    NO! The images are no longer showing. I could really use this thread if, by chance, the orginator could repost the images. PLEASE!?!

    Dozer, thanks to Swetrid I found and fixed my problem. It was the valve under the hood. Its on the passenger side right above the valve cover. 1 hose in, 1 hose out. It had a small dia.(gray) vacumn hose connected to it. Even though the arm would move, I noticed that the screw that attached it to the valve did not. Like Swetrid said, it will rust to s*^^. Rpled for 20 some bucks and now it is blasting heat. By the way the valve is on a mounting plate which is then bolted to the valve cover, just bend it down to get to scews.

    I have the same issue but the pictures are no longer linked?
    Can someone tell me how to manually close the door for heat? I just need heat for now.

    Hey BigRondo thanks for the help... I got mine fixed though there are a few differences between the 02 and the 04 but without your pictures and walk through who knows how long it would have taken.
    Thanks again!

    Not really sure how to move the blend door by hand. Sorry. :(

    When the actuator arrives you can use this thread for changing it.
