You need to remove the panel to verify which one, and they are available at the part stores. Seek some help to install it. -

Comment 1

Comment 2
I had the same trouble. I found both on Amazon for under 100.00 I put them myself. it took some time to pull the cover off but i did not have to remove it. Just moved it far enough away to remove the two actuators. The actuators are different so make sure to put the right one in the right spot or it could break. -
Answer 3
It is the blend door in the rear right side. It is sticking or the actuator is stripped out. -
