gfhuntl: In my 2003 Taurus (manual control) the air coming out of the heater or A/C
is actually obstructed from time to time but not always. Sometimes the air
blows out fine but other times it feels like it is blocked. Hardly any
comes out. Is this vent air door actuator the problem? Thanks.
rafael hernandez: Am I gonna have to remove my center console to get to this part?
Anne Kaiga: Very helpful video. Helped me diagnose my blend door issue easily.
adon31997: I have a 97 Ford Crown Vic. Noticed when I turned on the air yesterday it
worked fine. And when I started driving the air redirected toward the floor
only. Then resumes coming back thru the vents 2 to 3 minutes later. Is this
the blend door actuator malfunctioning?
Frank Daniels: Thanks so much for the video. My air works well but I only get heat after
the car warms up. Living in s.w. Florida I have no need for heat so I will
remove the actuator and then clamp or screw the blend door into the cold
position only. ( hope that works) 😊Thanks again.
gardyj123: When I put on my defroster it's cold air.. Cold air works but I can't use
heat at all. Mechanic told me door malfunctioned but heat works. So I have
to just replace actuator??
Titan Ropero: you have no idea how long it took me trying to find the solution to the
problem of my car. THANKS FOR THIS VIDEO.
type2driver: Does this work on a 1997 Sable?
I know the blend door actuator is bad.
PreOrdainedPPP: Does the actuator control where the flow of air comes from? I'm not having
a problem changing the temperature but I am having a problem where it comes
from. Despite the setting, the heat and the air comes out of the window
defrost. I've heard different things - blend door, actuator, vacuum lines,
etc. I'm at a loss and need help please! M.
chagOwwuUUu: Is that why hot air comes out of one side my car and not the other??
Mom Dennis: everyone talking about air coming out of defrost only, but what if it only
come out of front vents and can't be changed? Is this the problem?
1A Auto Parts: @debbydoo2008 The problem of your ventilation system not blowing cold air
could be because of the actuator in the video. The car running hotter than
normal is a different issue.
1A Auto Parts: @trishatanya you could take a look at the blower motor to see if it's
staying on for some reason.
1A Auto Parts: @TheCoronet69 You may want to check all of the vacuum lines inside the
engine compartment and also under the dash. If you see that one is broke or
has come loose they fix it, and it may solve your vent door actuator video.
1A Auto Parts: @joaquinelectric1 Currently we do not have a video on this particular
repair on this vehicle. We'll keep this in mind in the event that we need
to fix one on this vehicle.
HappyDazeProductions: auto man says the motor to the blender door is shot. it will be 800 dollars
to replace. does this sound normal? are you replacing a blender door motor
here? we have a 99 merc grand marquis.. would it be in the same place?
1A Auto Parts: It could be a bad blower motor or possibly even a loose wire or connection.
You may want to check the connection going to the blower motor.
1A Auto Parts: The actuator is what controls the door. If the door itself is damaged, you
may have to drop the entire HVAC system down to get it out and replace it
with a new one.
trishatanya: hi! this morning when i start my car there is continuous tapping/clinking
sound come from behind the glovebox even my engine is off. even my key in
on acc position sound still come out.
Franko2020: Good video, but as I just found out the hard way, this is not a usable
procedure if your car has a center console... Just cost me around $240 at
1A Auto Parts: it might be in a slightly offset location but it should be the same concept
on how to replace the actuator.
1A Auto Parts: @jdotbarr7 Yes, if that peg is not moving your motor is not working and
your temperture blend is not changing.
1A Auto Parts: It might be slightly different because of the console being in the way
unfortunately. There is two different doors in the vehicle. There is one
called a vent door actuator and then another one called a blend door. Once
controls the temperature and the other controls which vents receive the air.
1A Auto Parts: @chagOwwuUUu Sounds like you have dual zone auto climate control? If that
is the case you may have a malfunctioning air door but the procedure to
replace may be different.
Liam D. Gray: Is this part also called the "blend door actuator," and does this procedure
work if one has a center console with radio and climate control?
debbydoo2008: i am getting hot air even tho my a/c is charged. Also, when I stop the car,
the fan comes on, but blows hot air into the car. My car is running hotter
than normal, but not overheating. Is this related to the blend door motor?
1A Auto Parts: Thanks for watching Jason. We carry these new actuators on our website with
free shipping. You can click on the link in the video and it will take you
to the part on our website. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: You should be able to lock the actuator in the a/c side but if the gears
are stripped inside the actuator, it may not stay open.
Frank Daniels: Thanks for the info on the actuator. Hopefully this will allow my ac to
actually blow cold air instead of heater core air. If this isn't the
problem I'll be checking out your other videos to help me diagnose my
problem. Thanks again😀
Al Bee: Awesome! Mine was easy to replace! Works awesome now! Thanks SO MUCH!
PutschPatriot: @1aauto - I have a ford f-150 titan.... I am told that it should leak out
over the inside cabin if it goes bad? My heater went out last winter, but I
found the two hoses that lead to the heater core, released them, and stuck
a water hose inside to flush it out. It works fine now........ Basically
changing the heater core is my last resort, I found that it is somewhere
inside the dash panel?
Nick B: Thanks for the video. I was able to remove the old one and put in the new
one following your instructions and everything worked fine. That fixed
mine. Thanks alot!
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows that particular
repair. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: You may want to check in the engine bay and also under the dash for a
possible loose, cracked or broken vacuum line which could be causing this
situation. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: Usually they'll make a sound or click like they are trying to pop up, but
they do not. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
strawboy1764: I have a 1998 Taurus with the auto temp control and the blend door actuator
stopped working my first thing I checked was the blend door and found it
not working . so naturally I replaced it well that's not the problem still
not working, checked all fuses and relays even checked all buttons on dash
then checked for power to actuator no voltage to actuator anybody have any
more ideas on why it wouldn't be working
tero doug: 2000 merc sable no air comes from middle vents just top and bottom, is this
an vent door actuator problem, how do you get the middle console out or past
1A Auto Parts: @PutschPatriot If a heater core goes bad inside of a vehicle, they tend to
leak onto the passenger side. floor.
1A Auto Parts: There is a temp door and a vent door. The one that is not shown would be
the one you would have to replace. We currently do not have a video for the
rondacosta: I have a Sable Wagon 2000. No automatic climate control. Hot or cold air
output is stuck coming only from windshield defrost outlets. I see here
about "blend" air problems related to graduating (mixing) air temperature,
not about how different air outlets are controlled, like front vents,
floor, etc. Could anyone please help? Many thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
YTSparty: Is there a difference between the "controller" and the actuator? They look
identical. I just tested mine out, and the white controller is clicking.
Are the black and white, both actuators or is there a difference?
1A Auto Parts: We carry them on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
tiktakan: sir when i turn on the air recirculation button in my car. it is not
working. so the pollution and the heat should be going inside.. what is the
1A Auto Parts: @PutschPatriot If it kind of has a maple syrup smell, it might be the
heater core. You might want to check around on the passenger side to see if
anything is leaking, or if the floor is wet.
1A Auto Parts: If you're looking for the one that's shown in the video, you can click on
the link in the video and it will bring you to that part on our website.
Marcos Tapia: i own a 2007 mustang and it makes a clicking noise when i swich it from
defrost to ac can.this also be related to the actuator?
1A Auto Parts: You may want to check the blower motor resistor to see if it's working
SuperDro29: how can you tell the actuator is defective?
jdotbarr7: would i be correct in assuming that if the peg on the blend door motor
would not rotate or work ......then may not be able to get heat from your
llamaking12: @1aauto yeah its just when i move the selector from cold to hot. all the
other (defrost feet vent etc.) work and some times it will click a couple
times then it will go. ill try to make a video here soon
