Just in case you can DIY
That might be a tall order. Iím not 100% certain but Iím pretty sure a blower motor (or blend door as well) replacement is a full dash-out job.

Iíve seen videos of dash-out jobs on other modern cars. To call it a nightmare is a major understatement.

On a car, it can be a PITA.
This is for his home air handler. Usually easier to service the main bits compared to a car.

Now the blower motor in my house ac took a dump.
$2700 for the original motor.
Any idea on how many hours it was to fix? My 2024 A/C was working yesterday, today it's not. No PAG oil on the ground, no R134a smell. I'm 2000 km from home so not much for tools. The fan works, the A/C blue light comes on, air comes out on the defrost, vents, floor, as it all should, but it's just HOT air. I'm not sure if there is a heater valve to shut coolant flow off to the heater core, or they run coolant through the core all the time and use a door to divert air flow. I'm guessing they use a door? It's probably not vacuum controlled like in the 80's. I'm hoping it's an easy fix and I can get it done before the trip home.

I think the system uses the refrigerant that replaced r134a.
There are rarely "easy" fixes for these modern ac systems.
I would start by verifying your compressor is running. Doubt you can hear it. I would feel the suction line (the larger of the two ac lines) to see if it is getting cold.

Compressor is not cycling. You're correct, it's not R134a, it's 1234Y or something. I can see the clutch isn't kicking in. It's either out of refrigerant or electrical gremlin/bad sensor. Hottest week of the year.

I agree with your analysis.
If you can find a DIY recharge kit with the correct refrigerant I would start there. if you are extra lucky, maybe find one with dye so you can skip that step at the dealer.
