A/C works but can't change back to heat, looks like blend door actuator not working. Took out glove box but don't see how I can take out frame to get to the actuator?
Do you
have the same problem?

Here are the diagnostics and service info on both blend doors. The metal frame normally isn't removed, you have to remove the duct behind it and then you can get to the blend actuator mounting screws. Now if you have the dual controls and neither one will change temperature then it is more likely the control head instead of the actuator. If you have access to a good scan tool it can be used to test the system without needing to tear it all apart.

Depends a lot on labor costs. Shouldn't take much over an hour to do and the part lists at $58.00 currently. So, at $125.00 figure $175.00 to $200.00 if they do diagnostics as well.

Thanks again! My brother is a retired auto mechanic so we will give it a try. The Hyundai dealer wants $1,500.00, and I am not paying that for a $50.00 dollar part!

Yes, console comes out so you can remove the panel under the center of the dash. This should get you into that spot.
