I Need Tips for removing actuator

I have the clicking actuator problem and it clicks when the vent door behind the glove box opens and closes ( by vent I mean the door above the interior air filtration filters). Iíve had most of it apart and realized there is not enough room between the actuator and the Jeep fender to fit any tools or a hand in there for removal. I circled the part in the image......poor quality image but should give you guys an idea of which actuator Iím referring too. Thanks guys and gals!

Any idea how to remove the entire part that I circled in blue? It resides behind the glove box. I figured that if I could remove the entire unit then I could remove the actuator that is attached to the side of it.

Pretty sure you have to remove the dash to get the entire HVAC box out. But you may be able to get the actuator out without removing the entire box.

Thank you so much for pointing out her video.....I thought the screws were 5 or 6mm.....I was wrong! The fact that they are Phillips head makes it easier. Thanks !!!
