temp fix for blend doors?

my blend doors are f'ed and i dont have the money right now to buy a heatertreater. i drive about an hour in my jeep to and from work. was wondering if i could just cut behind the glove box and temporary flip the blend doors so that they just blow hot air all the time. im also assuming that i would have to remove the blend door motor as well if i can do this.

I did this to mine too, but only on the passenger side. Had I seen this thread sooner I would have posted a link to another where I posted a small write-up.

I drilled a hole inbetween the two doors, lifted the pass. door up then put a wood screw in it.

That is what I did to mine, but come to find out my hard to reach servo was stuck. After I cut the hole in the plastic I find this out, but at least I'm prepaired for a failure now

If it's not blowing, then your resistor or a fuse may be blown. This fix is for when it only blows cold or hot. If you have manual control, you can probably pull the servo off behind the glovebox and try turning the flapper with your hand.

to OP:

What was your original problem? You had no heat at all, or just had no control over where the heat went? Also, what year is your beast?


Trying to diagnose/repair 95 ZJ. Selector is stuck on floor, and my heat is only lukewarm........No money for the heatertreater, and I've got to get this fixed before it gets too much colder.
