Heater Blend door

Anyone have an idea of what it will cost to get blend door actuator replaced?
Hope not an arm and a leg. Maybe just an arm.

Depends which one you are talking about and the vintage of your car - there's up to 5 of them. They range from moderately inconvenient to replace all the way up to "genuine PITA, tear the dash completely out of the car" difficult. I'm just a shade tree wrench puller myself and I've done the job on a 1997, 2001 & 2007 so its not impossible for a DIY. There's plenty of web resources to walk you through the job ahead of time. On my 2007 the guy I bought the car from had been quoted $2500 to $3000 by a dealership. It cost me roughly $200 for all 5 motors plus about a day out of my life with very limited assistance from my wife.

If it is clicking as most do when they malfunction....we just went through a lot of this and my "special copyrighted Toby-blend-door-no clicky-get heat and cold" procedure that can work fairly well for most people and save the what seems to be a min of 600-800 repair at shop for just the one replacement.

I've done them too and heater cores and it all sucks.

I'll link the other post thread in a min.

Here's the thread. Read post 8 and 14.

toby does the dual climate controls have more then one blend door actuator?? im guessing yes but i dont know about those systems.

i may be one of the few , but i didnt find it too bad to replace the blend door actuator , though i only pulled the dash back on the right side and snapped it of the top and replaced. but shortly afterwards the whole bend door hinge broke off . had to replace that , then the new one broke a year later, fixed with metal hinges this time , replaced core and actuator again just to be safe . im not saying i loved doing the dash apart 4 times but after the first it was like cake , if i had an indoor garage to work on at my house i would do that on the side and charge 1/2 of what places want .

Not Toby but ....... yes, there's a driver & pass side blend door located above the tunnel. The pass side motor is relatively easily accessible with no massive disassembly required. There's a recirc door located under the glove box which is also relatively easily accessed. The two bastards are the "mode" motors which I believe are placed on the assembly line first and then the entire car is built around them. To access them you remove the dash assembly, place it on your bench and then tear it down to bits until you finally get to the miserable motors.

Here's the notes I made for myself when I got done changing all the motors this spring:

9W1Z-19E616-B (AKA YH1768) This is the actuator for both the driver/pass blend door and the recirc door. The driver/pass doors are immediately above the tunnel on the air box. The pass side motor is accessible without removing the dash and the d side may also be accessible by removing the lighting module.

The two mode motors are each different. The one on the driver side has a straight actuator lever and the one on the passenger side has an actuator lever with a curved slot in it.

The mode door actuator for the driver side (straight lever handle) is YH-1754-1X or 9W1Z-19E616-B. The passenger side mode door actuator (curved lever handle) is YH-1755-1X or 9W1Z-19E616-C


Note that I said the driver side blend motor MAY be accessible without removing the dash. I saw some references online which suggested that and it kind of looked logical to me but when I did the job the dash was out anyway so I can't confirm that it is or isn't possible without removing the dash.
