This is a key point. Although it sounds like your airmix actuator, check this FIRST.

Just as a "Make sure you understand" (aka, beating the dead horse) there are 2 different "flappers" involved here. One will decide which vents the air comes into the cabin throgh (defrogger, dash, or floor). The other contols the mix of hot and cold air. I'm betting the second one is stuck. I'm pretty sure that'* the what the link I found for you is referring to. Behind the glove box sounds like the correct area for the heat "flapper thingy" based on every other car I've had to fight with....

Check out that link I found - If I read it right, you should be able to get to it through the glove box. Or at least the dash....

Get under the car? For what? Steve.....READ THE LINK MOS POSTED! The airmix actuator is actually above the gas tank. You have to drop the tank to get to it.



















Are you going to drop your tank or are you going to go read and search to find out I'm messing with you? This is VERY frustrating Steve. You've been here long enough to know how this works. Quit making people do the hard work for you when you know how to do it. John shouldn't have posted that link for you.
