Yep... lukewarm sounds just right. The blend doors have rotated due to no resistance, weight, and gravity to a perfect "middle" position. Yay!

I doubt CPO will cover it. Call a service advisor and specifically tell them you know what the problem is and wondering if it's covered. Don't accept a "we got to diagnose and see" answer. They can enter this problem into their system and specifically tell you... at least a helpful service advisor can. That will save you a $100 diagnostic fee that you can put to much better use for this if it's not covered.

I was quoted anywhere from $65 to $125 from independents to do the labor if I supplied parts. I just decided one afternoon when I had a few hours to spare that I'd do it myself. It wasn't that hard at all.

Most Jeep dealers will want to replace the entire air box since it comes with all new actuators and gears already installed. That's a $1200 repair and they will tear the dash out all the way to the firewall. Definitely NOT for me. Nobody is going to do that to my "baby".

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Re: 2011 Jeep GC driver A/C problem

I just did this repair myself on my 2011 GC and took a bunch of pix so I will do a write up. It was super simple and my dealership had the gear in stock. Cost me a whopping $3.69 and some time out of my day.

I have going on 20 years experience working on automotive interior electronics and knocked it out in less than an hour. But it is still super simple. I even bought an extra gear and zip tied it to one of the dash supports in case it happens again I have a back up!

Trekbuddy, did you get a chance to do that write up on the drivers side gear and actuator?
