Need help with temperature slider/selector
Posted 24 January 2005 - 12:25 PM
The slider that selects temperature for the HVAC (you know, blue for cold, red for hot) slid all the way to the top and got lodged there. It won't slide back down, except with force it (un-smoothly) goes about a half an inch. I took the dash pod apart and there are a few broken brittle plastic parts that probably contributed to the failure. However, it is attached to a cable, which I assume controls a diverter flap of some sort. That cable will not budge. So here's where I am with it -
- Maybe I just need a new switch because that will apply the proper leverage to the cable
- The cable is jammed/stretched
- The diverter flap is jammed/blocked
The air still comes through the vents, the fans switch works (as do the different speed...more or less), and the air direction buttons work. I just cannot change the temp of the air (and it's got to be that slider, b/c the engine temp/coolant is just fine, last time I checked anyway)
Does anyone have experience with this and/or fixed a similar problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
