Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions HVAC Air Door Actuator:

This part did solve my issue of having continuous heat blowing out even when control knob was set to cold. Now some notes: The dealer removes the dash to install the part. There are youtube videos showing how to replace it by only taking the glove box out to access it (which is what I did). Its a tight fit getting your hands in there and also trying to see using a flashlight. Not a real hard job but not all that easy as well. I have two gripes about the part but I am sure it does not affect the performance. First this part's electrical connection has only 4 pins and the original factory installed part has 6 pins which made it confusing. The vehicle's wire connector that plugs onto these pins only has three wires pins so that told me that the 6 pins were not used. So this part with only four pins works just fine. It's confusing when a replacement part is physically different than the original factory installed part it is replacing. My second gripe is that the coupler protruding out of this unit that fits over the shaft of the blend door is made out of plastic instead of metal as the original factory installed part is. I don't think it will affect the performance but I am not a fan of plastic because over time plastic wears down becomes brittle and breaks. Just like the plastic gears in these actuators that crack and break causing them to go bad. More than anything I wanted to point out that even though this part has less pins than the original that it infact is the correct part, fits and works.

I replaced this do to the factory GM starting to click and make noises, But it did not correct my issue of no defroster/heater. I found out that I need different actuators for the heat/defroster to work properly..

Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions HVAC Air Door Actuator:

Good price and works fine but feels light and not as heavy duty as the part it replaced. Does have a lifetime warranty however and cheaper than rest, used on an.old work car but for a nicer daily driver i would.opt for a heavier built part with metal sleeve and.gears. Time will tell....

          I'm glad to assist you, Tony! Depending on the HVAC system the truck has, it could have 4-6 actuators under the dash.

      • Q:

        I have a 2003 GMC Savana 2500. I replaced the blower resister so that all four positions of my air works now, but just before doing that, my A/C system became stuck on defrost/feet position. It won't move. Well, it's intermittent. And I noticed last night that if I had the mode on face/feet and changed the air blend to heat, it would blow through the face/feet but when I put it back to cold, it would go back to defrost/feet.

        So, my questions are: 1. I need the mode and the blend actuators replaced? or just the mode? and 2. Where the heck are they located in a GMC Savana? do I have to dismantle the whole dashboard to get to it?

          A:

          Happy to help you with your question Tomnibus! What you're describing it sounds like the blend door actuator or the mode select. I would suggest testing the Mode Selector at the AC Unit head. A second of the dash on the passenger side would have to be taken apart for replacement of the blend door. I suggest referring to a repair manual or a certified technician for more guidance on the procedure.

          Hi Willie, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

          A:

          Hi James, To get more specific information on the location of the HVAC actuator I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle. The repair manual part number is 24066

          I'm happy to help, Fred! It is located on the top of the HVAC module. It should be able to see it on the glove box out, it is on the right end of the top.
