Yes, there is one on each side even though it is single control, I guess they have one set up for both, anyway, here are the locations of both passengers and drivers' side and how to change them out. Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem. Use 2CarPros anytime, we are here to help. Please tell a friend.

I am attaching the info from the manual on this but if this is a single zone system then we need to find out for sure that the A/C system is okay.

It is odd that you will have different temperatures side to side on single zone systems.

So, let's just check the pressure when the compressor is on, and A/C is on.

Once we confirm the A/C is properly working then I am attaching the info on the actuators.

It is unclear if this is a dual or single zone but there is a driver and passenger side listed. So, if there are actuators for each side then this is likely the issue.

Please see the info from the manual below that will help with this.

Thanks

I’m showing the driver's side HVAC I pulled out, couldn’t get the housing off. I ordered the motor part but obviously this is made as 1 unit. Was afraid I would break it. I haven’t checked the passenger side for actuator because the driver's side is the one not cooling enough. I found one exact match from rock auto I’m assuming it comes as 1 unit. My local auto parts couldn't get it said sometimes Hyundai parts are accessible for them said they never seen this housing before. I have no bottom air or defrost but have air out vents all is well and cool on passenger side this is for drivers should I replace it?

Yep. That looks like it. If you look closely at the picture, then it does look like what you are seeing.

However, if the driver's side is where the issue is then yes that is the side that you will want to repair.

Let us know how this turns out.
