How do I change a blend door actuator on a 97 Ford Expedition

Lonnie. This is a hard job but heres your answer. I have done this twice myself but it was for heater core replacement the blend door is connected to the heater core assembly. Go to youtube and search "ford expedition heater core replacement". This video is outstanding the guy who made it points to all the hidden screws and bolts. It is an all day job just getting to the heater core. You have to drop the steering column and take off the whole dash to get to the door. both times i did this it took me 2 days. One day to disassemble and the next day to assemble. If you take to dealer be prepared to spend between 900-1200 dollars. The climate door only cost about 20 bucks. God bless you and keep me posted.

Heater coil on a 1999 ford expedition how hard is it to change out?

Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

How do you bypass the water heater on a 97 Ford Expedition?

With long needlw nose pliers the longer heater hose needs to be removed from the heater core by grabbing the clamp squeezing it open and turning the hose till it comes free of the core, Follow the other hose to the place that it hooks to the engine and unhook it there and put the hose that you removed first on the engine. When you get the new core, the hoses will still be good and can be used with the new core. 2) the quick and more expensive way. Stop at an autoparts store and get a hose connecter and two hose clamps. Get out your sharp knife and cut the two hoses where you can get to them, put in the connector and tighten up the clamps. 3) Another way is to get plugs and hose clamps or reuse the old ones and remove the hoses and plug them the engine will cool OK this way too. Don't forget to refill the cooling system and recheck it after driving.

1998 Expedition: 2000 Ford Expedition I smell antifreeze with heate...

If you smell antifreeze it may be 3 possibilities: 1. you may have a leaking hose/hose connector , or water pump. 2. your heater core is bad and needs replaced. Unless you know what you are doing I would highly suggest taking to dealer for heater core replacement. The dash and steering colum has to be removed to get to the heater core. This is not an easy job believe me (about-900-1200 job). If you have your heater core replaced then also replace the climate control door. This is good preventative maintenance and also a a dollar saver. I would have a pressure check run on your radiator as a first thought. All you may have is a bad hose and that can easily be replaced.
