Default the old mode actuator trick in the hvac

hi sages- looking for source of a part and having no luck in america. hoping one here smarter than me has one on a shelf in their garage or knows a source. the part is called the mode actuator control and is on the right side dial in the hvac control module of my saturn L !00. it controls the direction of the air flow to the floor or occupants faces or windshield or a combination thereto it also switches the ac on if you direct the air to defrost. i had the whole module out last year to replace the 5 position blower fan speed switch in the top center of the module.the mode actuator part number is 22732653 . surprised i cant find it anywhere since i would think other gm models of similar size to the saturn L might interchange. so what do you think can you help a poor guy from jersey? thanks tons bob f

2040-parts.com shows it as available. $50.
I know nothing about the site.

Upon checking further I dont believe the Dorman number is good for the L series.

hi ibran- looks like curtains for this function. tried dorman, rockauto, 2040 and no soap. 2040 did have a used complete hvac module for an L for 38. mechanic pro tried for me too and stinko results. looks like the dial switch on the module signals a pair of motors behind the glove box which actuate the air direction doors. front dash vents now blow good cold air blast . that is the only position that works on the dial which is at 7oclock low which is ok for the long heat wave in fla, but no good for the cooler/defroster season in jan. will try carid for it . ebay was ng. also will try junkyard. any other ideas/sources? thanks tons bob f

There is one on ebay. Search using only the part number and check the box that says to include descriptions in the search.
The listing number is 124026364094. you can search for the listing number as well.
