Vw calls this a "pin", I would call this a blend door bushing.
Vw discontinued this thing. Why on earth they would discontinue it, I don't know. We fix a couple of these broken seems like each month or so, plus you need one whenever you do a heater core or a blend door repair.

So I have a friend who needed one and used a cad program to have them made. He modeled it off my last OEM new one that I had in stock. But I gave him some ideas to improve them, including removability, and improvements to ease installation. They are made with good abs plastic, better than the crappy stuff on ebay, and are each one tested in a heater box and on a lever to make sure of good fit.
He's trying to price them cheaper than other ones that are being made, but price may go up in future. I have helped with prototyping and installing them in a few cars for product testing. He asked me to sell them here as I have a reputation here and all ready sell and ship frequently. I have a bunch in stock and will usually ship same day.

Price war on Ebay means I dropped my price as well. Cost is now $22.5 shipped in continental usa. Shipping to Canada adds about $10

He does have these listed on ebay, for a higher price.

sold a bunch of these so far. Several folks sent me a emails saying they were happy with them. They are now on sale on ebay by the guy making them, but I'm still selling them at the lower cost here.

Here's one feedback I was sent.

Part worked great, it was a bit of a fight to get it inserted all the way but once it was, it’s nice and snug and shouldn’t back out like the OEM pin. Otherwise install was a breeze! Working great and has restored heating and cooling selection. Just had to make sure the blend door “fin” is centered in the slot before trying to insert pin. Fast shipping to Canada and great price!

Really awesome you guys are taking the time to fabricate parts that the dealer has decided to discontinue. Huge help and huge thank you!

Daryl.

I haven't bumped it up in about a month to so. Still selling these.

Nice! Hadn't looked in the vendor section for awhile, now I know where to get some more when my current supply runs out.

CoolAirVw August 8th, 2018 16:43

I had 4 when Vw stopped selling them.

Hi -

Got your blend door pin, but I think the door base is broken. When I stick my little finger up the hole, I can feel a loose flap, which can be pushed side to side. When I insert the pin, I engages with the door, but will not fully seat (about 1/8" gap) and quickly drops out after a few actuations of the lever. I have fiddled with it and occasionally gotten it to finally seat, but then the door only moves slightly - somehow the door is no connected!

What do you think is going on? Very frustrating. Would rather not pull the dash, etc.

Thanks,
Tom

The door will move around when the "pin" isn't in. The pin is what holds the door on the bottom. You'll need to wiggle the pin around till it seats fully. Not so easy to do sometimes if the door isn't perfectly in place. Keep trying you should be able to get it. There was one where I had to pull the dash though.

CoolAirVw August 21st, 2018 11:42

bump it up

OK. I'm going to try one more time, but I think the base of the blend door may be damaged. I've opened the front of the control box (behind the radio) and can fiddle with the blend door by reaching in. Maybe I need another set of hands to fiddle with both the blend door and the pin? I'm not clear on the geometry of the blend door base.

If I need to pull the dash, should I assume I'm also pulling the HVAC control box - or is it possible to get full access to the blend door (including removing it to repair the base) without removing the whole box?

Thanks!
Tom

i did have one several years ago tat the door was stuck off to the side and I had to pull the HVAC box.

CoolAirVw September 12th, 2018 07:07

lots of happy customers fixing their AC/Heat problems with this.

Does this fix the lever falling out of the door box bottom?

I've not been able to look at one that is not broken. Is it that some retaining barbs break off?

yes it fixes the lever falling out. Lever attaches to this part.

Yes there are two "retaining barbs" that break. original design has flimsy "retaining barbs". Ours is designed better and wont break there.
