Yes the dash will have to be removed pending....There are more than one actuator...Some can be reached deep under the center of the dash...You will have to remove lower part of dash and use a good headlight to see it..once you see it you will have to operate the vent controls with engine running to verify the inoperative actuataor....However some vent doors will be broken or stuck shut or open ...This will cause the actuator to malfunction or make you think it is the actuator at fault....Get the new actuator before you begin looking so you will know what you are looking for...If it doesn't solve problem you will have to remove complete dash to access vent doors....A dealer scanner can verify which problem and location of your problem....Don't waste time and have it scanned rather than creating a dash removal nightmare..

SOURCE: location of blend door or

The temperature door actuator is located at the bottom of the heater housing at the center terminal. It looks like this:

To remove the actuator

  1. Remove the left and right underpanel silencer ducts.
  2. Remove the two retaining screws from the actuator which are accessible from the right side of the center stack.
  3. Remove the screw from the actuator on the left side.
  4. Pull the actuator straight down from the shaft and disconnect the electrical wire. Upon removal, matchmark the shaft position of the actuator, because the shaft on this motor is keyed.

My blows cold and I hear a clicking sound from the inside...what could it be?


There are electric motors that move blend doors in your dash board. The blend doors control the heat/cool ratios as well as the location the air will blow from. It's very common for the doors to break or the motor to fail and require replacement which can be costly.

Why 2005 pilot gets too much cabin heat even when turned off


There is blend door in vent channels under the dash of the vehicle. It blends warm and cool air in the vents depending on the temperature setting. The Blend Door is controlled by a motor called an actuator that gets its signals from the setting on the dash. When the actuator fails the blend door can't move. If it stops on hot you always get hot air.
3 possibilitys
1. Blend Door stuck.
2. Temperature control not sending signal to actuator.
3. Actuator motor gone bad.

Of the 3 possibilities the actuator motor is the most common and the easiest to fix. The part is $40-90. I don't know exactly where actuator is on the Pilot. My GMC you remove the plastic trim below the dash and its just to the left of the glove box near the 'hump'. Perhaps the part store can tell you or someone else will offer the exact location.

Once you remove the actuator you can plug it back in to the wire clip and move the temperature knob and see if it moves. When you get the new one plug it in and make sure it turns before bolting it in.

To clarify a bit. The heater is never technically turned off. The blend door determines how much it goes thru the vents.

Heater wont work, fan runs, but cant chamge temp 2001 F150 SUPERCREW 5.4


Do you hear any clicking or popping noises coming from dash area when you try to change the temperature? If so, you have either a bad blend door actuator or a broken blend door. If it's just the actuator, you can find it by following the popping noise to the location. It is under the dash close to the passenger's side of the vehicle. The actuator is easy to change once you find it. If the blend door is broken, you will have to pull the dash out and remove the air plenum from inside the dash to gain access to the blend door.

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 door....it's buried in there.
Hope this helps.

No heat Heater core is hot


If heater core is getting coolant circulating through it then you may have a temp blend door, or blend door actuator not working properly. The blend door is located in the air box under the dash, and the actuator is located on the air box. You may be able to visually check the operation while turning the temp knob, by locating the coresponding actuator on the air box and monitoring the movement. If it is moving ok and still no heat then the blend door, or lever is broken, which will require removal of the dash.
