Default Blend door actuator

Do any of you fine forum members happen to have a break down of the HVAC assembly for a 2000 C/K with out duel zone temp controls? I need to replace the blend door actuator on my neighbor'* truck and I can't remember if its the one on top or the bottom of the heater box. I'm hoping it'* the bottom one because I don't feel like ripping the dash completely apart.

The airflow just blows where it chooses. It is currently in the defrost location but will change intermittently. Any ideas?

sounds like the position actuator gears are bad, though i havent taken one of those trucks apart to tell you exactly how. pretty common failure it will have to be replaced though just resetting it i doubt would do anything. you can watch them and one should move when you change positions if so the controller should be fine

Nothing happens when I move the controller. I've heard there are a couple or more actuators...do you know by chance which one I would need to replace?

Oh sorry, yes I hear things moving and trying to adjust but it doesn't change the airflow direction. It might be the gears...so you're saying to get down and watch during that re setting process and I should be able to see something?
