03 tahoe pass side blend door actuator- replace

03 tahoe on Mon June 21, 2010 11:12 AM User is offline

Year: 2003
Make: chevrolet
Model: tahoe z71
Engine Size: 5.3l
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Country of Origin: United States


My tahoe is blowing hot air out of the passenger vents. I'm pretty sure I need to replace the actuator. Does anyone know the exact location (03 Tahoe z71-auto climate control) and the procedure for replacing it? Is this an easy job? Where is the best place to pick one up? How much would a tech charge generally? Thanks for your thoughts.

The exact location of the blend door is behind the center console. It is a job to do. Going to a shop, they would charge you appx. 4.5 hours for the right one. Only 1.0 hour for the left though.

Air Temperature Actuator Replacement - Right
Removal Procedure
Remove the I/P carrier.
Disconnect the electrical connector (4) from the right air temperature actuator (3).
Remove the screws from the right air temperature actuator (3).
Remove the right air temperature actuator (3) from the HVAC module assembly (2).

Installation Procedure
Install the right air temperature actuator (3) from the HVAC module assembly (2).
Install the screws to the right air temperature actuator (3)
Tighten the screws to 2 N.m (18 lb in).
Connect the electrical connector to the right air temperature actuator.
Install the I/P carrier.
Reprogram the air temperature actuator.

Your best bet for buying it is from the dealership. It is probably the only place you can get it. I would recommend getting a dealer part and having a qualified technician install it if you don't feel comfortable doing it.
