Thanks and Heads Up for Replacement Part
Thank you for the post and the courage to tackle this on my own. Like an idiot, I ordered the part based on a quick internet search so I would have it when I started the repair. Buyer beware! There are a lot of websites out there that will try and sell you a 5 pin replacement blend door actuator when you search for mode actuator. On my wife's 2013 Chevy Equinox, once I got it out, it is a 6 pin and the wiring harness was shaped differently than the part it plugs into on the actuator. This was my fault though, so I wanted to give others a heads up. I found a six pin on NAPA, part # TEE ADA245.
