When selecting defrost, only a small amount of air moves thru, nothing thru the floor. All air comes out of the vents including heat. Anyone know of the solution for this or how to repair w/o ripping out the dash to repair or replace the blend door actuators?

    Reverse procdure to install.

    Now, once the unit is removed the system can be tested with a mityvac to be 100% sure it is the problem. That is where you need skills. Or a mechanic!
