Drivers side A/C problem

I'm going to make this short and simple. My drivers side A/C blows hot air all the time while the passenger side works just fine. It just started and I haven't tried anything yet. Looking for ideas of where to start to find the problem. Oh ya, and I live in central Texas and its starting to get HOT around here! Thanks!

You have dual automatic temperature control? The motor for the blend door on the drivers side has quit working.

And the driver side requires removal of dash to R&R.

Recently took mine in for the same thing. I thought it was just the passenger side blender door...nope. It was both. Fixed under warranty. Dash out job. My ford mechanic also happens to be my buddy. He said they re engineered the doors. If u have not already he then upgraded under warranty.

$25 part, $600 in labor from a dealer. It's the blend door motor/actuator and is a common point of failure for the dual climate zones. The passenger motor can be replaced without removal of the dash but not the driver side.

I've had my drivers side stuck on cold for the past year (winter sucked), and one of these weekends coming up I'm going to do a dash removal and document the steps.

I do recommend replacing all the blend door motors when the dash is off so you don't have to do it again anytime soon.
