Question about Chrysler Cirrus

3 Answers

I have a 99 chrysler cirrus. The temperature blend control was not working properly. Felt like the cable or linkage was jammed. I gained access to the linkage and it appeared the gears that connect the cable to the door were out of line. While attempting to correct this problem, the gear to the blend door broke off. How do I replace this?

    The picture you provided doesn't show how to get access to the door or gear for replacement.

  • dfgodar Mar 14, 2011

    I do not have it out. Having trouble with getting access to remove it. Do you know how to access this?

  • dfgodar Mar 14, 2011

    No, it is the gear that turns the blend door inside attached to the duct work

  • dfgodar Mar 15, 2011

    Do you know how much it will cost for a professional mechanic to repair?

Hello
You can not just replace the gear, you must replace the entire control head. I assume you have this out of the car or loose from the dash. This part may no longer be available from the dealer so you may need to find a used one, You can do this by doing a goggle used part search, lots of sites will come up. Below is an example of one site that can help to locate used parts.

    Just to confirm this is the climate control head in the dash you broke correct? Please let me know ASAP. Thanks

    Hello. you must remove the entire dash to service the blend door, the gear broke because the door has warped and it is stuck, a common problem with all blend doors. You will absolutely need a factory service manual and a full set of hand tools and great deal of mechanical experience to do this job, if you want to attempt it you can subscribe to a site that can provide all the factory repair manuals as well as repair tip and factory bulletins for your car, if you are interested the URL to the site is www.alldatadiy.com

    I can only estimate the repair cost, but based on other similar repairs the cost will be around $1000.00 depending on local hourly labor rates which very widely, the east and west coasts are the highest.

Hi, my recommendation would be to check the yellow pages under automobile used parts and call the salvage yards in your area. The guys there usually know what vehicles would have the same part, but my manual says the following vehicles are relatively compatible:

Breeze, Cirrus, Sebring Convertible and Sedan, Stratus Sedan, 1999-2005

If you cannot find one at a wrecking yard, try ebay.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Hi, I'm sorry for the delay, I was working in the field today. Hopefully another expert was able to help you in my absence. If not, here is the procedure for accessing the blend door, with my apologies. It's behind the control panel. The trim pulls straight off, revealing the control panel screws. Remove the control panel, and you should see the blend door actuator.







    Fig. Temperature door cable (1), control module (2), A/C housing (3) and recirculation door cable (4)





    1. Place the ignition key in the OFF position before removing control module.

    Remove the trim bezel





    Fig. Typical trim bezel





    1. Remove the cluster hood bezel retaining screws in the trim bezel opening.

    2. Pry up the cluster hood bezel a few inches to expose the cubby bin/cigar lighter bezel screws.

    3. Remove the cubby bin/cigar lighter bezel and wiring.

    4. Remove the control module retaining screws.

    5. Remove the control module and disconnect the wire connectors.

    6. Release the temperature control cable retaining clip from the top of the control module. Retain the clip for future use. Then disconnect the temperature control cable.

    7. Disconnect cable at A/C housing.

Replace blend door in 07 Chrysler sebring


The most likely problem is either the blend door actuator or a broken blend door itself.
Both are only accessible by complete removal of the instrument panel(dash).
The blend door actuator can be tested with a Chrysler factory scan tool hooked up to the DLC(data link connector). If blend door actuator is working when tested with the factory scan tool, then blend door itself is at fault.
The only other way to test the blend door actuator is to test for 12v at connector, but you would have to remove the instrument panel in order to gain access to the actuator

Very little heat output


Sounds like you need to replace the air temperature control blend door and blend door actuator. This job requires the entire dash be removed in most cases.

Blend door postion selector


According to the book, I'm showing a mode actuator and a blend door actuator next to it. Some models use cables and some use small electric motors to move the doors.
Are you sure you are working on the right door ?

Chrysler cirrus, heater blows warm through dash but cold on defrost and floor


If the heater is working correctly, and the air temp does not stay the same coming from different outlets, the problem could be a blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out the vents.

Check the blend door cable for proper attachment to the control panel and to the blend door. Try opening the door manually to see the you can get hot air out. If not, the door may be broken inside the heater box. If yes, correct/adjust the cable attachment for proper operation.

No heat when you set the controls for heat. AC and blower are working fine.


Possible bad thermostat, or your blend door is not working properly.

Heater temp control does not open heater door


Your temperature control cable, knob or blend door actuator is (are) defective. Lower the glove by pulling the side tabs in and allowing it to hang down. Now you will have access to determine if your temperature control is defective or your blend door is not opening properly.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus: I was just informed by my


I'm reading the instructions at autozone.com, and I don't see anything about removing the dash. You do have to pull out the trim around the control unit and unscrew the unit to get to the back of it, but I don't see why you can't get to all the cables and doors by sticking your head under the dash. If I were you, I would do it myself. This would be about a 1 hr job for me. Maybe a little longer if I was new at it...let me know if you want me to copy the instructions and send them on.
