    I am trying to get the A/C and heater working correctly in the crew cab. The white plastic connector on the main switch door is broken. I have tried to use one I made from wood and looked for other options. In the searches I found it is an approximate $1.50 part but nobody knows what I am trying to get. Even when I show them the part. Haven't tried a dealer yet but when I went to get the bolts with clips to hold the core box on I was told they were discontinued. I found a bolt so all I need is a solution to fix this stupid plastic piece. Help please.

    Buehler? Buehler?
    Anyone? Anyone?

    Surely (and yes I will stop calling you Shirley) someone else has run into this problem besides Spickler and a banned former member.

    Please!

    Geez, I have half a dozen of them somewhere in the garage, courtesy of my local GM contact. If I get a chance to scour the workbench for them, you're welcome to one for free. PM me and remind me, as I'll be helping a fellow CK5er build his fence for most of the day tomorrow. :thumb:

    Thanks guys. I did try the NAPA and they looked at me like they were retarded (not to insult the mentally handicapped). I came up with a sort of solution but I have not done it yet due to possible clearance issue. Will check and see.

    Paul, I am going to PM you with a pic also. Thanks.

    Were you able to fix the a/c yet? Just curious what it was.

    Not yet. I haven't looked into it much as far as the A/C itself. Since I had the heater core out I removed all the ducts and vents and cleaned them all. Boy you sure let the dirt get in there real good.:rolleyes: It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be with the way you described the doors and the dust falling out but it is all ovver the firewall and in every nook and cranny. That is the reason a 45 min. to 2 hr. project has taken about 6 weeks to complete. I figured I only wanted to remove everything once.
