    Default Blendoor question

    Well, after 11 years the blendoor finally broke and I have no heat. It broke at the grey arm and the metal bar is hanging from the black arm. I can reach in through the glove box and grab it. I will only be driving the car for a few more weeks. Then it goes in storage for the winter. My question is can the blendoor be manually manipulated to give me the defroster heat until I am able to fix it?

    If you can manually operate it from the glovebox access the i would say yes. On mine ive left it on the cool spot and i still get heat through the defrost as long as the temp is set at 90.

    I hoked a coat hanger to the bar and pulled it. The heat comes out good. IF I could figure out how to wedge the grey arm to the full open position the heat comes out real good from the defrost and floor. I suspect the gray actuator has been broken for a long time because the car has not put out good heat from both positions for a long time. Thanks.
