Need help with HVAC mode actuator

Hi fellow G6 owners,

I got into my 2006 G6 this morning to go to work, and found that I wasn't getting any air through my dash vents, only the defrost and foot vents were blowing.
Temperature is working fine, and the knob to select which vents seems to be working as well. After doing some research on this forum, it seems to be the Mode Actuator that controls where the air goes. I believe I found the correct actuator from Dorman, but I have no idea where to start for a replacement. Does the mode actuator require the entire dash to come out? It seems like in some GM cars there is a way to "reset" the actuators by pulling a fuse, does this work for the G6? If anyone has a video/repair manual for this actuator you would be my savior. Thanks for reading.
