Hello, I am John, a Ford dealer technician.

I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.


Yes it sounds like the blend door actuator that is bad. It is pretty easy to replace, you just remove the radio and the blend door motor is about 8 inches back. Remove the 4 8mm bolts and its out. If you take this to a shop they will probably charge between $100 and $150.


I hope this answer has been helpful to you! If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

If this answer has been helpful please accept so I can recieve payment. Feedback is very

important to me so please leave accurate feedback for others to see my job performance.


Thank you,


JustAnswer Expert

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
