27443M is working, I can visually see it moving and it chooses WHERE the blower blows.
I need to know which one of them is choosing driver side temperature.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok. So, this is viewed from firewall side? And this is the one that is easiest to see from passenger side footwell?

The pic I sent you is US spec, is your steering wheel on the right or left side of the truck when sitting in it?

I took it away, and looks like the actuator dont move when I adjust temperature. And the shaft is visible and I can change blow to driverside, thought engine is cold. But looks like I got it now. Thanks.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Ok and thanks. I should have asked in the first place.... How do you get paid on this?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
If I can ask another question? Now the dashboard bottom/consoles are open, due my wrong way to reach the actuator (before I asked help from you) it might be good time to change the knob lights. The three big heater knobs are gone dark, are there changeable bulbs? And what is the easiest way to change them? Also the radio setup which is Nissan OEM setup, has gone dark from the left side. Is there bulb? And what is easiest way to change them?

Sorry to say, I don't see any replaceable bulbs in the system. They appear to be LED bulbs soldered right into the circuit board.

The switches are also part of the control board from what I can see. There aren't any instructions for replacements.

As for the radio, I know that's inside the radio and LED
