Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
The flap that directs the cabin air to the floor, vent or defrost is broken. The actuator that controls the flap works, but the flap itself is broken ( shaft the flap is on is broken) need to know part to order and how to get to it to fix it
I go to the dealer spares department when I have a problem like this and have them show me a picture of the vent system in the car and I point to the bit that I want. Saves a lot of time and energy when you can point to the bit As to how to replace it the break down will also show the area and you can see if there are clips or what to get the bit replaced.

SOURCE: There is no air flow
You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!
Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!
The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!
I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!
Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!
3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!
But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!
