I haven't found any DIY's for this anywhere, just the actuator. Do I have to remove the entire dash? If so is there an easy DIY for that at least? I saw some variations of cutting holes, going through the glovebox, etc. If it is not too bad to remove that dash I think I'd just rather do it that way, but I don't want to break anything in the process.

It sucks. If its the passengers side I did one on my sister in laws 2011 Ex. You have to remove the glove box, the trim and then the box itself. you will see the actuator off to the left. The first bolt is easy to get to. The second in shoved in the back. That's the one that's gonna give you the most trouble. Once you get that done its all done hill from there.

you said passenger side, is there more than one? i can hear it flapping shut when the air is turned up too high, and then its stuck on heat. it sounds like its more towards the middle but a bit on the passenger side maybe?

No just in the front. Manual temperature adjustment

Also just to make sure, I am talking about the actual blend DOOR not the actuator. I replaced the actuator twice, thats not the issue. I can hear the door physically moving

This may help thanks. Is there a factory manual somewhere that shows how to remove the dash?
