Testimonial: "thank you for the info! Is there anything else I should check for or beware of, while I have the dash off?"
This actuator is located on the front of the HVAC housing to the right
of the floor panel transmission tunnel, and cannot be removed from the
passenger compartment without instrument panel and HVAC housing
1. Remove the dash assembly
2. Remove the HVAC assembly
3. Unplug the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator
4. Remove the 2 screws that secure the blend door actuator to the HVAC housing.
5. Remove the blend door actuator from the HVAC housing.
(1) Install the blend door actuator on the HVAC housing and tighten the two mounting screws to 2.2 N·m (20 in. lbs.).
(2) Plug in the wire harness connector to the blend door actuator.
(3) Install the HVAC unit into the vehicle
(4) Install the instrument panel assembly into the vehicle
(5) Connect and the battery negative cable.
Sorry for the bad news friend, drivers side was the easy side to work on. You can try resetting the Blend door by disconnecting the battery for 2 min, just make sure your radio is off first be fore battery disconnection.
The doors are controlled by a stepper motor. The issue with the system is that the drive motor has a wider range of motion than the movement of the door will allow. At the extents of movement(full heat or full AC), the motor overdrives the plastic blend door into the the internal stop point in the heater box until the motor stalls. This is considerable force on the door and over time, the door cannot withstand the force and will break. Once the door breaks, you lose control over the ability to regulate between heat and AC.
Driver's side is easily accessible through the glove box, but passenger motor is located behind the heater box and is inaccessible without removing the heater box.
