There's 3 actuators, is it safe to assume this is an 06/07 Monte? Because it seems to be way more common with that year.

Sounds like it's actually the recirculation actuator, which is a pretty easy one to fix. If you open the glove box, then press the tabs to fully drop the door, you should see 2 actuators in there. One on the left which is the passenger side temp one, and the right one which is the recirculation one.

They're like $20, you need a 5.5mm socket and about 10-15 minutes of your time.

Here's a couple pictures from when I had to swap them out in my old Impala. The easier to see one is the passenger blend door, the recirculation one is the backwards one, but showing you the passenger one shows you how the screws sit and the plug is.

I hate that sound. After replacing it three times, I just stopped hitting the recirculate button.....

They are just really cheap actuators. The gear inside them is plastic, and it breaks.
