The 6th is tricky usually it remains the same because it is surrounded by the #5 and b7. In harmonic minor you do have the b6th scale degree, but in only extreme cases is it used as a chord tone. Like I was discussing w/NTM in a previous post, when the b6 is added to the chord it becomes a inverted major7th chord.
