replacing recirculating accuator
I actually managed to get the actuator out by loosening the dash and the blower housing enough to get the acctuator out.
Otherwise I guess I would have to take the dash out entirely and loosen the entire heater enough to get to it.

Good job, the data base normally does say to remove the dash on some of them. Seems that you figured out how to do it a little easier. Thank you and please come again, anytime.
