Been researching on having no defrost or floor air. My blend door actuator behind glove box was clicking so replacing that part but I also noticed that there are two more under dash on driver side. I have air conditioning and heat, but no floor or defrost. Does anyone know if which actuator I need to change out?

Thanks for the information. I actually dove into it yesterday pulled the dash and got it replaced. Got it done in a little over four hours but probably could have been done in two or three if really staying after it. My question now is I started driving this morning and speedometer sits at 25 mph when I am not moving. It seems to work is there a way to get it back to 0?

Nice to hear you got it fixed, for your new question please start a new thread so this one does not get diluted with different info.

Thanks, Ken
