Question about 2001 Lincoln LS
New A/C comp., dryer and dual-heat control valve under hood. I have New Exp. vlv. but may not use... Depends on how deep I may have to go into Dash! On to Pass. compartment; Beginning to investigate blend door actuator issues, I removed glove box, detaching 'assist cable bracket'*(as labled in removal diag.(part of 06010)) in process, only to hear bracket drop out from behind box and fall on floor. No biggie, but after removing g-box liner I see a 1 in. dia. x 5 in. long spring loaded/dampening tube with a blk. string coming out of it threaded thru a guide bracket (other 1/2 of prev. mentioned bracket) then the string hangs, frayed and broken.(not unlike My nerves, BTW bracket falling indicates string was already broken, I didn't do it as Spouse claims! Ha... I digress.) I can see a nipple on the side of plenum where it is supposed to feed thru. I "EngineMan'sume" it connects to something that needs assistance!? A Blend Door, most likely. I can not find any other mention of this 'assist mechanism', drawings depicting, or clearly describing how this works inside the plenum. A plenum exp view or blend door drawing would be Great! Any info before I dive into this dash will be appreciated! Thanks in Advance! ~PPB

You will have to remove the entire dashboard. Lincolns OnLine has a large database of information regarding TC's of all years. Here is a link to instructions on how to replace the BDA.
