Default 2004 rx330 ticking noise in dash

My rx330 occasionally has a ticking noise to the left side of the steering wheel in the dash. Will do it for an hour or so and then not do it again for 4 or 5 hours.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Possibly one of the servo motors or fuel injectors (see links below):

Have you figured out what that ticking noise is ???? I have the same issue with mine it got so bad it sounded almost like a rat or something in my dash trying to get out.... I was a little freaked out... turns out there is a little lever under the passengerside of the dash that must control the vent movement... and it was caught up so the motor kept ticking... with a little bit of grease it was all good./.

I had this same kind of ticking....it ended up being the little paddle that changes the direction of the air on the passenger side near the fire wall behind the gear shift console. It was stuck on my vehicle. It finally corrected itself.

Welcome to Club Lexus, CLPETTY.

More than likely, just as with this topic, it is one or more of the AC servos. You can search the forums here at CL on the topic and find a number of threads for the RX330, such as:

These are the parts:
