Second opinion] I have a 2003 ford f150 4x2 and have no heat. The radiator has been flushed and still no heat. I think it is the blend door. So how can i manually turn the door so i can have heat?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

I have checked the thermostat and coolant level and everything is normal.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i am i have taken off the cover thats on the hump and i can see the actuator but i don't know how to get to the door.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that about does it.

At operating temp with the heat and blower on, are the heater core hoses hot near 150-190 degrees?
