I have a 2002 Chevy Impala the heat and air comes out all the vents at the same time can't direct it


After looking at the service info for the HVAC system for your vehicle , it sounds like your system lost vacuum somewhere ! The position of the mode doors determine where the air comes out at . The doors have vacuum controlled actuators , on the back of the mode switch vacuum lines are connected to it ! To check for vacuum at the switch you'll need to take HVAC control module out of the dash ! There is also a vacuum reservoir or tank under the dash near the HVAC assembly. You could look under the hood in the engine compartment an look for a disconnected vacuum hose from the engine intake manifold !

REPLACE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR ON 1996 OLDS 98


I am guessing your question is How to Replace the door lock actuator??? you will need to remove the door inner panel, BTW keep the window wound up while you are doing this repair. You will have discovered you need to remove the door handle, the window handle and deal with the door's wiring. It is not easy to get at but you will find it better with as much as possible taken out of the way,

How to I replace heater actuator for 95 corvette


It's on the passenger side of the engine. Connected to the heater hose. Of Course the old type with a vacuum line. First make sure you have vacuum to it. Repair this first. Could be the diaphragm, replace the actuator. The actuator is held in place with clamps. Cut them off if necessary. The actuator is about 4 inches in length (part of this is in the hoses), It has a diaphragm of about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, with an arm and rod to open and close the valve.

2001 lexus rx300 driver's door lock will not respond to the remote or the inside switch on the door . The other three doors work perfectly. Used to work normally, just recently stopped. I can manually...


May need new actuator. Try a slight lubricant like wd40 if that does not work. Try working switch back and forth. They usually start having problems when they get this old. You can have it replaced, but toyota /lexus is notorious for labor intensive repairs with can be costly if you take it to a dealer or very time consuming if you replace the actuator yourself.
