02 Ford Explorer Heat Blend Door Actuator Simple Fix - No Tools Needed




What do you think about this video?

broomballusba12: I want to thank you folks for the support on the video. I will be making a few new videos shortly on the Ford Explorer, The Ford Expedition, and the newest car to the family a 1983 Porsche 944.

Zarthus Maximus: I can't even see where you were putting your hands. Very confused.

Lizzie McVeigh: I'll give this a shot. Hopefully it works for the '06. When I turn the heat I get this clicking sound and just regular air. 

broomballusba12: The flap is along the side, near the metal bar. Don't force anything, the flap is approx 1" x 2"

broomballusba12: Here is a complete video of the correct and proper way to fix this problem. I did not make this video, however the owner did send this to me. This would take approx 2 hrs to complete should you decide to do this yourself. http://youtu.be/BERmZRDfqPw

My Farmer Bill: It would help if I could see what you're doing

Erick Daza Quiterio: Man thank You so much for this info!!! It truly helped me out and saved me those $80 thank You!!!!

jannet cardozo: Hi already felt the flap , but I don't know if I should to pressing all the eay down or all the way up... im confused thanx

Kelli Simmons: I reached in my glove box to find the door. I don't know if I moved it or not, but the clicking stopped just by reaching my hand in. My problem is that I still do not have any heat and since the clicking stopped, I cannot find the door. Any suggestions?

FuPayme365: Will this wrk on a 1998 Ford expedition Eddie Bauer?? exact same heat and cold problems... heat actually wrks in the rear but not in front for the driver and passenger.. plz help

Douglas Smith: Thanks for the good tip. This would especially work well if you are on a road trip and the actuator fails and you need to continue the trip with both ac and heat. Also many times its not the job of tearing into the rig as much as it is having the total block of time available to do it. Thanks.

Robin Tennant: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. It is freezing here in Atlanta today and I have to drive an hour and a half one way to pick up my son from school today. Thanks to your video and the comments below, I won't be freezing. P.S. I am also a woman and was able to do it myself. Woo weeee!

Ottumwa Iowa: I got lost in the noise.

Scottie Jaii: Thank you SOOOOO much for this video! I was about to spend 375.00 at a local auto shop to have this problem fixed, but something in my spirit told me to search Youtube for solutions first. Your video REALLY WORKS! I just went out to my truck and fixed the problem in less than 5 minutes! I really appreciate this upload :)

Shay Woods: I tried this last night and it worked perfectly. I took the car for a spend around the block, on the way back I notice something was leaking. Any idea what it could have been????

Jennifer Lewis: Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! I just watched your video and completed the "costly" task myself! Went out on my lunch break and followed your guides, and fixed it! I had a little more difficulty, not sure if it's bc mine is a 2004, but there was a black manifold blocking most of it, and mine was towards the bottom more. Barely reached it with one middle finger, and had almost given up. It was 11 degrees this morning in Atlanta, needless to say, I couldn't take it any more. I had called a shop, and he quoted me about $250 , depending on how deep it was in my dashboard. lol. Well, my sir, Daddy would be proud. Thanks again!

Ryhan Stewart: Thanks. I have a different issue. My heater and cold works but the air only blows through when I set the speed of blower to max (4). Is there any fast way to fix that switch to work on the other settings. Thanks

Scott Sobkowicz: You are a genius! Can't thank you enough. Was freezing my ass off and within minutes you made my day/week/month. Happy New Year to you! 

ATAHUALPA867: Happy Sunday explorers drivers. I finnally got mind into this and done. Took me 10 minutes and got heat. Thanks so much for the posting .I saved money and now will use it for fixing tire valve. Worse was to try to explain to the wife what I was gonna do she got inquisite and took me longer to convince her than to fix. 

Jim Devitt: Thanks, simple and done. You're the best

Houstonbby: I'm having this problem on my ford explorer. What exactly did u do? What flap did u move? 

Wasnt Mee: Fandamntastic video Sir! Got through the entire replacement on the actuator to realize the shaft was wrong. :(. So I came across your video and the fix was exactly like he says. No magic to it. Even easier without the camera as he says. Listen for the click to find the lever. And just like that you got your heat.

ATAHUALPA867: sir, thanks for the video , i tried today and can't find it. any suggestions ? do i take the whole panel out. How does it loook?

Marc Brown: Saved my marriage!! Thank you! it is -7 here today in Colorado, and I have been lazy about doing the real fix. It found this sweet, 4 second fix vidoe. Question, how long about will this fix stay warm?

brothaman75159: You are a genius. 

richscary: You sire are a freaking GENIUS!!! Looking forward to more of your videos! Thanks!

TOMMY KING: This does Not Work on a 2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. Only thing on that side is 2 two vacuum motors that goes to flaps for upper and lower air flow...

EYE DOC: Tried it - worked great - took about 15 minutes. Thanks!

Frank McCann: My blend door quit a couple years ago and I found that lever. However, I put a wire tie on it (kind of difficult but worth it, lay upside down and get your head under there enough to see it just long enough to get the wire tie on) and ran the tail out between the crack in the plastic. Now I just have to pull on the end of the wire tie when I want to switch it to heat. Seems to flop back to cool easily when I put the control on cold. Almost invisible and easy to use.

Stephen Contreras: This dude is a genuis.

fastdrive55: Hm, so you have to do this each you wanna switch that crap door :-(

Mike Dallo: Thanks for the video! I managed to get a finger right on the piece inside that's making the noise - it felt like a little heartbeat. Wasn't sure if it was an actual flap, I guess it was? I was trying to get my heat back, but it seemed like it was already all the way up, so I tried doing down, and it fell all the way out of my reach, but now my A/C is working again. Did I do it right? How would I be able to reach it again to get my heat going?

Scott Wiedemann: nothing makes me feel all "warm and fuzzy" like being warm and saving money....you did both. many thanks from 1 cheapskate to another

Brent Bonnell: Will this work on a 2004 explorer? I'm looking in that area but I don't see a plastic flap.

puftguy1: .....and just think..... if Ford would have spent just a few lousy cent more, they could have built this to never break...but because of their greed, this is the result..... I paid almost 65 THOUSAND dollars for my Town Car and a lot of its parts just sit still in my garage and rot then break !!!... after buying mostly ALL Ford cars in my past...i'll never EVER buy another Ford product. thanx FORD MOTOR COMPANY WHERE QUALITY IS JOB 1 ..... YEAH RIGHT !!!...... THANX FOR THE POST ANYWAY !!

zackaryjames .: Man you just saved me $650 lol

KnightBlazer28: Just wanted to give a big THANKS. I just tried this and my heat kicked on instantly.

kelly herrera: Hi can I do this to if my cold air doesn't come out?

chris larson: Extremely helpful! You, sir, are a true American. May karma reward you accordingly.

Shalisha A. Kennedy: Need help PLEASE! Let me start out by saying I know nothing really about cars. I need heat and can't afford a relax bill. Getting ready to move to a colder state in a couple of days. I think I've found the flap, but regardless of which way i flip it, it still blows out cold. What am I doing wrong? I have a 2006 Ford Explorer. Thank you in advance

tige reese: Great Having the same problem Life saver!!!!!!

Glenn D: I watched the video you saved me a lot of money or time thanks

SixFigure Ano: thank you so much! i have been without heat in my 04 explorer for 2 years now and its been horrible but thanks to your video i now have heat! Only took about 30 minutes to fix! i live in florida so i dont need it often but right now its pretty chilly and my late night hot box sessions are miserable because of the cold. Now i can smoke at night in my car in peace and warmth lol thank you!

Tdubbzskis: Dude, you are a great story teller, and should be a comedian! Anyway, my heat on my 03 explorer went out again this morning. It went out year and a half ago and I had already purchased the $65 part and performed the fix once, and I'm not about to drop another $65 bucks.. I'm cheap too man... but I have no wife to call me the other names. Good talk.

Billy Whyde: 2007 Sport Trac remove the lower pop off panel( ON PASSENGER SIDE) push pin pull out towards side and slide panel out , listen for click locate the sound place hand of the lever. turn vehicle off turn heat control unit for season (hot or cold) if for heat pull down on the lever if for col AC pus lever up towards vertical. replace panel start and drive after the first time you can do it very quickly. NOTE TELL EVERYONE NOT TO USE THE CONTROL FOR TEMP, USE BLOWER OR WINDOWS TO COMPENSATE, IF YOU MOVE THE TEMP CONTROL SWITCH IT MAY ALLOW FOR THE CHEAP NYLON GEAR TO THROW IT OUT OF POSITION AND REPEAT OF THE FIX IS NEEDED AGAIN..

Richard Thomas: I am sitting here LMAO, I was looking at a repair bill of $617.....followed your directions and low and behold....HEAT. Thanks for the video instructions. It did not cost me a penny. It took time to locate the flap to flip down, but other than that "piece of cake"

Edna Patino: thanks for the helpful hint. weather in north texas changes so frequently that this was a quick fix to tide me over until i could replace the motor. to replace the actuator motor, i highly recommend heatertreater.net, redhouseon7th.com and broomballusba12’s YouTube video. i fixed mine today and it works perfectly!

Tammy Dressel: Thank you. Worked like a charm.
