Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
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!!!!!!!!!

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.
