james leatherman: I reached my hand in without being able to see, felt the bumping, touched the lever, flipped it down , and bam!, HEAT! Very easy to do, the lever has no power, so it doesn't pinch you or hurt, in fact it has the power of a new born, so if your a girl, don't worry it doesn't hurt. In fact small hands will work better. Go over the big group of wires, not thru them. Over then down, youll feel it, have the heater going while you do it, makes it easier to find. Good luck all.
ronofnc: turn the knob on the far right from ac to vent and the heat will work good!
Jeremy Savage: Thanks so much for this video. I was getting the clicking in the dash and it stopped producing heat. Went in behind the glove box as shown here and fixed it in 30 seconds on my 2005 Explorer XLT.
john saint: I have the same problem, but I't too dark to see what you're doing. should have used a flashlight.
Summer S: If you have the Eddie Bauer edition, search for this video: "How to fix the heater in a 2006 ford explorer". Robert, this is a great starting point, but I couldn't find the flap due to my different model. I struggled for a while in the glove box area but found a video that told me to remove the panel to the left/below the glove box... so just wanted to let other viewers know in case they have the Eddie Bauer edition.
Tammy Martinez: From the video it was a little hard see where the actuator was located but I put my hand back near the sound and found the valve and as soon as I moved it and turned the car on there as heat.. I really hope it's working in the morning cause it's cold in Tennessee this time of year.thanks sooooooooooooo much.
Ted Bundy: I tried this in my 2004 Explorer it worked, the heat came on but when I started the car again it started clicking again and no heat. Anybody else have this problem??
Reg S: I was having this problem in my 2003 Explorer XLT and feared I would have to take the car in because winter is coming and I need heat in the car .. I did what you said and in searching around a little bit with my hands I was able to feel the lever to flip to open the heat ducts .. thank you . you have save me from spending money I really didn't have
APRIL GILBERT: Great video thanks for sharing
Brad Allen: HEY EVERYONE! often times the blend door is broken and not the motor, so if this doesn't fix your problem there is a site called heater treater, look it up.
bluphii: this is bad ass!!! i actually paid the dealer 789.00 before... and plan on doing the next 1 myself b/c i need it again but because my winter is only 3 weeks in FL i may just do this.....save myself the labor heartache
Robert B Millar: Camera is useless, cannot see anything at all
Jeff Robertson: I couldn't see a damn thing in the dark!
Zack Dean: How about grand marquis?
willmacneill: The gear that breaks inside the actuator is now available, FYI:
Tony Lay: is it the same for a ranger? I turn on the a/c and after a short time, it kicks off and gets hot. also when I have the climate control on the middle between hot and cold, it still gets raging hot. even when i turn all the way to cool
Ken Martin: I was able to purchase the temp blend door actuator $35.00 and it took two hours ten minutes from start to finish. Your method works but I live in the North East U.S. and I don't feel like taking my glove box out every time I need to change temp. Thanks!
Laken Lawless: will this work for a 99 expidition XLT and if so would i have to do it everytime i start my vehicle and does it damange anything doing it that way
andersonktype: Thanks, worked great!
Irish2u: you could of used a flash light because one could not see anything you were doing , sad video
