Where did you get your actuator? At GM dealer or a yard or other?
Indeed, I got the ECC head, HVAC programmer, and the air mix actuator from THE
dealer (BillBOOST37 - "Psst. Hey, Bud. Wanna buy a jenn-u-wine air mix actuator?"). Changing the air mix actuator is still a bit of a PITA, but I wouldn't have any reservations about doing another if I had to. Not that I'm a glutton for punishment, but I'd like to see if I could change one without pulling the heater core cover all the way out from under the dash.
I'm walking proof that an untrained
monkey can actually blunder his way through this process.
