What would you like to do?
in a body shop the blend door or panel is an adjacent part next to a new/repaired body of the vehicle. It is also painted to give a more uniform color to the vehicle with fresh/new paint and help to blend in with the rest of the car.

Thanks for the feedback!
On my 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan it is under the driver side dash neer the center console. No dash disassembly required to access. Three screws and a cannon plug very easy… to replace.
1998 was a crossover year for Jeep and two different HVAC systems were used. Check the HeaterTreater Ebay listings or web site at www.heatertreater.net to determine whic…h system you have and an effective replacement kit. cgallen
The repair following normal Chrysler processes, using OEM parts is a difficult and costly repair. Check the shortcut method and hardware at heatertreater.net.
This response is from the HeaterTreater team. I'm not sure why you would want to replace one of our products, but if there is a problem we will bend over backwards to ma…ke it right. Also there is a video posted on YouTube or our web site that shows the installation process for our blend door product. Search "heatertreater" to find either or go to our "my page" for links.
This is a common problem- the heater blend doors. These are motorized doors about the size of an index card that control whether hot or cold air comes from the vents. Th…ere may be two independent doors or both doors may operate together depending on whether you have dual zone temperature controls. They are located in the heating/air conditioning module, a long black plastic apparatus about the size of a golf bag that contains the heater core, the air conditioning evaporator, the blower motor, the blend doors, and all the other parts to make hot or cold air and direct it to the needed location. Replacing the blend doors is a job for the experienced home mechanic. The proper job requires you remove the steering column and entire dashboard, drain both the coolant and air conditioning refrigerant, and remove large, heavy pieces from the car. A detailed explanation is located at wjjeeps dot com. I did the job myself and saved a bunch of money. You can too! Good luck!
it is in a part the dealer knows as the midcase if you dont have heat order the part and install it it will fix your problem
Blend Door Problem Your problem sounds like the common blend door problem on the Ford Expeditions, and Ford Explorer. The door is on a vertical axis and …when it breaks, it can swing back and forth randomly giving heat or AC or nothing. The difference on acceleration is the force placed on the door swinging it one direction. You can check the operation by fully opening the glove box, removing the actuator motor on top of the plenum box and examining the blend door axle. Pictures of the common fail signature are available on the heatertreater.net web site. There are several "free" fixes that mostly are worth what you pay for them. The solution on the web site is solid and proven over hundreds of vehicles and will resolve the problem once and for all.
The blend door actuator is under the glove compartment near the blower motor. You will see a wire attached to it and will need a small nut driver to remove it.
in a part of the air box called the midcase it is behind the dash and the dash and air box must be removed and the ac must be discharged if you need the part call t…he dealer and ask for the mid case the know the part well
Behind the radio and ac/heater control unit
The temp blend door is located in the HVAC assembly behind the dash assembly. The dash assembly must be removed to gain access.
Temperature Actuator Replacement LH Removal Procedure 1.Remove the left instrument panel insulator (this is the carpeted cardboard piece above the brake pedal that connects… to the knee bolster) 2.Remove the knee bolster (this is the pad below the steering column) 3.Remove the steering column filler (this is the metal piece behind the knee bolter, under the steering colum) (4 larger bolts, and I think 2 smaller ones) 4.Disconnect the electrical connector from the temperature actuator. 5.Remove the HVAC Con (HVAC Control) MiniFuse #27 from the IP electrical center. 6.Remove the mounting bolts from the temperature actuator. 7.Remove the temperature actuator. Installation Procedure 1.Position the temperature actuator, then align the slots in the electric actuator driver to the flats on the temperature valve shaft. 2.Slide the electric actuator driver onto the shaft, while aligning the actuator locating hole to the forward alignment pin on the HVAC module case. The actuator driver should completely seat onto the temperature valve shaft and the mounting holes should be flush with the mounting bosses on the HVAC module case. 3.Install the mounting bolts to the temperature actuator. Tighten the temperature actuator bolts to 1.5 N·m (13 lb in). 4.Connect the electrical connector to the temperature valve electric actuator. 5.Install the knee bolster. 6.Install the left instrument panel insulator. 7.Install the HVAC Con (HVAC Control) MiniFuse #27 from the IP electrical center.
