We had the same problem with ours. It was a limo and it took me about 6 hours to get the blend door motor in and out. It made a clicking noise. I did have to take out the glove compartment and most of the plastic under the dash. you will probably need to be pretty inovative with your tools. find the smallest 5.5mm driver you can find. also they do make stubby open end wrenches that are pretty nice to have. skinny arms and alot of tools should do the job. since you cant fit an entire torx screwdriver you are going to have to try a combo wrench and a torx bit like you find on a drill. also you can remove the raido for more room.(to stick another hand under the dash.) Hopefully this helps. Guido

No such luck. Pull the dash unit out because the blend door actuator sits square under the windshield frame in the center of the car. Have a good set of metrics handy, and if I remember you need a 5.5 mm shallow. I also seem to remember some torks (.) bits. They are a real pain in the rear, about a 12 hour job flat rate. They are no fun at all. The whole car is built around the actuator. Good luck.

Air Temperature Control Blend
Door Failure No Heat
In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.
