What kinds of problems are there? You should get a signature listing your year, miles, and other general info like that for future reference because each year Riviera is quite different from the next.

what"classic" problems are you talking about?the seat warmer comes on by itself and warms your bum in the dead of summer and cant be shut off? or the supercharger coughs on acceleration instead of whining? or the hood pulls a Christine on you and shuts itself on your head while your working under the hood? those problems? dont worry they are quite normal and nothing to be concerned about.

This is one of the HVAC controllers.

Can someone explain where the position of the Blue plastic gear should be in relation to the other gears, Normally. ???
I forget, but I think this one needs to be indexed properly.
It appears to be out of Sync.

Try removing the white plastic gears and repositioning the Blue gear so that it is in the center of it's normal travel (rotation) and re-installing it and trying to operate the HVAC system and, if this actuator is rotating then continue until you find the center of it's operating range.
Or as Randall did and make a 5volt powerpack to operate the Actuator and try to reposition it that way. If the gears operate with 5 or so volts you have a good Actuator and just need to center or index it properly.
Then everything should be working properly.
Good Luck and report back what you find.

Interesting, just tonight I had my pass. Side actuator out and was looking for the writeup about it with no success. If somebody could locate that writeup and please add it to the 'write-ups' links I would also appreciate it.

Jeff, in your user profile add the car's info to the 'signature' area and turn on your signature.

Derek, is this the write-up you are talking about?

http://rivperformance.editboard.com/interior-f20/write-up-hvac-assembly-t2500.htm

If so, it's listed in the Interior Write-Ups index.

No, there was one where somebody showed how to repair and/or reindex the gears inside the actuator.
