hello, i looking for some help. im looking for ways to replace the lower blend door lever for the defroster on a 2005 jeep tj. the part im looking for is close to OEM Part 5014108AA but for a 2005. the years they made the part was from 2002-2006 its stopping my defroster to work ( blow ) when i turn on the vents it comes threw all the vents rather than the vent that is selected. in the parts manual i found 5013743aa but that is a discontinued part. any ideas or suggestions on how to overcome/ fix this?

Damn, I just looked all over Google, and I can't find a single replacement blend door lever for 2002-2006 TJs. I can find plenty of OMIX-ADA replacements for 97-01 models, but that's it.

Hopefully someone with more info will chime in, but I suppose you could always check https://car-part.com

It searches every wrecking yard within X miles of your zip code. Find a local place with a TJ they are parting out and the blend door lever off of it. Guarantee you'll get one this way.

Yeah, this is news to me as I personally had looked for one until now. Makes me wonder why OMIX-ADA makes replacements for the earlier TJs, but not the later models. I'm actually curious as to what the difference are between them as well.

You'll also be able to get a used one from http://www.daveysjeeps.com as well.

Everyone wants to sell the hvac unit all together

It blows my mind no one makes a replacement part, especially given as simple as it is. You could probably 3D print this part to be honest.

Any luck?
Almost ordered one for previous models, then realized that they are different... mind blowing.
If nothing, Im going to get JB weld for plastic and hope that will do the trick.

I have to admit that I'm spoiled by Mercedes. Parts availablity for older cars is excellent. And by "older", I don't mean 15 years - that's practically brand new! They have a special department dedicated to parts for older cars - I just ordered a transmission kick-down cable a few months back for mine - its 35 years old and the price was very reasonable! I'm a bit taken aback as a new Jeep owner that certain parts are virtually impossible to source.

I never knew the feeling of being spoiled till i got into Jeeps.
I will either grow old, happy, and tell plenty of "back in my days" stories ... or snap, build a time machine, and go back in time to the moment i thought of trying this "Jeep" thing to evaporate myself with a plasma cannon.

Don't get me wrong - I've wanted a Jeep for decades, and finally got one and am loving it! I'm just a bit taken aback at parts procurement problems on a vehicle I consider "almost new".

Sorry to revive an old thread, but has anyone been able to find one of these yet? I'm on the hunt for one, and I can't even find a picture of it. Mine is still installed, so I don't even know what it looks like to know that I found the right one. I can only see the part that doesn't insert into the HVAC system. Thanks!

I gripe on here about this very thing from time to time, and it never fails that someone will come along to defend whoever owns jeep on that particular day on how most or all manufacturers stop supporting replacement parts after 10 years or so. That's just not been my experience. I'm up to something in the mid 30s of cars I've owned and only one was less than 10 years old...Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Ford, GM, BMW, multiples of each...none of them had the parts availability issues I run into with a 2006 jeep on a regular basis. I don't think it's coincidence that none of them (other than the 3 TJs) were from Chrysler.
