Mopar part 05143192AA strikes again

This is a common repair on a Jeep WK WH XK XH

Mopar part 05143192AA strikes again. The scene is set, you get in your Jeep, its cold so you turn up the thermostat to max. There is almighty clunking chunking flapping clattering noise! Has my gearbox failed? Has the engine failed? WTF!

What was that?

Have no fear its a little box in the HVAC system that has just shat itself. The little black HVAC blend control air door actuator or Mopar part 05143192AA for Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee has broken. The part should last around 15 years of regular daily use. It did on my Jeep.
