Yet another blend door question.
So Ive got an 01 WJ Laredo, and I have the basic HVAC setup, no auto climate, no heated seats. I was reading up on some forums about the dreaded blend door issue and some forums talked about WJs with auto climate were the only ones affected by this problem, while others said all WJs had to deal with the issue no matter your HVAC setup. The reason I am asking is alot of guys that I have talked to with WJ have had a problem with the blend doors getting stuck every once in awhile or just breaking completely. Sice I heard about this issue I have been keeping my thermostat knob on either full A/C in the summer or full heat in the winter, due to the fact that I really dont want to end up tearing my dash apart to fix the issue if it ever breaks. I just want to settle the question once and for all, what WJs are effected by this issue?
