Hard to be sure, but:

94-97 HEATER BOX CABLE Part #2879544 - seems to be the cable from the control knob to the box. This is the cable that slipped on my car. The new cable was redesigned with a molded end that did not slip.

94-95 4cyl TEMPERATURE CONTROL CABLE Part #2879542 - seems to be the cable from the box out to the valve under the hood. This is the cable I lengthened by slightly uncoiling at each end.

Hope this helps.

I have this same problem in my '94 and found this post very useful - thanks bobsnow!

Attached are some pics of the parts from Honda, including the rubber firewall gasket.

That last one of the rubber gasket is a little hard to see because of the glare, but the last three numbers are 000.

..had the AC in 91 coupe AC looked at. They did a check and said it had a leak in line going to fire-wall. I asked them to point out the line...but forgot to get the exact location due to embarrassment when I said I can't afford the fix right now by them. I could call and ask, but since I might not take it to them..they wont help. I used a UV light and it showed nothing when I ran the AC. I really don't want to pay $400 for something I might be able to do. How do I find the leak?
