    So apparently my AC is working properly but the air coming into the car is warm. Which actuator controls the air between the ac and heat? Can I just move the arm manually to the cold side for a quick fix until I get a chance to replace the actuator?

    This is a "I believe" answer; drop the glove box down, straight back to the firewall there is an actuator lying flat on top of the fan housing.

    No that one is for recirkulation of air
    the one you are looking for is the lower one on passenger side of the heat box
    This one dont have an leveling arm but just an hole with splines .

    My write up will answer your questions:

    https://www.s197forum.com/threads/how-to-dash-blend-door-actuator-replacement-05-09-mustang.138833/

    Your problem is this:

    3. Temperature blend door actuator on passenger side behind the center console (lower) (Motorcraft part no. YH 1865).

    There's no swing arm for that one but you can use a short flat blade screwdriver to turn the cogwheel towards the cold side. It'll work fine while you're waiting for the new actuator. I bought mine from Rockauto. It's an easy fix.

    Oh yeah...recirculate...forgot about that one. The blend door will rotate on its own when the actuator is removed. I do not know if this is the warm or cold position though.
