OK, I don't want to rain on anyone's parade here, but the answer below is a bit simplified. YES, if you already have access to or have the 'instrument panel' (read: DASH) out of the vehicle, the answer below is correct. The reality here is that this is a major repair by standards of the usual/general garage/DIY/home mechanic. In order to change this particular actuator, the dash of the vehicle must be removed. I qualify that by saying that, of course, as a professional shop, we do not actually take the entire dash out (as manuals 'suggest'), but it does, in fact, involve removing the dash from its mouting location, which includes moving the steering column and many, many other related parts (these being plugs, lines, tubes, vaccuum lines... and let us not forget: the DREADED- "AIRBAG" things! [wouldn't you hate to have one of those go off while you were working or just finished working? Not only could you be hurt or killed, but the replacement cost alone is about two grand... I'll let YOU decide). At any rate, if you were to read a 'manual' about replacing this actuator instead of actually having it done it yourself several hundred time, the answer below is what you would find. One more thing: In many cases of THIS PARTICULAR VEHCILE, the actuator goes nuts and actually BREAKS the door hinge which is located inside of the evaporator case (which, unfortunately involves additional labor to remove and replace). Now, I'm not saying this is YOUR case, but if it is, replacing the actuator alone will nto solve your problem (is the A/C making a 'clicking' noise after you start the car?). Good luck. Let us know if you need more help.
