No. The blend door actuator motor is on the top of the heater core box on the passenger side, behind the glove box
Expert:  Mr_Wrench replied 6 years ago.
Ok That is the tempature valve, I can't find any instructions for the valve inside the case, You have to pull the case and split it to install the valve assy. Do you want instructions to remove the case assy. It is a big job, book time was 8.5 hours.If that will help I can get those for you.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
OK, we must not be on the same page. "1998 S10 Chevrolet Blazer LT - 4.3 V-Tech engine, with climate control"- I have already gone through replacing the heater core. Now all I get is heat, have removed the dash again and removed the " blend door actuator ", which is a motor that sits on top of the heater core case on the left hand side, behind the glove box. I have opened the case and have found that the large gear inside is cracked, I want to replace the gear only and would like info on getting it. Thanks
Expert:  Mr_Wrench replied 6 years ago.

I really didn't get my question answered, I have been able to identify the part as a blend door actuator. I have opened it up to find a broken gear,and instead of replacing the entire unit for app. $200.00 dollars.... I would rather replace the gear. I am trying to get some info on getting the part. The units part # XXXXX XXXXX

You need to see if dealer can find it.
