Lizardskin is a cool paint on product that you can use on driver side tub area by the exhaust.

Hey Randomdude, what exactly did you do to fix it? I need to know as well.

Slide the lever while watching the arm circled below.

If the arm does not move, you can move it by hand over to cold as a temporary fix.

Hey Wheelin98TJ, I'm having the same problem as Randomdude, however, I checked and the arm and it does move when I slide the lever. Pretty sure it's going to be related to this, because I feel warm air coming from the floor vents. Any other ideas? I was curious what Randomdude did exactly to fix his.

That is bad news.

I think you need to pull the dash so you can crack open the heater box. It sounds like your blend door has become unattached from the lever arm, the arm you see that is still moving.

I've never dealt with your specific issue first hand, so I'd recommend you do a little more research on the forum here to verify what I'm saying.

Well, it was easy.... I just flipped the lever in the picture and the heat stopped. I guess I got lucky.

I have some experience in this area, so hopefully I can shed some light on it. If you have a 1997 (or even up to a mid year 1998 like mine) then you have mechanical sliders as opposed to electrical HVAC control knobs which began to appear in 1999 models (or some late year 1998 production runs). When pushing the slider and no change happens to the white knob in the picture (under the dash) then most likely the steel cable is disconnected or broken as in my case.

Also, even after I replaced my steel cable it may not fix the problem because there is a small green connector on the bottom of the blower motor which the cable attaches to. Mine is broken, so I have to replace this as well.

Hope it helps.

I can see it moving and I feel a huge temperature change when I go between hot and cold. And my cab wasnt getting as hot as Randomdude's going down the road. I'm guess it's just not closing all the way or something. I appreciate you getting me in the right direction.

Cool. I just wasn't sure if you had to do a whole bunch of mechanic stuff to it.

Thanks greenone. I do in fact have the cable set up you described. But the cable is still connected and the arm does move to shut the diverted door. I also can tell huge temperature changes when I go between hot and cold. I really only notice the heat when I drive down the road with the fan off. I can feel a warm "breeze" coming from the floor vents. I believe now the diverted door just isn't shutting all the way.

Thanks for the help. I'll hit you guys back if I can't get it.
