How do I replace the blend door?

Can locate where it's at. Wondering if it's something I can do myself or am I better off letting a professional do it?

The blend door is located right over the cabin air filter. If you cycle the selector control from max ac to outside air you can fee/see it moving (after you drop the glove box door).
The door is parallel to the glove box, and you should be able to see it opening and closing, it should close securely in both positions. Try adjusting the temperature selector knob to see if the door opens part way.
I believe that to change/repair the door you need to remove the heater box (MAJOR JOB involving removing both front seats and the entire dash crash pad, it will probably be a 8 to 10 hour job, because you have to drain the cooling system and disconnect the a/c lines and the heater hoses.
Sorry, but there is no easy way to do it (take it to a dealer unless you are really handy and have all the tools etc).

How do I get to the rear blend door in my 2004 Durango?

Hi Denny, The blend flaps are usually incorporated into the main climate control system. This is not an easy job for a novice because very often you will need to dismantle the instrument panel and dash board to get to the controls. Let me know if you want to go ahead and we'll see where we get to together? Regards John

Afternnon, just wondering about the best way to locate the blend doors in the hvac box without ripping out the dash on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee. Thanks in advance. Duane

y9ou can gain access to the driver side blend door actuator by removing the glove box. The actuator will be in the left corner of the glove box opening. If you remove the actuator you will be able to turn the pin. If you can turn it 360 degrees the blend door is broke.

If your lucky its only the drivers side. If you get the repair kit from chrysler it will come with instructions with pictures on how to replace the blend door without pulling the HVAC unit/Dash. If the passenger side is broken the HVAC unit will need to be removed.

Heater treater (google them) also have a metal blend door replacement and instructions online on how to replace them without pulling the HVAC housing.

My 01 chevy venture blend door acuator is not working. Is there a way to manually change it when the summer gets here? The ac worked just fine this last summer but I had no heat. The shop manually changed...

Your blend door in the Venture is on the driver side of the van, under the dash just above your right knee at the side of your plenum. You will see a white arm that will move to adjust the blend door. The blend door actuator sits on top of the plenum held down with 3 screws. If you did not want to diagnose the problem you could just wire it in place for summer or winter. Personally I would try and diagnose the problem. Hope this helps.

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.

The heating and air works but doesn't blow hot or cold air there is a part under the dash board that is missing some kind of valve,could you please help me with this

There is a blend door that is know to give problems. Sometimes the blend door itself will break but there is also a blend door actuator that can fail. The blend door actuator is located behind the dash...kinda behind the temperature control knob and is a pretty easy fix if you're able to hang upside down under your dash for about 20 minutes. The actuator costs around $50.
I've never replaced the blend door itself, but have read up on it when I thought that might be the problem. Let's just say the part is cheaper but clear your weekend. I think step one of building a Taurus is the blend's buried in there.
Hope this helps.
