Default Driver's side AC Actuator unit

Hi Guys;

I have the dash pad off (needed to fix heads up unit anyway). Is there any trick to getting to the screws on the driver's side actuator door unit. I was getting cold air passenger and hot driver with AC on and checked the codes which indicated drivers side actuator door control unit. I have the part but trying to get at the 6mm bolts that hold it in is a bitch. Does anyone have a trick to get these out and back in. I am concerned about losing the back bolt even if I can get it out. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

I just did my 01, I used a small dab of clay to hold the bottom screw in place when putting the new actuator in, I used a 1/4" drive ratchet to remove it. Also move the side defroster duct and remove the inside temp duct and sound muffler and instrument cluster, you don't have to unplug the instrument cluster just move it to the left to gain more room. FYI I changed both actuators and the hazard switch while I had the cover off, don't really want to do it again!
