Hello,

Since the actuator actually has a gear, it will require you to turn the gear on the actuator door. The issue is it might not stay in that position. Unless something forces it to stay in a certain position, as soon as the air gets turned on it can switch position.

Here is a helpful guide:

I have attached diagrams for the blend door actuator below.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
