Mode door on a 2008 Rav 4?

Hi

We have a 2008 RAV4 and heat or ac is only coming through the floor vents. When I push the button to change the direction to the defrost or dash vents I hear a noise coming from under the glove box.

I had a similar problem in an old car and I had to replace the mode door actuator. Does that exist in a RAV4? I am having trouble finding information about it and I’m wondering if anybody else has had that issue or has an insight. Is there a easy way that anyone knows to check resistance to see if one is bad?

Thanks

yup . . . your car has one

Yes it does.

Thank you both.
