Heater problem
2002 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 81000 miles

my sons explorer, the temperature controller will move back and forth but will not activate the heat it is stuck in the cold position. I got answers on yahoo on how to fix the actuator, I am wanting to know if there is something that I can do temperary to get heat, he needs the defroster we have a lot of ice right now! Is there something that I can do to get him heat right now and get the actuator fixed later? Thank-you for your time

Unfortunately the only way of getting to the blend door is by stripping down the entire dash panel to get at the heater workings. It's a common fault on this model?
