Can I fix myself? I heard it was over $900 to fix if you go to the Dealer and it is not covered under the Powertrain warranty is that true? It seems to be a pretty common problem. Not sure why there wasn't a recall from Chrysler on this issue. I'm thinking I can unplug it to stop the noise if I can't afford $900 to fix.

I meant the Re circulation door. Typo above.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The recirculation door actuator would not be covered by a powertrain warranty because it isn't part of the powertrain.

Whether or not you can repair it yourself depends on your personal ability and comfort level and what you have for tools. Replacing the recirc actuator just requires removing the glovebox, unplugging the actuator and removing it's screws and shouldn't take more than an hour with moderate skills.
