Intermittantly, hot air comes thru driver's side when all selectors are off. This can happen when A/C is on also, but passenger side is cold. No codes come up on computer when checked. Replaced driver's side actuator door once with an after-market product. It's still doing it. Temp fixes include turning off engine and restarting; turn knob to defrost to redirect air; and recently found that pressing the recirc button helps too while driving. Does the driver's actuator door need to be replaced again? Does it need to be a GM part?
