Blend door actuator

Hi Guys
Iím Hoping someone can assist me. Iím attempting to replace my 2010 ford Rangerís (4.0 V6) blend door actuator. This actuator appears to have three fastening screws, two on the bottom and quite easily accessible, but the third screw is fastened from the top side of the actuator and is almost impossible to get to. If anyone has any tips as to how to remove this screw without destroying something, it would be much appreciated

Welcome to the forum

Ford service manual says pull out the dash, lol

I haven't had to do this.............yet, but have read that the screw in the back is an 8mm and can be unscrewed using a short socket wrench, 1/4"
And most do not put it back in, and say it has made no difference in blend door operation

Have also read that you remove the front 2 screws then pry up on the old actuator breaking it off at the rear screw, then remove screw and don't replace it
But only read that from one person
Using the 8mm socket was from several posts
