Blend Door Actuator thumping sound

There are lots of excellent posts on how to fix and replace both the front and rear blend door actuators. What I have discovered is a supplier named "Blenddoor", you can google it, that has just the gear we need to fix the blend door actuators instead of replacing the whole part, you just replace the actual gear that stripped out and is creating the thumping sound. The cost is just $19 or $20 and also available from both Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Actuator-Rebuild-Lincoln-Mercury-1990-2012/dp/B01FIIWM90
and eBay

.

Here are the links I found.

The same gear is used in a lot of Ford Lincoln Mercury blend door actuators and might help you save some money too. I wish I had discovered this option sooner now that I am on my 3rd Navigator! I'm planning to install mine this afternoon and will get back to you if there are any issues in the future. However I have high hopes because all the reviews I read prior to purchase were 5 star.

Update....the part installed easily and is working perfectly. Again, if I experience any issues with it in the future, I will let you all know but for now I am one happy camper!
