how to replace blend door actuator on 2000 Buick LeSabre

HVAC System - Manual

The HVAC system uses three electric actuators to adjust temperature and air distribution.
The actuators are:

* The temperature air mix actuator.
* The mode actuator.
* The air inlet actuator.

The actuators are specifically designed for the right and left side of the heater and the A/C module. When servicing the actuator, ensure that you replace the actuator with the correct service part for the position being serviced.

The reversible DC motor in the actuator operates the valve within the HVAC module.

The actuators are controlled through the inputs from the heater and A/C control.
