Hi im having issues with my car AC. One side blowing nice cold air and the passenger side blowing hot air and i was told that it was the blend door actuator on the passenger side that was faulty. The only problem is that i cant seem to locate it anywhere behind the glovebox like i was told! I have a 2010 Ford Fusion Se 3.0L V6 if that helps .Can anyone helpe me locate it please :frown:

Same problem with my '11 Sport...need HELP!

I just finished the 4 hour dash removal exercise to replace the evap temperature sensor which resulted in the return of ice cold air. Unfortunately only to the driver's side. The passenger side is about 15-20 degrees warmer and has ~50% air velocity behind it as well.

So I've watched the driver side actuator and passenger side perform the reset (disconnect battery, remove fuse 15, wait 2 minutes, turn on). They both articulate a full rotation just as they should. But the one that is up high on the passenger side behind the glove box on the right side feels (can't see) like it only turns when the floor vent is turned on and feels like 100% velocity on that setting. Once you move from floor to main vents it seems as though it isn't rotating as far as it should. It is hard to tell by just feel but it is not moving as swiftly when it goes from floor to main vents as it is in reverse.

So my question is...am I imagining things or is this actuator the problem?

Hi there,
same problem with my 2012 fusion SEL.
Were you able to solve the problem? I think it's because of the faulty passenger side blend door actuator but i couldnt figure out how to remove it??

Having the same problem on my 2011 Fusion Sport. I can feel and see the blend door moving, but it will not go lower than 72 degrees. The one on the drivers side moves across the whole arc just fine.

I cannot figure out how to remove the blend door actuator on the passenger side.

So I did manage to get the passenger side blend door actuator out. I ended up removing the top screw by putting a 7/32 socket on the screw and using my finger tips to unscrew it.

Removed the actuator and tried cycling it off of the HVAC housing and it seems to cycle completely from side to side.

I manually moved the blend door from side to side and it feels like there is something preventing the door from closing out the heater core all the way. I tried sticking a bore scope down the duct and have been able to spot an obstruction yet.

I can't get ARRC to connect right now, so I can't get the exact removal instructions...

Picture 2
5 years late, but could you please help me out with those instructions?

I’m still at a loss and can’t figure out what is obstructing the passenger side blend door from moving.
Tried taking a bore scope down the vent multiple times, but can’t see anything obvious.
