Remove the squirrel cage from the carrier in the engine compartment. You can reach in and feel it. Those were prone to break on rangers and explorers (Don't change from dash, floor, defrost etc. with the fan on high). If you take it to a dealership the will charge you 5.5 hours to change it. If you feel brave you can change it with a crow bar though said squirrel cage opening. prying up and sliding new blend door in place. You have to purchase a new carrier to get the blend door.

This is the hard way. The easy way is the HeaterTreater kit at www.heatertreater.net or you can check my other postings on this forum for additional information.

There isn't one. There'll be a fuse for the HVAC blower, but the heater itself doesn't use electricity (other than the blower fan). That year Ranger should have cables going to the blend door, so there won't be electricity there.

The blend door sits vertically in the heater box behind the glove box. If you fully open the glove box, you can see the actuator motor on top of the heater box in the upper left hand corner. On the bottom of the box is a "pedestal" that is the bottom axle point for the blend door. The door axis is between the motor axle and the pedestal. If you are having issues with a Ford Ranger blend door, you can find diagnostic procedures with pictures and a cheap easy solution to the problem at HeaterTreater www.heatertreater.net, or follow the Google ads on this site. cgallen

It sounds like the heater blend door is not working. Unfortunately to gain access to the blend door for repair or replacement requires removal of the entire dash assembly. Big Job. I would suggest purchasing a shop manual for that vehicle if you intend on doing this job yourself.

The heater blend door is not run by vacuum. It is run by an electric actuator.
