I’m trying to source an ‘airflow mode actuator’ / heater blend door motor for a 2007 Mazda 6I, manual heat and a/c control.
Current [failed] part is a Valeo 51872 502752-3470 D32063551A. Please see attached photo should you care. https://photos.app.goo.gl/U1ab7QF5r4ZwHHMj7
Local dealership says they can’t get one, warehouses are out, etc.
RockAuto, 1A Auto, and most consumer parts chains don’t list the part.
Can anyone recommend a good source, or do I start calling salvage yards at this point?
Alternately – I just want to switch the A/C from being stuck on defrost. This is not a new car – is it feasible to remove the failed part, manually set the A/C to the cabin and leave it there for the summer?
I would appreciate any insight and advice – thanks all.
