You dont have to get a new cable. They are difficult to come by. I put 2 little cuts on each side using a dremel where it is clippedthem to the controller and wraped a tie wrap around it. I will have to put up pics when I can. It is real easy to do.

so its still broke tho....

so if ya break it to make it not broke a new cable would be needed....

wreckers would have them, every YJ I saw still had the cables, fishingthem out might be a *****, but thinking of going and trying jsut for spares... I jsut spuer glued the botom of it on as long as its in there it cant really get out even broke...

OK since this thread got revived I have one question to ask that has not been covered.
This is the picture of the Vacuum motor that controls the air flow from outside:



Is this in the Open or closed position?

Does anyone have a picture of (or know) which way is actually open or closed? (What does the flapper door look like?)

I always feel cold (outside air) coming into the Jeep even when everything is "off", I did have the heater assembly apart a while ago and I may have the vacuum lines switched. But it would be nice to be able to see the inside of this part of the vent. Thanks, Jim

The flapper you are talking about seeing is under the cowl vent which is located just behind the hood hinges. Mine Is Crome. Take the screws out and remove the screen, that vac motor you are looking at controls the flap on the passenger Side.

Awesome thread.

My blower has always sounded fine, but the Jeep NEVER warms up. After checking the things in this thread, I found out someone had knocked the black vacuum line under the dash loose and plugged it back into the last hole that should be empty. After switching them around I'm getting lotsa lotsa heat!!!

Thanks!
