Yes I fixed the heater!
When I got home I went out to start the long tear down of the dash to find the heater problem. I was expecting the worse. And I found it only a 1/4 of the way in. YES!
You can see in the pic the cable is not on the control rod. I suspected that either the cable was broke or the keeper that holds the outside of the cable housing to the control rod moves the lever on the valve.
So it was a simple fix. I put it back together and tested it and now I won’t have to wear “long handles” every morning.
If only all of my Range Rover jobs were that easy to fix. If every one of the jobs were that easy, EVERYONE would own a Land Rover.
