Default Driver Side Air Mix Actuator

I just pulled my bonnie (2000 SSEI) out of storage about 2 weeks ago and was driving in the Milwaukee cold (10 degrees). That is when I realized that I had no heat...brrrrrrr. I do have the heat on the passenger side, so it sounds like the air mix actuator is bad (based on this site). I searched and searched for the part number and cannot find it. Does anyone have the part number? If someone can point me to the most detailed write up on replacement, that would be appreciated (i searched and found a few, thought there might be a more comprehensive one somewhere).

Thanks.

I thought we had a write up on that, but guess not. Toddster should be the one to answer this, he should be on later tonight. Not sure how this will match up with your year.

You should be able to see the actuator arm thew the glove box, you will need to remove the liner.

This might help as well

Hope this helps get you in the right area.

Thanks for the pic, this is helpful. Is what you are pointing at the driver side air actuator or the passenger side? Are they in different locations?

Thanks again.

I never truly found the part for this, so I wanted to see if anyone could confirm if this is the actuator that I need, I found this on Rockauto as "Heat & Air Conditioning : Heater Blend Door Actuator"

I have a picture below of what I was going to get, but will not order until I am 100 % sure this is what I need (based on the forum, it is bad, but would rather buy this before taking apart).

IMO, I wouldn't order the part until you are sure its what you need, but I believe that is it.
