Chevy Equinox And Pontiac Torrent Temperature Door Replacement
A common problem for having no heat or cold air coming from the vents of your Chevrolet Equinox or Pontiac Torrent is a broken temperature door. This part is located behind the dash board. It is controlled the heater A/C head to adjust the temperature you want. See before and after pictures below.
Most of the time you will notice this as the weather and temperature changes. You will then try to change to A/C of heat, and find out that there is no change in the air coming from the vents. When you take your vehicle into the shop or dealership you are amazed at the cost to repair this problem. The part only costs about $29, but the labor to remove the entire dash and related components is extremely expensive.
Replacing a broken Heater Air Conditioning Temperature Control Door in the Dash. Not for the do-it-yourselfer mechanic.BEFORE
Can they damage your car by replacing it.
With the amount of work involved in this repair, it is possible to damage something along the way.
anybody can damage your car if they hack their through it! I have done these. I
wouldn't try this at home as the dash does have to come out and the heater hoses
have to be disconnected along with the air conditioning has to be emptied and
disconnected so the heater box can be taking out. These pictures are pretty
Is g.m going to put them selfs in the hole again and get the tax payers to bail them
out again for building junk and not be responsible enough to repair even safety
problems with these things that any other company would recall???
Mine just went in to the shop for this repair. $1472.
I have talked to so many people who have this same problem with these heating doors. If G M don't get their act together soon, we'll have to pull the engine just to change the oil. I'm going to trade this piece of junk!!!
Add me to the list of 2006 Torrent owners with the same problem.
Time for a recall! Just had this exact same problem.
I'm having the same problem with heat now but My problem started with AC first after I made them fix that problem I now have no heat I think they hack the job so they can get me of there hair I think I have AC will see when the worm weather comes. 2006 Equinox
We just got a notice this week that GM is extending the warranty on the HVAC temperature valve on our 2006 Torrent for 10 years or 120K miles. So far we haven't had any problems. They also sent a Customer Reimbursement Request Form if you had already paid for a repair.
i called 2 gm dealers in last week with the same heat and air problem. My wife froze all winter and burn up all summer. They got serial no. Said to bring it in. One said it would be over a 1000 bucks to fix. got a letter from gm that day. Called another gm dealer said bring it ,they said letter wont cover my problem. Because air blows out the vents even tho its hot air now and cold air in the winter. i see why foreign cars r taken over.
My heat does not work and my ac works too good. Help. Blows 30 degrees no matter what!
I HAVE A 2006 PONTIAC AND JUST TALKED TO GM TODAY. THEY SAID THAT I MAY HAVE A FRACTURED HEAT VALVE WHICH IS COVERED BUT IF ITS A BROKEN BLEND DOOR SORRY FOR YOUR LUCK. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT WE AS CONSUMERS CAN DO ABOUT THIS BULL-
