Is it possible to replace just one, drivers side (RHD) stuck/broken/whatever, I don't want to pay for three motors if only one is not working and if anyone in the Brisbane region is interested in assisting with said replacement it would be appreciated (northside)

Yes it is. You can either use the proper tool to remove the 5 wires where they go into the plug at the HEVAC end or just cut the wires then solder and heatshrink the new one on. If you don't have diagnostics to calibrate them, you may find that the temperature on one side needs to be set differently to the other side. I have to set my drivers side 1 degree higher than the passenger side to get air the same temperature on both sides.

They usually come as a set of three. If you do no good finding one, let me know as I think I have two new ones from a set of three that I "pruned" one off to do exactly your job.

don't hold your breath waiting for someone to come and help as it most likely wont happen, but you will get information to help.
to access the blend motor you need to remove the instrument panel and you can see the motors on the side of the heater box, also remove the front consul, hevac panel to get at the plugs. the wires can be removed with a very small screw driver, jewelers set. also you can test motors with a 9v battery and a multimeter , you can also dismantal and replace the damaged parts if need be. if the heater box has shrunk then its a dash out to fix properly . this can be determand by removing the motor that is attached to the white gear and trying to turn the gear by hand , if it moves free and easy then this not the problem

I just wanted to share that when I fixed my drivers blend(stuck cold) I just removerd the old one and spliced in another one from the junkyard. using the 8 volt battery I was able to set the new motor to the same percentage or whatever that the old one was. Just sliced and black tape old school.

I'd like to get one of those off you, just let me know how much and I can do an EFT for the motor plus freight, I am selling my P38 and that blend motor is the only fault on the car

Do you wish to sell one?

I haven't removed it as yet however I only have cold air from that side, I have had the blende motor (supposedly) repaired twice by a well known LR specialist on the north side of Brisbane and both times it has been the right side which has failed, I tend to think the issue is a stuck flap however I thought if I can get just one motor if it is more than a stuck flap I will have the part available rather than try to source one later

when the motors go out on over current it s a good possibility the heater box has shrunk and the motors don't have enough power to turn them, as i said remove the motor on the white wheel and see if you can turn the wheel . this is the one that usually gets tight , it moves 3 flaps in the box , the other two only move one flap to control temps on either side. the shaft that goes through the box that holds the flaps in place can also slid out .
have you had the faults read from the hevac system, if not this is where you start, then remove the instrument panel and go from their , you may not even need a blend motor.
