This part is behind the glove box. There are two. I originally replaced the wrong one. There's one just behind the glove box to the left in front of the blower motor and a second one (wrong one for me) topside to the right of the blower motor. At least I think it's the blower motor. That wasn't so easy to remove and install 30 to 45 minutes. The one that's in front was easy no problems 5 to 10 minutes tops. The two parts are mounted with two screws each that are a 7/32 socket. The one that's on the right top I had to use a universal joint due to the lack of space. The screws are just over hand tight.

Since there are two motors I would recommend to turn on the A/C or heater and turn the selector switch when you start to hear the clicking/popping sound and feel which of the two motors are making the sound. Don't waste your time switching out the wrong part like I did.

I wouldn't have been able to find this motor or replace it if it weren't for the previous comments. I just added a little more info to help out the next guy.

Product is often not in stock and you have to wait till the next day. Next, after 2 hours of removing panels, installed the ADA and it worked great. Put all the panels back. Drove the car two days and the new ADA stopped working. Waited an extra day because Advance does not keep it stock. Installed the second one and it broke 3 days later. Now, I am on the third ADA it has been working and not giving any problems. So, I have 5 hours of labor behind all these[*] made pieces of junk. If anyone needs help installing one, I have the labor down to one hour from start to finish with all the practice I had. (It was going to cost around $300 labor to have installed at the dealership). If this one breaks, I am going to shop somewhere else. Dear Advance, Please start selling American made products or lose a 25 year loyal customer.

Bought this for my Impala in October '13. The unit has failed May '15. So it worked for a while, but it didn't last. Watch Youtube videos for details on install.

        Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions HVA/C Air Door Actuator:

        My heater went out and I found out it was this actuator. The install is a little tricky. You really need small hands to reach the part and its screws. This makes it time consuming. It's behind the radio slot of the dash. After replacing it, I have had no other issues with climate control. It's been a year now.

        Not Satisfied

        Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions HVA/C Air Door Actuator:

        I agree with the post from "Price is cheap and Quality is cheaper" I have replaced two and one hasn't lasted 2 months... But looking at the OEM that I have replaced, it has made in China stamped on the side... Researching this it looks like it failes often and should be a recall issue... But you know how the auto industry is on recalls.

                  Cured the click,click problem in my 2006 Monte Carlo SS air conditioner recirculation door. Takes about 30 minutes to install. Just remove the glove box and the panel underneath and there it is.

                      I could be of some help, JH! Upon research, all it says it to remove the knee bolster bracket and then unplug the connector from the actuator and the screws from the actuator that's all.
