As I mentioned in the Gerahead forum, when we reviewed this article, this is an extrememly well written and complete write-up. With all the detail you've provided, even a trained monkey could do this (assuming he could read :P ). Of course, it will still be a PITA to actually do, but the knowledge is now available. Thanks!

I'll ask you for vptruman:

Where did you get your actuator? At GM dealer or a yard or other?

He got one from The Dealer

The actuators are easy if you find a car missing the dash. However I may be in the market to pick up a couple more soon.

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.
