Taking airbag out, doesnt seem to be of any help, for what its worth.
Took three nights trying to get the back screw of servo (toward firewall) out. Skinned hands and grinding teeth galore....
Then I got a good flexible screw driver bit holder from amazon... (I had one that was just not flexible enough) and it still took some cursing and tears, but I got the last screw out. One of those long carburetor tools might be the real ticket... i dont know, but it seems passenger side airbag models have really really tight access. i couldnt for the life of me remove all the air ducting on passenger side due to these riveted trellis brackets....nevertheless.
I then removed the motors from the bracket and noticed that the little gear at end of spindle had indeed walked off, and if you look inside the servo bracket there are two gears, and it seems likley that they just werent meshing up (as i had read in another thread)
they gear would move back down the spindle with finger pressure so i used a screwdriver handle and banged it down till it seemed like it was in position to engage both gears.
I did this for the blend door lever gears, (one with arm attached to cable (cable that you remove to remove servo from car)
and for the other set of gears that work the fan distribution works...(even though i wasnt having an issue with them) I did notice gear had walked abit there as well...so why not.
I am going to place in back in car this afternoon after work when i get to the parking lot and see if drive home all is well.
I am NOT planning on putting that third screw toward firewall back in for any reason!
unless there is a good reason.
fingers crossed my problem is solved without sourcing a used servo.
here are pics of one of the motor gears on the spindle: before and after.
