2004 Chrysler Pacifica: door actuator..air flow..vents..blend door

This answer was rated:

I want to replace the mode door actuator in a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica. I have air flow through vents only.
I take out the kick panel and can see the 3 actuators, the other 2 being the blend door actuators. The mode door actuator (I think) is the one on top and I can't reach it.
Could you walk me through the steps on what I need to remove to get to it? I read through other forums that have the diagram on where the actuators are, but it's not that helpful for the mode door actuator replacement and the actual steps....


Here is Chrysler procedures for all 3

it is a tight squeeze

see if this helps

HI - thanks for this, it helps.

Would it be possible to get some more detail on this step:


2. remove silencer from drivers side - this is the step i'm not sure of, or what the sliencer actually is...




remove silencer from drivers side


That is the "hush panel" under the dash that hides all the wires, etc.
Some do not have, depending on Interior options

Thanks - is there any type of diagram that would point this panel out...I think I'm taking out the right panel, but there is no way I can reach the almost seems like I have to take the console off to get to it....


I have looked thru all diagrams that Chrysler shows ( very few) & cannot find a diagram of the lower Panel.
This panel covers the under part of the dash, so the wires & cables do not show & adds a quiet barrier.
It is not present on all models
It is a tight squeeze & removal of the Radio & Heat Controls "may" help you see, but not to gain access, as it is done from the side as shown

Also, this is what the manual shows for the Dash removal "with NO diagrams"
