yukong is on a distinguished road

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for their help. Before I was able to get to try the "nipple" repair, I had another problem develop. My AC blower began working intermittently. Sometimes it would come on, sometimes not. And when it wouldn't, it usually would after a few minutes to as many as 20 minutes later.

Well, last Saturday, I tried the 'nipple" fix, and it worked. The vent issue was resolved. Just like you guys said. Cut out the connector, and spliced the vaccum tubes togther. It was great, the air came out the right vents, and I was able to cycle through all the various positions and everything worked as it should.

However, I still had the blower problem. So, I came back here to the Bonneville Club forum and researched the issue. Found a thread telling how to test whether it was the blower motor, or the blower command module. I went back out, started the car, and the blower wouldn't come on. So I took a hammer and tapped the blower motor, and it came right on. So I went to Autozone and found one new, with warranty, for $48.00 with tax. Last night, I put it in, and now it works great. That wasn't as bad a job as I thought it would be. Took me about 45 minutes, and no blood was drawn. So, all in all, when I can do a job without blood, in a short period of time, it is a good job.

Anyway, thanks to everyone here for there help and input. You guys saved me over a $1,000.00 on this deal. The dealer wanted $700 to replace the controller (which was obviously fine) and another $300 or so to replace the blower motor. The vaccum tube cost me about $2.00 and the blower was $48.00 so all this was done for $50.00 and about 2 hours of my time. Not a bad deal.

Thanks again. You guys are great.
