Dumb question, but is there a good diagram of this HVAC system? Would be good to know exactly what screws/clips to remove before blindly unfastening everything I see.

Well, I think I found the problem...er, well, at least one problem: the plastic gear for the air-source flap (Blend doors?/A/C Air Actuator?) was broken.

I took the motor off and the sensor,...

Yeah, looks like I'll have to break into the HVAC system to check the doors.

I did do a "calibration" of the system, but no change in cooling performance for me.

FYI for those that don't...

Well so changed the expansion valve....which I now remember that I replaced that when I had the compressor replaced 3-4 years ago. So recharged the system, but absolutely no change in cooling...

Okay, the expansion valve seems like the next thing to check as the blend door seems to be working as I can go from slightly cool to hot in pretty good increments. I hear the air flow sound change...

I assume you mean the ability to direct air out of the desired vent? If so, then yes, all fan speeds work, the AC kicks in when I hit the AC button, and I can select feet, feet/head, head, front...

Ah, good points. I suspect the shop that replaced the compressor didn't vacuum down enough.

I have a vacuum, proper ac gauge/ line kit, and a bottle of good refrigerant, so I'll give that a...

Only "moderately cooler" air conditioning

So I've never been impressed with my ladies Laredo's HVAC system. Currently the max fan, circulating air, with AC on is only slightly cooler than ambient; definitely not suitable for 90+F (32 C)...

Oh! I haven't looked into prices of WJs, so I never thought you'd be able to get that much out of them, I was thinking more like $1500 with those miles. Well if you can get $4k+ for it, then it...

Yeah, I made the assumption of fuel costs based upon what they are here in eastern Michigan, so it is possibly worse than many on the forum. Even if fuel costs were the same, assuming 14 mpg for...

I've been using the 5w40 Rotella T6 ever since my DPF delete. You can probably use the T6 w/o the delete, but considering it isn't low ash, I bet it'll cause your DPF to re-gen more often to burn...
