Default 04 C\K - Temperature Valve Actuator Replacement

This is in response to a PM I received, but I am posting it here for others to see

Quote:
I have an 04 Silverado LS 5.3L dual climate control (not digital). The driver's side actuator for the blend door started "clicking" it has since stopped and now I have very hot air coming out of the vents. The passenger side works fine. I have been digging all over the internet to find diagrams but have had no success. I have heard that the actuator have plastic gears in them that easily strip out. Would it be possible to give me an idea how hard this will be to replace? Do I have to pull the dash? I saw your calibration steps to listed for the Uplander do I have to perform a calibration (w/o a scan tool) on my truck?

Sounds like the actuator has been stripped. It is pretty easy to change, and calibrating it does not need a scan tool. I'll post instructions with pics

Actuator Recalibration

When replacing the HVAC control module it will be necessary to allow the HVAC control module to perform a calibration process. When installing the HVAC control module be sure to perform the following:

Important: Do not adjust any controls on the HVAC control module while the HVAC control module is self-calibrating. If interrupted, improper HVAC performance will result.
  1. Place the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. Disconnect the scan tool.
  3. Install the HVAC control module.
  4. Connect all previously disconnected components.
  5. Start the vehicle.
  6. Wait 40 seconds for the HVAC control module to self-calibrate.
  7. Verify that no DTCs have set as current DTCs.

The I\P insulator panel is the first thing you see when you stick your head under the dash.

The right side actuator require the removal of the entire dash down to the heater box. Huge job if you're up for it
