Need part for air blend door gear

My 06 XK Limited with dual air controls has a broken gear on passenger side of air blend doors. Actuator is OK but the gear that attaches to the end of the blend door shaft is broken and I have not been able to locate a part number or a source for the gear. It is NOT the big gear (P/N 68072190AA). It is the smaller gear that attaches directly to the end of the shaft.
From other threads I have seen, they indicated that this gear is no longer made and that a big chunk of the HVAC system must be purchased to get one. Hopefully that is not true. Would hate to try an track one down on a parts Jeep somewhere.

i have the same problem. i epoxied the shaft back to see if it will hold. i have yet to install the repaired part yet. i ended up propping my door to the outside air position by taking the blower out and accessing it from underneath.

see here: https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...tml#post500242

my issue is part #4 and the shaft sheared from the gear. I think #5 is the more common gear that breaks.

After I made my initial post, I discovered one for sale on eBay at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jeep-Grand-...53.m1438.l2649
Apparently this part is common with the 05-10 Grand Cherokee. The guy with the eBay listing is in Israel. He broke one and decided to use a 3D printer to make one. Now he is selling them on eBay for $40 plus S&H. Not cheap but it is the only source for one I can find other than a salvage yard. Apparently this part is marked as "Not serviceable" by Chrysler.

Neat so your problem is heat related on passenger side and the the fresh air / recirc door?

Problem is passenger side - no heat. No problem with recirculate door.
I have already fixed several doors when I first bought the XK. Driver side door had bad actuator - made a lot of noise. Replaced actuator and fixed that problem. The air recirculate door was also bad due to broken gear. Replaced the gear and fixed that. Now the passenger side door is broke due to broken gear. Either the design is bad or they used inferior materials in all the HVAC system.

Sounds like you got what you need. but if you arent in a hurry and dont want to pay the $40 I got a donor vehicle I could check for that part. Of course it may have the same problem but who knows.

and those damn recirc doors are always failing these. its been a problem forever even my wj had the issue, seems like jeep could do something better that wont strip/crack and fail.

As the OP, I wanted to report back after fixing my problem. I did order the part I needed from the guy in Israel and it works fine. Hated to pay $40 for it but there are not too many option since Chrysler decided we did not need this part and no longer sells it.
