    Hard to believe that the box was glued shut by black goo, that was made of melted rubber insulation. That caused the plastic gears on the box to fail.:eek:
    Can you say manufacturing defect !

    True that!

    The mode door wouldn’t even want to move by hand once I got the box out of there.

    I think there was a short sighted decision made by an engineering team at some point. o_O

    Hopefully I won’t have to do that job again until 2029. ;)

    I have verified that it is in fact leaking. Going to need to replace it. Also, I am told that it seems to be stuck on defrost. No heat to the floor. Fun stuff.
    Also, doesn't this thing have a low coolant light? I don't drive it. My girlfriend does. I drive a WJ, daughter drives a Compass.
