Hello my name is Harley, I'm 16 and just bought my first Jeep. A 1997 (same year as I was born) TJ. I have a few question/problems

1. the A/C all of the sudden quit blowing out the vents and started blowing out the defrost vents. Doesn't matter where the control is set on. Any ideas what would cause this?

2. We took the windshield off to have the glass replaced. 2 of the star bolts wouldn't come out and stripped the head out. Can you buy these to replace them or is there something better to replace them with?

Love the site and look forward to learning.

1. Just chased down a similar problem. You may have a vacuum problem with the selector switch (ac/outside air/ defrost) or I had a crimp in the vacuum control line going from the selector switch module to the controller than switches between defrost and dash. I cut the crimp out and put a 6" piece of 1/8 heat shrink tubing over the two pieces. Works great.
2. Don't have my tools with me, but I think those are #55 TORX bolts. You should be able to find some in a good hardware store or auto shop. Try eBay too. You can also replace them with regular bolts. The real problem is how to get the bolts out after you stripped them. I know of 2 ways and neither are pretty.
