2009 Camry Hybrid - Cold air on passenger, only hot on driver
In my 2009 Camry Hybrid, I can only get HOT air out of the driver side vents while the passenger side vents blow the correct COLD. Any advice would be appreciated.
The ductwork has blend doors that move to get the temperature to the vent where you want it. Could be that one of the blend doors is sticking because the door actuator is defective. You may have noticed a tapping sound under the dash from a defective actuator. The doors are located under the dash and possibly behind the glove box; the actuators are small boxes. Try a spray lubricant on the actuators, or remove them to see if there's a broken sprocket. Might need replacing. It's not a difficult fix.
Can I access the doors without removing the dash? I believe I have seen 2 actuators but unsure if they are the correct ones. Any diagrams?
Faulty actuator might be behind the glove box; just remove the door. A defective actuator will make a clicking or buzzing sound.
