Chevy Blend Door Actuator Replacement - Part 1
This video describes the basic task of replacing one of the cooling system
blend door actuators. As described in the video, we have a 2010 Traverse
that all of a sudden started only blowing HOT air into the passenger seat.
After days of internet study, I found that it was most likely the "blend
door actuator". I found a cool parts diagram of the AC system, so knew
where to look. After finding the bad actuator, I removed it, ordered the
part, and am ready to install the working part.
Blend Door? Or ... ?
Here is a video to help solve a real problem: The Heating and A/C controls
would not work. The air would only come out the Defrost Vent. Here is the
simple solution I found to solve this problem for free. Normally for such a
problem as this, you would change the Blend Door Actuator module, however
as you will see, you can first check your dash switches to see that they
are plugged in. Here is how you do it ...

02 Ford Explorer Heat Blend Door Actuator Simple Fix - No Tools Needed
This is a 02 Ford Explorer that has a broken and worn heat blend door
actuator. The labor at a dealership with parts is approx $700-800 if you
take it to the pros, The cost of the part is approx $65.00 if you want to
do it yourself, or you can give this a try and save even more.
The part I will be referring to later in the video is a plastic flap, which
is approximately 3" long and is located almost directly behind the wires
you see in the video along the edge of the wall compartment. It needs to
be pushed down, and you will hear it as it reaches the correct position.
Once you locate this, it will only take a few seconds to change in the
The blend door will easily work with the air condition control knobs, but
once you switch it to cold air, you will need to switch this back manually
as in the video.
Hope this tip helps.

95-01 ford explorer blend door quick fix (5 minutes)
For those of you who like me, don't want to shell out 1200$ to fix this
blend door issue, you can do this. I'm writing it in as simple a way as i
can for those, who like me, aren't very mechanically inclined.
open glove box, and push the sides in to drop the box down as far as
possible. you will see a big black plastic box. inside of that box is the
blend door, and your heater core (looks like a miniature radiator).
take a razor knife and on the farthest left side of that box, cut a square
hole big enough to get your hand in (only cut 3 sides of the square though
so that you can just bend the plastic down out of your way and put it back
in place when finished). now that it's open, you can see the heater core,
but not the blend door. the blend door is located around the back left side
of the heater core. reach your right hand in, with your thumb down, so the
palm of your hand is facing the passenger side of the truck. when you reach
behind the heater core, you will feel the blend door, and you can swing it
open or closed. if you want your air conditioning to work, open the door
all the way. if you want your heat to work, close the door all the way.
after you have adjusted the door how you want it, blend the plastic you cut
to get your hand in, back to it's normal position and tape it up with some
duct or thick masking tape.
unfortunately you can only have hot or cold doing it this way, but it saves
you 1200$ and a lot of headaches trying to fix this by pulling the dash.
for where i live, i need only a.c. in the summer, and only heat in the
winter, so i just go in and change the door position twice a year. the
original job takes about 5 minutes, then at the beginning of summer or
winter when i go in to change the door position, it takes me about 3
minutes, and most of that time is spent removing the tape and re-taping it.
i hope this helps someone. !
