Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the blend door actuator on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. You'll need a new blend door actuator from 1AAuto.com, a 7mm socket and ratchet, and a 7/32 socket.

Start off by removing the 7mm bolts from this panel underneath your glove box, this one being right there, and we'll fast-forward as Don removes these 3 bolts. Pull down the panel and remove it. Your blend door actuator is right here. Just push the tab on the harness, pull it free, and then remove that 7/32 bolt and the other one on the other side. We'll fast-forward as Don does this. Now pull the actuator down and it will pull free.

On the left is the old blend door actuator; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they'll fit exactly the same. Take the blend door actuator, push it back up into place, and replace those two 7/32 bolts. We'll just fast-forward as Don replaces those and tightens them up. Connect the harness, push this panel back up into place, replace those three 7mm bolts, and you're all set.
