The single zone blend door actuator is located on the driver side end of the heater-A/C housing unit, close to the dash panel.

In the dual zone system, a second separate blend door actuator is also located on the driver side end of the heater-A/C housing unit close to the instrument panel.

The single recirculation door actuator is located on the passenger side end of the heater-A/C housing unit, on the bottom of the lower intake air housing.

The single mode door actuator is located on the driver side end of the heater-A/C housing unit, close to the top of the distribution housing.

Sorry do not have a picture. If it is cold on the right side and not cold on the left. And the right side is still not as cold as t should be it may not be a blend door problem. If you want accurate repair help we need to talk.
