    If you’re replacing the heater core you do not have to replace the blend door actuators unless they are defective. Keep in mind that to replace the heater core in your vehicle the dash board needs to be removed to gain access to the heater core access panel. DO NOT attempt this job unless you feel confident that you can complete the task.

    Thanks I had to replace the HVAC blend door because a hack shop took it out and kept it!
