yes, the ratcheting sound does stop when temperature adjustment is set at maximum high or maximum low. There have been instances when lowering it just 2 degrees will stop the sound, as well as setting the blower fan on maximum for 10-20 seconds.

Have this same problem with my 02 mdx when the AC or heat is on full blast, very annoying! How much is it to get it fixed?
