MKV: Knocking noise under driverside dash

'07 Rabbit

When Air or AC is on speed 1 or 2 (high speeds may be drowning out the noise), there is a light periodic rapping/knocking sound that seems to come from under the driver side dash. I was able to locate the part since it seems to attempt moving but it's stuck. Not sure if this is a for blender door or something similar.

Location: left side of the center console.
It's held by 6mm screw (at least i saw 1 (noted by picture with blue arrow) but there may be another holding it in.
There is another component that seems to be holding it down (6mm screw - pink arrow)

To access: remove bottom dash panel
Disconnect air plenum connecting to where the it looks like a blower resister or possible air sensor is located once the ducting is disconnected. This ducting has a screw on the left (haven't attempted to remove it completely) and probably needs more of the underdash to be removed.

Any ideas what this component is - In green square?

I'm not aware of any auto climate control.

Is there a way to confirm? I'm finding 2 different sets of HVAC part numbers: Looks like there is a Denso vs Valeo design

Ok...mine has no climate control since it's missing the temp display as well as heat temperature for the seats. Also my dials are analog.

OK so you have a Climatic and that is the V68 temp regulator flap motor and there are two different part numbers for it. I would contact the dealer and given them you VIN and ask for the correct Part number and price and then shop around if they are still available.
