Are the vent and blend doors same part number? I guess I could say are they interchangeable for my year of truck. Blend door seems to be fine, A/C is cold and heat is heat. Vent door is kind of hit and miss as far as floor to defrost and in between.
Do you
have the same problem?

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Interestingly, I thought they were different, but according to my information, they have the same part number. So, to the best of my information, they are the same. The item you are referring to is called the mode door actuator.

I don't know if you need this, but here is info for replacing one. It explains how they are adjusted, so I thought you may need them. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.
