I finally found out (or at least I think I have) what was my hot air coming into the cabin all the time issue. This flap in the blower housing has a broken arm. Do you think a plastic weld would work or does anyone have one they can sell me ASAP? Any thoughts?

You can try J-B Weld but I would order new levered door from Difatta they had some in stock.

Temp door piece (LID) WITH LEVER 60801495
Adjoining door lid without lever 60801505
connecting lever between two doors 60801494

Yes, try to find a replacement ...

but, if you really want to try repair it ... I have used a short section of 1/2" copper pipe and a L-shape metal arm (still on my "to be" rescued car) ...

ha.. that's exactly what happened on my car. I sucessfully fixed it. I glued it with epoxy and then drilled a hole from the arm to the flap and put a screw through them. Stronger than before!

Of, if you can't wait or don't want to spend money for new one, try finding a wrecking yard who has a SAAB 9000. It uses exactly same part.

Thanks for all the information guys. I'm thinking mine can be fixed with a screw but just in case it doesn't work, Jason has a used one he can send me but he suggests replacing the padding on it. Can any one suggest what material to use instead?

I didn't think of the Saab angle, I will check with the local Saab specialist here in Vancouver. Thanks.
Cheaper through me or difatta. OE saab is around $40.
The doors from me are around $24.00, or you can have the whole used door set I have for free. plus shipping and a $50 handling charge...LOL! haha kidding!
