All other aspects of the A/C are working and I do not hear a clicking noise but the re-circulation function is not working on the A/C. The light for the re-circulation comes on when the button is pressed but fresh air continues to flow through the unit.
I have found a purchased a Blend door actuator that says; Only fit for Recirculation Actuator; Not fit for Temperature and Mode Actuator.
But I can't find where it is located on the vehicle. The Temperature/Mode actuator appears to be located under and behind the glove box but I don't know where to look for this "recirc-actuator"
Any info or diagrams are appreciated.

They call this actuator the air inlet control servo motor and it is behind the glove box.

I am attaching the location and replacement process below.

Please run through this material and let us know if you have other questions. Thanks.

The loud clicking noise I've seen others post about started on my vehicle yesterday so that's new for me but the HVAC unit is still mounted in the vehicle so I can't access the part but I can see it now. Thanks to this schematic. I'll have to figure out the rest. It looks like the unit where the blower motor is mounted needs to come down. Somehow.

Yes. You are correct that the blower motor will most likely have to come out. There should be 3 screws holding it in. Take a look at the attached below.

The servo motor, on this model, is mounted to the blower motor housing unit, between the firewall and top backside of the blower motor housing (case?) Unit so even removing the 3 screws and dropping the blower motor, the housing/case is still in the way. I'm at a loss. I'm giving up on it. It may just stay broke. I can't afford to pay for a dash removal and I'm not going to tackle a dash removal. Thanks for trying.
