Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

x2. Known to fail on the WK. If you search the threads here, you'll find quite a bit about it, as well as some potential solutions.

This is, of course, assuming that you have the dual zone climate system

Re: heat comes out Hot on left, Cold on right

Yes, the blend door itself is likely not the issue but the blend door actuator motor and/or gearing.

This thread talks about the part number for the motor:

05 WK Blend Door Actuator Location

I believe the one behind the glove box is the one that everyone has problems with, and is the one that controls whether the passenger side gets hot or cold air.

Re: heat comes out Hot on left, Cold on right

I wrote a lot about the subject in the other forum.
Jeep is not manufacturing the part failing behind the actuator.

I have manufactured the part using a 3D printing service it can be found on ebay:

Jeep Grand Cherokee, Commander blend door lever Coupler actuator connecting part | eBay

You can find more information regarding the issue in the description of the part.
