Unwanted ticking noise in ducts


We recently finished our basement
We love it BUT we are hearing a very loud ticking noise coming from air ducts every time the heater kick in or shut down. It is driving me crazy

It is coming out of the vents and we can not see the air ducts any more
I dont remember hearing this noise before we added the dry walls to the basement

Any idea what should we do before we rip off the dry wall??

What do you mean by grille??..Please explain as I am not sure where is the noise come from. I can hear it by standing below the air vent opening & I can also hear it from the first floor just above the basement ceiling

The grille is the cover where the hot air exits the duct and enters the room.Sometimes loosening those attatchment screws can stop a ticking noise.

Ayuh,... My guess is,.. You got your framing or drywall tight to the ducts,+ now with the expansion,+ contractions,..
It's now making the Noises...
