85 300d dash removal

I was fixing my center vents on old smokey and after getting the vent to stay open I discovered that I got hot air when I turned on the AC. Max AC blows cold still, but the normal AC is hot. Took glovebox back out and found a wire connector with a little broken circuit chip. I have no idea where it goes. I took out the climate control panel and still could not find its plug in. I suppose I will have to take the dash out. Any ideas on where this plug in goes that effects the AC? Also, any tips to remove the dash if I have to do so?

Could this be the ambient temp sensor?

Don't Chrome them; polish them

Yes, that sounds like the ambient temp sensor. You dont have to remove the dash panel to replace that part.

Thanks, always get good results from this forum. I have the glove box out and the ACC panel out, where is the best place to locate this sensor?
