[200q20v] Re-Circ Door Spring & DIY Alignment...

Hello All,

Couple of quick questions for the experts:  Can somebody verify the correct
installation location of the notorious HVAC recirculating door return
spring?  I checked Mr. Mockery's website and the diagram indicates that the
spring connects both the recirc. and fresh air doors.  Am I interpreting
this correctly? One end of mine is broken and therefore just hanging

I am attempting the DIY alignment and have been unable to rotate the tie rod
adjuster despite loosening the jam nuts.  Bentley mentions loosening the
'clamps' but not too sure what/where they are;  I suspect they are these
collar-looking things that the jam nuts clamp down on.  Looks as though the
female threaded sections have axial slots in them which allow a deflection
of the threaded 'tube' as the collar crimps down on it.  Did not spend a lot
of time on it but that's what it look like.  Any
recommendations/clarification?  Thanks.
