2010 blend door

I have been told by the shop that the blend door needs replaced. Does anyone have any diagrams or know where I could find a section of the repair manual to cover the replacement? They are saying it's accessed on the drivers side, not the passenger side like I'm used to. Thanks

unfortunatley not, the few here having blend door issues are forced to either pay-up (1200$ quote is what I got) or live with the issue.

My passenger side needs fixed, I have a plan I just need to time to try it out.

Sorry its not good news.

I was going to suggest heatertreater, but they don't have anything available for the newer jeeps it appears, maybe there is another similar product?

I looked at heat treater as well, nothing there except their universal part. I am not entirely convinced its the blend door, our problem is no matter where you position the temperature knob, the air is always cool. I guess if the door is broken to where it is covering the heater core that would cause it though.

I have a sticky blend door on my 2010 and I just live with it. I'm too cheap to get it fix so I basically reset it twice a year: full heat in the fall and full a/c in the spring.

The blend door IS the temp adjustment, so if yours doesn't make any difference it is probably the blend door. It MIGHT be the HVAC control, so you could attempt some trial-and-error. There is another guy here who is working the same issue and apparently gave up once he found out it would take some effort. Option B: Spend $2,000.00 to have the dealer replace the whole airbox.

The driver's blend door actuator is on the side of the airbox you access through the driver's hush panel above the footwell. It is very difficult to access and will require slender tools and some patience. But you can get in there yourself and see how it works and see if maybe it is just the actuator pack, which is cheap to replace.

Good luck. Search "blend door" and you'll get more info from recent posts. If I had enough energy to completely repeat my blend door tutorial then maybe I'd have enough energy to go out and fix my own.

I've been quoted in the neighborhood of $700. I just wish there was some decent instructions out there on how to fix it and I would do it myself. But I don't want to spend an entire day on something unless I'm sure I can get it all done. Even some instructions on how to remove the dash would help.

So On my (f150) truck I was convinced it was the blend door causing the problem.

Turned out to be the plastic knob that was in the dash had a crack in it, and turning the knob did nothing. $5 fix from dorman.

I've never heard of anyone getting the dealer to replace the airbox for $700. I've heard of people being quoted $1200 and eventually paying $1600-$1700, and I've heard of people being quoted $2,000 and paying a little less than that.

But I'm no expert, I'm just a guy who isn't going to spend $2,000 on it. If I thought I could get it done for $700 and done right, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

If you want diagrams for removing the dash, join alldatadiy.com. That will scare you completely out of the idea--it's like a giant chinese puzzle where everystep has to be done perfectly.

Somebody on here just said "Effit" and cut through one of the support pillars in the front of the dash, and then scabbed a metal piece back on when he'd replaced the airbox. I think his total cost, doing it himself, was $700.

Good luck!

YUP that is basically why I have elected to do the same as one of the above guys and have a winter and summer setting, but if I get a sat this fall I am going to "make an effort" to get to it from the side; if and or when I do, I will let the Jf world know.

If you want to see what's involved in removing the dash check out this link. I thought I wanted to replace my air vents that have broken but seeing this I will keep the adjustment air freshener sticks in the vents in case someone wants the vent to move.

This is from an 05, 2010 similar.

Thought someone recently posted something on this about pulling the glove box to get access to the gear, $18 replacement part?

unfortunatley you are thinking of the recirculation gear on the passenger side. if it was a $18 part... i would be estatic.

I am pretty sure its something along the lines of a 250$ part.. but 8 hrs labor to get it out and back in.
