I am getting a code for a blend door stuck......I have done a little research and it looks like you can get an electric controlled blend door and a vacuum controlled door online.
Does anyone know if there are 2 of them? Does anyone know how to get at at? I have heard that it is accessible by removing the back of the glove compartment. Thanks

I hope these cars are not like the 1990-1997 Lincoln Town Cars. You have to remove the entire instrument panel to get to the blend door in those cars. I had a '95 and thankfully no issues with mine while I owned it. Hopefully Cadillac designed theirs to be easier to access.

Good luck!

Ok great......It looks like I am going to need the Mix Door......Do you know if it is accessible by taking the back of the glove box out? Thanks

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/member.php?u=51995Tennesseestorm- I had a 97 TC and the blend door went out on me on that; it would make a constant clicking sound. It was about 7 hours labor to change it out. I have heard that the Cadillac's are much easier to change tho. Thanks

Yep that is how those went out on those. Luckily I never had a problem with my '95 TC, even when I sold it at 235k miles. I imagine that it had already been replaced in the past.
