    Air mix door/actuator's technical name

    I found out that I need to replace my air mix door actuator, but I can't find what it is called. I have been trying to find it on gmpartsdirect and they don't have a air mix door actuator. Does anybody know what the technical name for it is? Thanks in advance.

    May I ask what problems you're experiencing? I need a similar part I believe. My parking brake does not automatically release, and I have no air flow through the dash vents.

    I have hot air coming from the driver side vents no matter what the temp setting is at. The passenger side works fine, it's just the drivers side. I started having this problem a few months ago, but with the Michigan winters, I didn't mind the heat. Now that's it's starting to warm up, I want my AC fixed.

    I just found a temp door actuator, could that be it? There is no description of the part on gmpartsdirect.

    Thanks guys, I found the part on both Rockauto and Dorman Products. Rockauto calls it a Heater Blend Door Actuator, and Dorman calls it a Air Door Actuator. I really appreciate the help guys.

    If you have variable temperature anywhere in the front passenger compartment, thats not your problem. Id be looking for a mode door actuator, its the on that actually directs air flow, rather than change its temperature.

    Is it behind the glove box on a 1990 seville . My glove box is on top of the dash, so do I go under the pannel on the passager side

    I THINK it is behind it or in that general vicinity. Try from underneath first. Then remove the glove box if necessary.

    On a 97 STS there are two of them behind the glovebox, one on top that controlls the drivers side temperature, one on the bottom that does the passenger side. Would assume its a similar configuration on the 99s. Get them from Ebay, there are lots of them there, just make sure you get the part number off the one in the car first.

    Re: Air mix door/actuator's technical name

    I have a 2003 Deville that has problems with where the air is directed to, sometimes it comes out the dash and sometimes it comes out the floor, etc. I suscribed to All Data and on their repair it's called a "Mode Actuator" I removed the knee pad from under the steering wheel and the insulation behind that and I can see the thing if I stand on my head! There is an air duct right in front of it blocking the view. I expect if you had done this before you could feel you way around and get it out but I haven't! So I'm thinking about cutting the air duct and then taping it back together when I am done. What I would like to do is just set it so it comes out the dash and let it go at that. I live in Fort Myers and don't really need to use the heater part so don't need the air to come out the floor. I have taken some pictures as I have gone along so I can email them if you would like them.
