how to replace blend door actuator?
Hello my girlfriend's cobalt is making a ticking noise behind the glove box every time the car is started. Several mechanics have diagnosed this as the blend door actuator, and I've had this same problem with my Bravada, so I'd have to agree. Anyone know how to go about replacing this? The dealer wants $250 because they say the dash needs to be removed. On my bravada, you could reach up behind the glove box and get to it. I don't think that's possible with the cobalt.
Also, anyone know if anything special needs to be done after plugging it in to make it work right? Does it need to be "calibrated" or anything?
It's a 2006 LS coupe if that matters. I wish GM would have stayed away from automated climate controls...
