Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi and thank you for the question. I'm sorry to hear you are having this issue. From what you are describing, the mode door actuator is binding. Hopefully it not the actual door in the HVAC case. This is normally not the case. It's usually the actuator binding. I will look up some procedures on how to replace it. I'll be right back with you ok?
Yes, that is precisely what is occuring. I found the replacement diagram and my worst fears were confirmed. Unfortunately, in order the even get to this actuator and test it or replace it, the entire dash assembly will need to be removed. This is a very large job even for a professional.
I would estimate 8-10 hours of labor. Meaning, well over $1000 dollars depending on where the repairs are performed.
Not particularly special tools, but a lot of them unfortunately. I tried to connect to your phone call request, however, it stated the payment failed...?
You're welcome. Please let me know if I may help you in the future.
