The problem is most likely not just the blend door actuator, the electric motor actuators fais to move the door because the blend door warps and then it takes an excessive amount of power to move it or it will not move at all, which on this model is the case most of the time. The replacement of these parts requires the dash top be removed from the car, to do this job you need access to the factory service manuals. You can download them for a reasonable fee here. This is a 12-14 hour job at home for an amateur

It is a sticky sensor in the door latch mechanism. Spray it w/ WD-40 and follow up with a dose of silicone spray. Open/close doors several times and it should be ok. If you have a problem with 1 door the other 3 are sure to follow---DO THIS TO ALL 4 DOORS!!!!!!!!!

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.

How to remove console 97 lincoln continental


I replaced the blend door actuator (BDA)a couple of years ago. It is a challenging task, but if you are young with good eyesight, not too large, and patient, you can do it WITHOUT the enormous hassle of removing the console, which is a two man job. You need good illumination, perhaps a small mirror, possibly a camera to take some closeups of exactly how the BDA is attached, and a flexible shaft nut driver. Not too bad of a job, IF you study and plan the task with some care. I would never recommend removing the console. That is just asking for trouble and frustration, and your car will be out of commission until the console is PROPERLY connected. Good luck.

HOW TO REPLACE THE BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR


i've done this and i'm sorry you have to - it's not quick and easy. the dash must be removed. the module sits on top of the heater box. i found a Lincoln shop manual for the 97 town car on ebay that was very helpful with step by step disassembly and some pictures. i'd recommend it for sure.
good luck

Air conditioner blowing hot air


Blowing hot air when set to A/C is almost always a stuck blend door, dead blend door actuator, or a cracked or disconnected blend door actuator vacuum line. The blend door is inside the a/c ducting under the dash, but the actuator will be accessible outside the ducting.

I have to replace the ac door actuator motor behind the ash tray


are you sure it is not the temp control on the heater control panel that's bad?
please rate if this solves your issue.

A/C Electronic Blend Door Actuator The A/C electronic blend door actuator is located on the rear of the A/C evaporator housing assembly.
  • Its function is to move the A/C air temperature control door on command from the control assembly.
  • The A/C electronic blend door actuator contains a reversible electric motor and a potentiometer. The potentiometer wiper is connected to the actuator output shaft and moves with the output shaft to indicate the position of the A/C air temperature control door.
  • A 5 volt signal is applied to the ends of the potentiometer. The voltage available at the wiper indicates the position of the potentiometer. The expressed value of the actuator wiper voltage is sent to the control module and is matched with the wiper voltage of the module potentiometer. The printed circuit board then drives the actuator motor in whichever direction is necessary to make the actuator wiper voltage agree with the control module wiper voltage.
