What is this piece called?

can anyone help me identify the name or part number for the piece in the attached photo?

It is a clip that holds the cable for the blend door. A mechanic snapped mine off when doing some work so now the cable to my blend door slips off every time I open or close it...there are no identifying marks on it. I have tried google searches for blend door retainer clip, etc. but nothing... any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

When you say "blend door", do you mean the Fuel Filler Door? Do you need some plastic part that is attached to the release cable for the Fuel Filler Door?

That's most likely be a jy part or a zip tie fix!

The blend door to control hot and cold air mixture, right behind the glove box.

Unfortunately when I found this problem the mechanic had zip tied it, which didn't provide a long term fix :)

You can't buy it new. Go to the junkyard. There are plenty of good ones near Houston. At worst, you'd have to go to the highway between Silsbee & Kountz to visit Armor J.

You will end up having to buy an entire new box for it, or go to the junk yard and rob one

Yep had the same thing happen to mine, only I was the mechanic. They get brittle and snap off after awhile. I went to the junk yard and replaced the whole box, cable and all. I wouldn't even bother looking for a new one. Tie Wraps won't work for long. I tried that first.

If the "mechanic" broke it then he should replace it or offer you the money to replace it, listen to Steve83...


Good Luck ~
