dont pull dash to replace drivers side a/c blend motor.

2008 F350 6.4
O k, I posted a few weeks ago about my driver side a/c always blowing hot and I got some great info that the blend motor for the drivers side had gone out. What didn't sound good was that I needed to pull the whole dash to replace it, so I thought. Guess I should've researched on here better. I pulled the dash (not all the way but just enough to fit my hands and a mirror behind it) and replaced what I thought was the blend motor but turned out to be the motor for the passenger side. I found another one that is used to switch to the defrost. I then got to searching around and found the motor under the fold out cup holders towards the passenger side which meant I didn't need to pull the dash. In all I found a motor for the passenger side on top of the a/c duct, one on the side of the a/c ducts for the defrost that yes you would have to pull the dash to replace either one. That makes three little motors that all look the same just two of them are a lot harder to fix than the drivers side. In all I spent 4 hours pulling the dash and swapping out motors before I found the right one that took only 20 minutes to change out. Just wanted to post this so someone else doesn't go through the head ache I did.
