Is it possible to remove and install a passenger side heat

Customer Question

Is it possible to remove and install a passenger side heat actuator or temperature acutator. I have heard it can be done with the glovebox removed. If so, what tools would I need?
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?
Customer: No, I recently had the water pump replaced. Coolant level is fine. Driver and rear heat work fine. Could something be airlocked?
JA: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?
Customer: 2006 DTS
JA: Are you fixing your DTS yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I took the glovebox and lower out, but that's it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just need to know how to remove and replace this part if in fact that is my problem, and most of the chatting on the internet tells me that is the problem. Unless it's something from the replacement of the water pump.

ok, yes it can be done.

have you ever removed a dash board assembly before??? it is a big job. it pays around 9 hours in a shop for this operation.

attached is the procedure.


Customer: replied 10 months ago.
my question is, can it be done thru the glove box opening? I want to do this without the removal of the dash board. Is it possible?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I don't want to know how to take the dash board out, I want to know is it can be done without removing the dash board?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There is no need to speak to you if this can't be done.
Expert:  roybelding replied 10 months ago.

the simple answer is no. if it was that easy, thats what I would have posted. it is only accessible with the dash board removed from the car.
