AverageOkie: 2002 Taurus, no hot air..where is the door actuator on mine! Autozone guy was talking about something being stiff when he tried to move it, but after he got it moving it worked fine...it was behind and up over the glove box area..I seen an arm like device with a white “elbow” if you will...I can’t get it to move much..I don’t know what he was messing with, but I had heat when he was done messing with whatever it was...

Kenneth Williams: AC blows out my vents everything works execpt the heat itll blow a lil burst of heat then after that nothing. What could it be?

David dpal: thank you for sharing, however, I have the electronic thermostat/radio,in my 1999, model, the "Air blend Actuator",is very difficult to even see,without twisting your neck, and it look's identical,but has a dif model number, I had to remove the entire Radio/thermostat unit, let it hang, remove the glove box,and cover below it, remove a box, covering the top right mounting screw ,of actuator, all screw's ,had to be removed by left hand assisting right,left hand thrue radio hole,right hand,from under removed cover,under dash, with 1/4" rachet and 8mm 1/4" socket, 3/8" woulda been to big, jus saying,in case someone else has the electronic. but your vid's have helped me several times. you guy's are awesome !!!

Robert Golden: My issue is that on a cool or cold day, with vent only set, heat still comes out the floor vents, not much, but definitely more than outside temp. So, I need to run the a/c even on cool or cold days rather than allow fresh air in with vent only. Is this the part to fix that?

Nick D: Air won't come our of dash vents. How do you know if it the air door actuator or if it is bad vacuum hose. How and where do you fin the vacuum hose that may be bad or disconnected.

Chris Cavallaro: I have a 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium with a center console. How would I gain access to the Actuator without removing the entire dash?

Adam Schofield: if it makes a clicking sound does it need to be replaced ?

SeeMooreVids: 1a... Just wanted to thank you for a great video and fair price for my actuator, not to mention next day delivery for free. I'll be frequenting you parts department. Thanks.

Conde Nast: Don't really know if this is the problem since, there was a puffing noise from behind he glove box area when AC was running and now there is the smell of coolant and fogging in the cabin.

JIBBA DABOSS: I have a 2004 Ford Taurus with the center console. My heat works but after so long it starts blowing cold air what could be my problem?

Carol lockridge: Thank you for this video!!!

Jon Orlick: Would this be the same on a automatic temp control on a 2005 sable?

Dixie Moran: My problem is the ac/heater only blows thru the window vent... not the dash or floor, face is either boiling or freezing while feet are just the opposite... how do I fix this??

Paul Hall: I've replaced my actuator and my temp petrol switch and my blend door still isn't working

Rodney Clements: Thank you for posting! Your videos are always so helpful. I am a customer of 1A Auto and appreciate the fast service when ordering parts!

Jay Wieder: Really helpful, was easy to install. Thank you Mike.

Davey Vega: how much hours the repair calls?

Bruce Taylor: This video was very helpful.  I thought the actuator was on the firewall under the hood.

ronv11: how about showing how to do this repair on a 2004 crown vic?

Ezekiel's Call: I had read about issues with this actuator but it helped immensely to actually see it, how to access it, exactly where it is and how to take it out and replace it. I took a look at mine but I prob will need to take it out to check it.. now I can do it with confidence! Thank you! XD
