Description and Operation

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.

Air Inlet Actuator



Locations

Under the right side of the instrument panel, right of the blower motor

Under the dash panel, On the HVAC housing near the Blower motor control module

Hey guys, that's a pretty nice diagram of the blower motor etc. but how can I safely get under the dashboard and remove the fan for replacement, I currently have a fair chunk of my dash disassembled but I can't figure out what the next step is to get at the fan Here's a picture of my current situation
