Exclamation Heater blend cable disconnected?

Hey Jeep friends,

My heater has not been working since I purchased my 1997 Jeep TJ. The heater core is new, and the fans all blow. There is vacuum in the lines.

When I went under the passenger side of my dash I noticed that the cable that is supposed to move when you turn the heat up is not connected to anything. I cant seem to find where it connects to; it is almost like there is a part missing. Any help is greatly appreciated! The cable just slides in and out when you adjust the temperature of the air. What am I missing here??

To clarify, air blows through all the different vents, but is not getting hot. Most likely because the door could be stuck to the "cold" position. Just not sure what part I am missing or how to re-connect the cable.

Looking at the pic it looks like the actuator arm was broken and the PO tried to fix it by attaching a screw into the blend door. Try moving to blend door by turning the screw that is shown in the pics. you may get away with using a screw with a larger head until you can order a new actuator arm. Sorry I dont have a part number for the new arm.

Thank you! I was able to turn the screw a little bit and now the air is heating up. Its a temporary fix, but the Jeep doesn't have A/C anyways so it doesnt really matter I suppose.
