The bottom of the plastic "Mode Door" (to control from which ports the heater/AC air exits the dash) has a D-shape cast into it, and that's where mine broke off. Yes, the entire dash and HVAC assembly are now out of the ZJ! :P Not actually a bad job so far, in that all fasteners and plugs are easy to get at. But there sure are a lot of them!! See item 8
in this pic:
Now, rather than toss in another 15 year old plastic door from the JY, I wonder if the 1997 or 1998 Mode Door axles might have been upgraded to steel? The Temperature blend door (item 11
in the pic above) is all steel... maybe I could adapt one of them.. ???
Or, apparently RAM trucks from 1997-2002 use the same HVAC assembly!! Any chance someone here knows if the RAMs might have had steel Mode Doors?
Good thing the steering lock is still on!! [lmao]
