        4 1997 Wrangler - BreaydanG

        perfect fit for red vacuum tube line

        Great that its original size but if it was made out of metal it wouldn't break again. I ordered one extra so i can take it to a machine shop to see if they can duplicate it

        Broke a day later

        I installed it was working great for about a day I finally had front vents again and everything was working fine then it broke the next morning after installing it cause it’s made out of plastic there needs to be a metal option cuase the plastic obviously doesn’t hold up

        5 1997 Wrangler - RickN

        One $20 lever saved me $1500.

        Sounds pretty incredible but that’s what the dealer wanted to repair my no defroster problem. The dealer no longer supplies this lever separately. Only with the complete heater box now. 532 bucks for the box. And almost 1k to replace it. It took most of a weekend but it’s done and I have a great working defroster for 20 bucks. Thanks ET for making that lever available.

        5 1997 Wrangler - BgS

        Made the a/c blow out the center dash

        My defrost and feet vents actually work- the air blows out. This part is for the body/main vents, the one that connects to the vacuum body w/ the Red wire. If it weren't for bad engineering from Jeep back in 1997, these little plastic pieces wouldn't have broken to begin with. Glad they are only $15.
