I just did this to mine but in "Recurculating" mode

Thanks for this awesome post. I followed it and was successful.

The hardest part of the job was getting the 3 semi rusted screws out of the fan! Once the fan was down, we reached up into the hole and positioned the broken recirc door into the recurculating position. I held it there as my friend slid a small wood wedge that he had made into the plastic "grill" thing behind the glove box. It fit perfect and the door was solid shut. A bit of hot glue on the wood wedge and plastic grill and it was done.

The AC is blowing like a hurricane and super cold!

Thanks again from BC Canada

Being in Canada we get both very cold and very hot, and I don't want to 'flip the switch' twice a year. I'm very likely pulling the dash at some point to install some new stuff and relocate all of my wiring for remote start, install a tablet, power inverter, etc and would like to do it right.

Thanks

Here's the procedure for pulling the dash and HVAC sub assembly:

http://www.wjjeeps.com/hvac_ip_remove.htm

As for replacement parts, I think the Dorman HVAC sub assemblies (both the blend door and recirc door) offer the best bang for the buck, even compared to the popular aluminum replacements found on eBay. They address the root cause of door failure, which is the blend door drive connector stop tabs. The drive connector is what attaches the blend door motors to the blend door shaft, the OE doors have a 3 MM stop tab with tends to break and allows the motor over rotate and eventually break the blend door shaft. The Dorman doors use a thicker 4 MM stop tab.
