The procedure, to clarify, is to pop the rod out, set the temp to highest setting, wait for the actuator to move to the right most, and pop the rod back in?
Essentially yes, just make sure you set the door to full hot before reconnecting the rod.

And is it easy enough to pop the rod out and back in? It looks pretty tight from the pics that I have seen.

Uhmmm, yeah. Sorry about that...

Just remember that I said I had never done this before and was only quoting the FSM. Didn't mean to lead you down the rosy path, lol.

popping the rod out and snapping it back togrther is not an easy task

it took me about an hour to put it back together

there is little room for doing the work. i used 2 screwdrivers

when i took it apart, the plastic connector fell off the rod and down into the dash

i had to find it, put it back on the metal rod, then snap it back together

that connection is about 4 or 5 inches behind the hole in the picture
