been away for a few months. Mom passed away on June 30.
So just getting back into my Subies. The 85 wagon heat stopped working. Problem started when I noticed that the temperature selection slide mechanism on the dash did not go all the way up to 'hot'. It seemed to be blocked by something. So I found the cable connection down by the driver gas pedal. The cable activates a thing-a-ma-jig. I moved the thing-a- ma-jig by hand, more towards the firewall (ie., more hot)... and then heard a popping sound like plastic breaking.
Does anyone know what that cable is actually moving? Is it something in the duct work or something on/in the heater core? The dash slide switch lever now moves all the way to 'hot'. But I still have no heat. Just blows cold air.
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks. Ron w.
