SOURCE: how to replace blend door actuator in a ford

I recently did mine, I hear you can do it without taking the entire dash apart but I had no luck with it myself. I have to get ready for work but, on mine it was located down and to the left of the radio. its a white box...are you hearing a clicking noise or something? I had to roll the entire dash back and it was still a major pain getting it out.

I need to know if there is an external heater control valve on the eatc unit in my 2003 grand marquis /


This vehicle does NOT use a heater control valve. Coolant flows to the heater core at all times. Temperature is regulated by the blend air door and blend door actuator. Locate the blend door. Remove the actuator and open the door by hand. If you get heat, the actuator or the control head is bad. FWIW, the actuator is the most likely cause

Heater valve is stuck or needs replacement. I doubt if it is the knob. If you coolant hasn't been flushed out for a few years ..get it flushed and replace the valve. GM uses dexcool coolant that still to this day gums up when it get old and can mess up valves and gaskets.

Heater blower works just don't get any air at all


The heater blend door actuator is not opening the door.Check for power at the actuator and if you have power at the actuator and its not working then replace the actuator.These actuators are a well known culprit of this problem.You find the actuator behind the glove box it will have a small arm on it that operates the heater blend door.

Front heater dont work but back does


Sounds like the heater control actuator/door isn't opening. Should be under the dash middle to passengers side... on the heater box. The temp switch on the dash causes the actuator to open and close the baffle/door. It may have an arm thet moves the door or it might be that the actuator itself mounts to the heater box. With vehicle running, turn the temp control and watch to see if the actuator is moving. One actuator will move to position the defrost/mix/vent/floor... usually on the drivers side middle... the other should open the heater blend door. Usually hard to get to on most vehicles. Hope this helps, Mike

My 2004 Avalanche ' heating system will not heat. No matter what the setting it either blows no air or cold air and it is 25 degrees outside so this is a problem. The engine is up to temp and I have tried...


The most likely cause is a failed blend door actuator; however I recommend a little troubleshooting. First, can you hear a clicking sound behind the dash when you turn the setting to hot? If yes, it is certainly the actuator stripping its gears. If not, check to make sure the heater hoses are both hot as they connect to the heater core at the firewall (in the engine compartment). If one or both of the hoses do not get hot, there is a blockage caused either by an air bubble or a stuck water control valve in the heater hose. If the hoses are both hot, the indication is again the blend door actuator.

Below are instructions for replacing the actuator. Look at the diagrams carefully--the big arrows point to the front of the truck and the actuator is on the side of the heater box above the outlet duct that runs to the driver's side of the floor. Also, the actuator is expensive, so I recommend you make sure it's bad and shop around a bit to get a good price. To check out the actuator, first see if you can turn the blend door by hand. If you can't turn it, maybe it's jammed. Also, reconnect the actuator after removing it and see what it does when you turn the heater to hot.

Removal & Installation
  1. Remove the floor air outlet duct extension (1) from the floor duct (2).

    1. Line up the heater/defroster valve lever with the blend door actuator cam slot.
    2. Line up the A/C valve lever with the blend door actuator cam

  2. Install the blend door actuator mounting screw to the HVAC module.
    1. Tighten the blend door actuator mounting screw to 14 inch lbs. (1.6 Nm).

  3. Connect the electrical connection at the blend door actuator (10).
  4. Install the floor air outlet duct extension (1) to the floor air duct (2).

My 2000 winstar has duel heat, the rear works, but the front does not.


This is most likely caused by a failure of the heater blend door actuator, which you can fix at home in about three hours (if you have small hands). The front heater is actually working, but the blend door is stuck shut by the failed actuator and is preventing the heat from reaching the dashboard vents. To get at the blend door actuator, you have to take the radio out. Behind it and built into the duct work of the heater is the actuator module, which you can remove and replace fairly easily.

2003 mercury grand marquis LS heater does notr blow hot air, blower blows but cold air comes what is the problem


The blend door is stuck in cold position. That usually happens because the blend door actuator has failed.

You will need to test and replace the blend door actuator.

To replace the actuator you will need to take apart the dash and remove completely the instrument panel,d isconnect the connector, remove the four screws, remove the temperature blend door actuator and replace it.

The replacement is not a job for beginners, since you have to take apart the dash to access the actuator.

Regards.
