I'm hoping its not the unit on the dash side, the manual is calling it a heater and AC control assembly..


Thanks!

If the control unit goes bad it will only blow in defrost mode. That is just $.40 of o-rings and easy to fix.

If you open the glove box and pull it out, look over the top of the heater box towards the dash center, the actuator is there. With the key on and the temp turned to hot, beat on it or tap on it with a little hammer, try moving the temp knob when you are doing this then turn it to hot. Chances are you will get it moving again. LA Tech
Oh and there is nothing under the intake but the hose.If you ever replace it use a high quality high silicone hose and re use the constant tension clamp....yes that is what they are called.Gear drive clamps will allways need to be retightened after an install, constant tension is just what it says, constant tension.They are far better clamps, as the hose softens it just keeps tightening all by itself, no need to remove the intake to retighten
I'm going to do this and see what happens. Thanks! Mine is still blowing cold.

X2.

However, if the control motor is sticking, about 8 of 10 have a stripped gear inside of them. Replacement requires pulling the dash assembly back about a foot... PITA.... I did quite a few of these when I was with Ford. Common issue.

Coodeville I just looked at autozones web site and the thing is practically under the manifold. But the installation instructions they give make it appear that u can change it without taking the manifold off. i'm going to take a good look at all of this when the sun is up. thanks for all the help guys!
11-28-2011 10:46 PM
Coodeville I get the feeling that this thing is located under the intake manifold. Ford placed a heater hose underneath it that's real hard to see. This is probably one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in a car done by the factory. Where do they get theses guys from?
11-28-2011 09:29 PM
cobalt327 Might need to get under it or go through the wheel well opening to get at it. I hope not for your sake.
11-28-2011 04:16 PM
Coodeville I gotta go out and look again. But that is the valve without a doubt! Thank you!

I have the new one here. So I know what it looks like. Alldatadiy.com doesn't even show it. This really sucks.
