There are 4 heat/ac...

There are 4 heat/ac actuators on my 2008 navigator. I have replaced the one behind the radio but that is not the one that is the problem cause I have the same noise and the ac and heat does not operate so I have removed the instrument panel thinking I could access the actuator over the steering column. Nope big bars and big wire cluster. Thought I could just remove the drivers side dashboard but doesn’t look like it. Any suggestions

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

That was first. I can take out fuse and noise stops but then it doesn’t actuate

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

Read above please yes I am fixing by myself

Sorry had to do some other business. No trying to replace the 19E616A I think that is the one that is faulty

That is the mode door actuator. you get it from under the dash on the drivers side.

Number one screen shot is not my vehicle. I do not have a tray I think I would have to remove the plastic covering the airbag on passenger side of the dash
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The blend actuator under the dash, but not the one behind the radio, is not blending the heat and air conditioning. I get heat on the drivers side and cool on the passenger side. 2008 Lincoln Navigator vin # 5LMFU285XBLJ10390

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.

BRNew Jersey
