How To Change A 09 Dodge Ram Laramie Blend Door Actuator To Fix Knocking Noise Behind Dash Board




What do you think about this video?

Lewieville SlugR: I have that exact same i heart boobies bracelet on my shifter too lol thats awesome

Mark van Dalm: Thanks for this tutorial. I just applied it to my '09 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi and everything seems to be working fine now. The major difference for me was that the replacement part cost $63.

Dee201142: You have to tell people to keep the white lever pushed up to the top BEFORE you slide in the replacement unit. If you don't you won't get the proper direction for the air and you will not get anything at the feet. Trust me.....I found out the hard way.

bluewaterdiscovery: Awesome video! thanks for posting.....I'm sure this is covered under a recall service bulletin but I really don't like the idea of someone tearing the crap out of my dash! Dealership told me they would have to pull the whole dash and that it would take a full day or more! As a mechanic (aviation) I think I will do this myself....One question though, Isn't the clocking of the gear on the actuator important to the position of the door mechanism? 

Matthew Rainey: There is a recall for this they have to update the software and if any actuators are broke fix it for free

Manny Regateiro Jr.: great video. Think this is my issue on my 2010... thanks for making the video you two.

Chris Alkire: I was just quoted $471.63 for this job. I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport and I want to say thank you for this video. I have dual climate control and NAV so this video is exactly what I needed. I'll fix this gremlin this weekend

sammysweet60: Awesome. You two are an asset to the working man. Way to save me and others a lot of cash. 2010 1500 Ram had the same thing happen but I had 148.000 when it happened. Thanks again

Chris Cody: Nice Video dude, it took me 15 minutes and 32 bucks.......

cslimproduction: I have a 2009 dodge ram and I heard a knocking noise behind dash board when I put air on it blows to the feet

Sleepy731: same problem and just now noticed the other video on how to replace and how much it costs, its a 15 minute job! fml!

Joseph Johan: Dude Thank you very much, The dealer quoted me close to $1000 + Parts, I took a gamble and was able to do this in 21 minutes flat. One hint though the 2 actuators are located side by side, so before you disconnect the wires try to put one hand on the actuator and turn thee ignition on,This way you dont take the wrong one of, The bad one will vibrate to your touch. Thank you very much

sicc Tv: You have an easy fix. Good job bro Now on my 09 I bent the ac line going into the evap core behind the firewall..... I'm freaked and it does require full dash removal. Lol

dan man: Thanks alot bro and camera girl dealer wants to charge me $1400 thay sead the whole dash panel has to come off. Now i can do this job my self with out tearing up

Matthew Bellavigna: Thank you so much for posting this saved me a fortune! The dealer said $1400 but I did it in 45 min and the part was $53.

Steven Permenter: Awesome video and it helped me out a lot when I changed my acutators. Thnx.

ripped5050: Thanks alot for the video,mine went out yesterday and this video is a great help.Thanks again.

C Calder: If you have electronic temperature control, the part number is 6808 9742 AA. This is a great video. Thanks for posting it. I have a 2009 Dodge Ram Laramie with 41K miles on it. I wasn't sure if it was the door or the actuator and I didn't know how to get to it. I don't have a center console like you have, so the second part of my dash removal was different. I had 8 more screws to remove (which included removing the ash tray and cigarette lighters. Took about 45 minutes in all.

tednuugent66: Thanks man, that helps a lot. thanks for the post too. yours is the only one with the same console/dash.

Sid Payne: Thanks a ton for this video. It saved me a lot of money and frustration. My truck is a base model so my dash is a little different. I shot a quick video of getting the to actuator and linked to yours since it was so helpful.

Sleepy731: just dropped off truck today and was told this is not under any recall

CoachworksBodyShop: Just wanted to take time to say thanks for putting this vid up...I almost turned down this job because we thought we had to pull dash . It went just as you posted..ty again.

Reynaldo Armendarez Jr: Amazing video! It saved me a ton of cash and time. Thanks a mil for your post.

B Scott: Is this dual zone or single zone?

greg nickel: thanks for the vid, just started making noise yesterday on my wifes 09. at 43000 miles dont know if it will be under warranty so this is a great help.

akjk04: Do you have the Big Horn edition? I am having the same problem.

spineandbones: 2009 with 36k. Same problem. Will repair this myself now. Txs for the vid!

edwb1: Great video, I hate paying the dealer for something I can do. You're video just made it a lot easier.Canadian 2009 Laramie Crew

Byron Cate: Great video! I have an 2010 Ram 1500 Laramie 4WD....you saved me a lot of cash. I typed in my VIN on dodge's website and there is no recall. I have 43K miles, that seems to be the magic number for these parts to fail.

spontos26532: @tednuugent66 we did not pay attention to the actuator part number, I do know that we couldnt get it anywhere but the dodge dealership. aha, i just found the old part lol i need to throw this away already, not sure if it'll help but it has some numbers on it. First line: AA-113800-3041 Second line: 300094 08/27/08 01:09:39. I hope this helps. -The Mrs.

bigdaddy9z: WOW! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! So... mechanic said "probably will be several hundred, maybe a thousand bucks cuz you gotta pull the dash". Came home, two minutes searching youtube, ten minutes watching this video, $38 bucks at the dealership for the part, 20 minutes doing and bang! Done! You and "The Mrs." saved me a ton. Oh - I used a Miller Light instead of a Bud. Apart from that it went off exactly like the video. Thanks again guys. How nice of you to help others!

tednuugent66: you dont happen to remeber the part number on that actuator, do you?

ImageX: *ATTENTION EVERYONE* This is absolutely a recall. It happened to me today. The recall is under the "reprogram HVAC head and if clicking, replace actuators". Thanks Spontos. You are the man. Your video was going to save me money if I had to do it myself!

baldito2020: hi. i think im having the same problem. did your ac not blow in the front vents at all? and the flapping noise came on eve4ry time you d try to switch it to the front vent??

spontos26532: We are very glad that we could help with this video. Thank you all for the comments and likes :). I told my husband this would help out a lot of people and save them money, so i'm glad that it did :)

tvonk1: This saved me 1600 dollars. The dealer wanted to install a complete heater assembly. Way to go!! Thanks.

41Burns: Thank you for saving me time and money..

greg nickel: Just a follow up, vid helped immensely especially the part where I could do it while having a beer makes my job easier lol

coolair55: do you no if there's one behind the glove box.

Robert Zimmerman: $200.00 job, are you kidding me? Dodge Huntington on Long Island said it was a $1100.00 job because they had to remove the dash. I am so glad you did this video, thanks.

Robert Bourland: Thanks a lot. Great video!!! I have a 2009 Doge Ram 1500 and had the same problem. You guys made it simple.

iaslsz: I have a 09 ram 1500 doing the same thing i see the two star bolts on top anyone know where the others are on the 1500? please help simple fix just cant remove dash
