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?

Bill Davis: Thank you for this video. I used it to replace both actuators behind the dash. It was a great help and most appreciated. Thank you again.

Tonys ToolBox: You got a good gal right there!

W Kelley: Nice video with "Boobies" as a camera operator. Very informative, good job!

Steve Nash: Thanks for the video. On my 2010 3500 Laramie it was the one on the top left. I had no vent air. It actually took me 3 hours. That's 1/2 hour to remove and replace all and 2 1/2 hours to locate the parts from 2 dealerships. Fixed for 120.00 Can.. Dealer quoted 1200.00

Scott F.: Hay, nice video! Did you have a trouble code? Was your A/C not so cold?
I have a 2010 that I purchased about a month ago and just found out the day before yesterday that the a/c is not so cold. it was 26 decrees C with high humidity, the compressor was turning, water running out from under the truck but was barely able to cool down the cab. I put it on the DIY scanner I have and there's a trouble code that says 'Main/Left Temperature Door 1 Control Performance or Incorrect Operation'. I'm wondering if this was your issue also.
Thanks

jperkey7089: was this the one that moved where the air came out from?? like defroster, floor,dash?

spontos26532: So there are apparently 5 actuators on the 09 Dodge Ram 1500. Another one went out and were apparently going to have to completely take the dashboard off because it's in the back. Not easily accessible like the ones in the front. Stay tuned for another video! Oh and subscribe if you like this video lol.

Rhonda Monroe: From a auto shop owner, good job. Had a friend call and ask how big a deal it would be to fix the ticking in his dash, I told him it was most likely a blend door actuator but didn't know how much time it would take. Found your video and was able to price it out over the phone.

Nick Konsumer: Very helpful, thanks!

Vito R: Hey good video. Did that to my truck recently. Although same part keeps breaking. I'm told I might have to remove fuse to recalibrate the throw on eCh one. Know anything about that??

rodbender7: Can anyone describe what each of the 4 actuators do? my hot/cold quit working so which one do I need? I appreciate the video but it's not helpful if you don't know which actuator to replace. Thanks.

Nosajjao: two different repair places quoted me at least 2-6 hrs to work on it.  I found this video and did it in 15 minutes with $30.  This broken device was causing me so much headache and worry for repair costs, and it was this simple.  Wish I'd found the video 7 months sooner

Graham Hill: Thanks for this video you two. Like others, this saved me $500 at the dealership. Got the dorman part for $30 and pulling everything apart let me clean the hard to get places. Much appreciated.

Walt G: Thanks sooo much for the help and posting this fantastic video!!!!! $30 tax included from autozone, 40 minutes which includes getting another couple of screwdrivers and it's back together blowing COOOOLLLLL AIR!!!!!!! Thanks again so much!!!!! W.

Number 21: Excellent tutorial thanks to you i saved hundreds of dollars. I have a 2010 ram and your instructions were spot on. Again thanks!!!!!!!

Jose RAMOS: I have a similar knocking but at the same time my ac blower is not blowing until about 5 minutes into my driving.  Is this a blend door actuator problem, a ac blower fan problem, or both?????

Tony Castro: I replaced both of them in my 11 ram from advance auto parts and still does it when I turn the ac on or change climate

Brian Beck: Thank you very much for the video. Mine just went out in the mountains of Colorado, and your video help me a lot! 30 dollars later and I have the defrosters again!

beto grz: hello from mexico and excuse me about my enlish
i have a ram 2010 reg cab rt  and is the same shape of the dash and glove boxes
does anybody knows how to remove ALL the dash including the gloveboxes?? beacouse i find the blend door actuator behind the glovebox of the top but it seems like im going to need to remove even the top off the complete dash to replace the actuator
(i find two actuators right under the stereo, another one beside of the feet of the copilot and the fourth behind the glovebox thats the one that i need to replace)
does any body knows where can i watch a video to do that ??or anybody can explain me how to do it??  beacouse i am afraid to explode the airbags  

School: Thanks for teaching us how to fix it. The problem with most Medical assistant in california is usually the cost of education. Hopefully it'll pay off. Thanks again.
