QUESTION: Will doo sir just fill me in on that answer

Answer
Here is the revised answer:
The actuators for the blend doors are on the left hand end of the HVAC housing and are accessible without removing the dash. There is a 'silencer' on the lower edge of the dash on the driver side that is removed to then give you access to the housing and the door actuators. In my '02 manual which I have on hard copy there are some drawings/steps that may be helpful compared to what is shown in the '04 manual which I have on CD and could attach to an email. So I would suggest that I photocopy and mail you a couple of pages from that '02 manual. Tell me your postal address and I'll do that.
