Question about 1996 Buick Park Avenue
Cools on drivers side, heats on passenger..Tight corners inside and on tight budget. thanks, Tom
Is this with the air conditioner running? Does this have dual controls? If you have dual controls and this is with A/C running, your system is under charged. There is no easy fix if mode control valve is bad. First step is disable air bag. Second step is completely remove the dash. Good Luck!

sounds like the drivers temp door actuator is not working should be located on the drivers side of the air box down by the gas pedal or center dash area.

Behind the glove box you will see the heater box. On top of the heater box you will see a set of wires going to a small controller box that has an arm on it. It is probably not working and you can only by them at the dealer. It is the dual climate controller and cost approx. $100.

Actuator motors either get a tear in the rubber or a hose is broken and not letting vacuum assist in its opening.
You can try moving the lever by hand and see if the air gets colder on the bad side.

Yes. Put a jack under the motor and remove 3 bolts from side of engine and the long center pivot bolt in mount and the 2 bolts that go top down into the frame and loosen the 2 bolts below mount. Jack up the motor until you can separate the mount, leaving the engine side in and removing the frame side. The engine side can be moved out of the way without completely removing.
