Chevrolet C/K truck mode and blend door actuator replacement

Here's a video covering a common repair issue on GM C/K series trucks. If you are having problems with no heat, no cooling or air coming out from the wrong place and you've confirmed that the control panel isn't burnt up, then chances are you have a failed actuator. Air door actuators are cheap and fairly easy to replace on these vehicles. However, ensure that the control panel IS functioning and sending commands to the suspect actuator before condemning it. There are three actuators which do three different things, so make sure you have identified which one is defective before buying a replacement. 1. Mode door: Mounted on end of case near driver's right foot. Controls where airflow comes out at. 2. Blend door: Mounted on rear(tailgate side) of case roughly behind the ashtray. Controls how hot or cold air is. 3. Recirculate door: Mounted on top of case, very hard to access. Controls whether air is fresh or recirculated. Most people don't bother replacing it. WARNING: DO NOT "TEST" ACTUATORS WITH THEM DETACHED FROM THE HVAC BOX!!! THEY WILL OVERTRAVEL AND BE OUT OF INDEX AS YOU'LL SEE IN THE VIDEO. YOU CANNOT REPAIR THIS EASILY, SO ALWAYS HAVE THE ACTUATOR MOUNTED TO THE BOX BEFORE ANY KIND OF TESTING TAKES PLACE. ALSO, INSPECT THE FLAPS THEMSELVES TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE NOT HANGING UP. AS WE ALL KNOW ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH GM.

How to see through clothing
CORRECTION: The description originally stated that exposed film was to be used, but you actually have to use blank, developed slide film (or exposed, developed, 35mm film). First off my apologies for the very shoddy camera work and even shoddier narration. Secondly, this is merely my own personal findings after conducting several very unscientific tests using esotericsean's method of turning an ordinary camcorder into one that only lets in infrared light, allowing the operator to 'see through' various objects including clothing. The tests speak for themselves and yes, by using this method you can actually see what people are wearing under their clothing, provided that the clothing is relatively clingy, and is a thin fabric. Dark clothing works the best, but I've also gotten great results with all colors, provided that the fabric is thin and clingy. The method: In case you haven't seen EsotericSean's video tutorial, the method is simple. You take any ordinary video camera with night shot capability, and you take a piece of BLANK, DEVELOPED slide film (or exposed, developed 35mm film) and put it over the lens. The film filters out all light other than infrared and the night vision disengages the infrared blocker in the camera. Now, if you want to be a little daring and don't care about using the camera normally ever again you can try removing the IR blocker from the camera entirely, although some people have said that it screws up the focus. So I suppose this is good news to all you pervs out there. LOL. If you liked the video please comment/rate it. Thank you.

1999 Tahoe HVAC Head Unit Replacement - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Welcome back to another episode of ETCG where we boldly go where we haven't before, taking apart the dash on this 1999 Chevy Tahoe. To be honest it was easier than I thought, if I were to do it again I would try first cleaning the switch and if that didn't work I would just replace the switch for the problem this truck had. I'm learning things here too you know. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- ETCG
