Second opinion] 2011 Taurus...

Second opinion] 2011 Taurus SEL-- no heat on passenger side. Trying to replace the passenger side actuator but having a hard time getting to it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

All that is fine.. I get good heat on the driver's side.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Taurus yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix it myself. Disconnected the battery for 10 minutes. Tried cycling on/off/heat/ac. Removed the glove box to find the actuator.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Do I have to remove the dash or is ther an easier way to replace the actuator?

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.
