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?

Nick Konsumer: Very helpful, thanks!

Vito Recchia: 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  

Brad Thompson: Good video.. Love the Beer inside the truck :P but System of the down was getting annoying.

Jason H.: dodge just quoted me minimum of 8 hours @ 145/hour plus parts.. yeah right.!!

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. 

Nicholas Dominguez: Thx for putting this up..you've helped out all of us

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.

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.

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
