First, what is the problem that you need to replace the actuator? Is the air flow from the vents not changing? If this is the problem, the actuator is inside the venting behind the control panel and is difficult to get to but is possible. Follow the hoses on back of temp controls to the actuator. There should be 2 small bolt screws to remove to change out actuator.
If this is for something else, let me know

My 2001 buick century blows warm air on drivers side and cold air on passenger side could the problem be that the flapper is stuck.


The electric control actuator more then likely ! Do you hear any clicking come from behind the instrument panel . These actuators have plastic gears inside and they break , strip etc... Can also set DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes to set in the HVAC - control panel (module ) A scan tool used to check engine codes can't read these codes . Need a factory scan tool or professional grade .
DTC B0361
The HVAC control module receives a left air temperature actuator position signal from the left air temperature actuator. The left air temperature actuator position sensor is a potentiometer that is tied to a 5 volt reference source. The variable output from the potentiometer feeds back a position signal to a pull-up resistor located in the HVAC control module. This signal is used to determine the necessary drive signal to the left air temperature actuator motor to provide the proper air mix door position. This value is stored in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM) portion of the HVAC control module.
DTC B0363
Left air temperature actuator signal circuit stays at 4.5 volts or higher.

2000 buick century, where is the thermostat located. and what level should the antifreeze be? the temp guage on dash is staying on the c side what may be the problem?


The thermostat is in a housing on the engine. It's located where the lower radiator hose attaches to the engine. The coolant level should be right near the top of the radiator when you remove the cap, and the overflow canister should be filled to the indicated line (there are markings on the canister). If your gauge stays on cold, you may have a faulty coolant temperature sensor. If it will get to normal operating temperature while sitting still, but starts cooling down when you drive, you have a thermostat failure - it's stuck open, and will need replacement.

2000 buick century blowing hot air on one side and cold air on other side


The temperature actuator has gone bad. You will need to replace and have it recalibrated. You could try and disconnect the battery for a few hours and see if it will reset it's self. But you will be in the same boat before too long. And will eventually need to replace it.
