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
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
Brad Thompson: Good video.. Love the Beer inside the truck :P but System of the down was
Jason H.: dodge just quoted me minimum of 8 hours @ 145/hour plus parts.. yeah
Alessandro Pugliese: Is that part number 604-005 or 604-038? I replaced the exact same actuator
and days later it broke again. I bought part #604-004.. I'm not sure if I
need #604-038 instead. By the way awesome video!! I hope you're getting
paid for this video from the ads
Griffin: I know there is the 2 you are looking at and one behind the glove book but
do you know how to get to the forth one? Just wondering if you could see it
from were your at when you have the center all apart. The forth one is for
the passenger blend door actuator.
Paolo Rizzardi: Anyone have the model number for this part? and are both those the same
part? they look the same!??
Rich Wildrick: Thanks for this posting, I just swapped out the actuator in about 30
minutes and that even counted cleaning up the spilled coffee that was on
the chrome trim ring I needed to remove. I bought a Dorman actuator
(604-038) at Advance Auto for $32 and it took care of my problem. Its a sin
that the local Dodge dealer estimated $500 to do this repair.
rob dees: Man this was so f***ing awesome!!! I have been dealing with this issue for
the last eight months. Here in southern Louisiana the mechanics wanted
around $350 to do the job. I went to the dealer and spent $84 for a pair
of blend door actuators for my 2010 hemi sport crew cab, and in the next
hour I had a/c blowing in all directions again. Thanks!!!
Nicholas Dominguez: Thx for putting this up..you've helped out all of us
Jeff Engel: Thanks for posting this video. I had a blend door motor go bad on my 2010
Ram 2500 laramie and the dash removal was exactly the same. Your video
helped me take this dash out for the first time.
Patrick Hoggard: You can slide the gear off of the shaft and turn it 180 degrees and put it
back together and it will work just fine. 0 dollars. Fixed mine today.
MICHAEL COLLINS: I have the same issue on my 2007 ram its like a slap when turned on feet
Peter A: Really helpful, thanks. I have the same issue in my 09 but I think there is
another actuator up against the firewall, anyone know if thats true. I
checked all 3 that I could reach from the front and have the same problem.
greeceball: Thanks! I had the dash out in 10 minutes WITHOUT breaking any clips. Do you
have a video for removing the glove compartment? Those two actuators in my
09 laramie look fine. I need to access the other two.
greeceball: I need a video to get to the other 2 actuators!
Bob Bone: have a 2010 laramie looks exactly like your 09 with electronic temp
control. Q: What was the part# used in this video. Was it the dorman
604-005 or 604-038
Lewieville SlugR: I have that exact same i heart boobies bracelet on my shifter too lol thats
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
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.
Manny Regateiro Jr.: great video. Think this is my issue on my 2010... thanks for making the
video you two.
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
Matthew Rainey: There is a recall for this they have to update the software and if any
actuators are broke fix it for free
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
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
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.
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
Sleepy731: just dropped off truck today and was told this is not under any recall
Reynaldo Armendarez Jr: Amazing video! It saved me a ton of cash and time. Thanks a mil for your
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.
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!
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
