I looking for information on a project that I've been putting off for
over a year now.
The little arm that goes into the valve box for the heater/AC broke off
on the flap that controls the front window defrost vents. It appears to
be stuck about 5% open. (eg. if I close all the other vents and turn the
fan on the industrial ventilation mode [setting 4] it only take about 10
minutes to defog the front window; living in the damp NW this does not
promote safe driving <grin>)
What I'm hoping for, is that someone can tell me what it takes to take
the dashboard apart (No bentley here, currently -$$$) and if there is
some other way to fix this than removing that box and completely
disassembling it to either replace the flap or graft a new control arm
I know I probably just stated that exact solution, but with an alarm,
cell phone, and custom stereo in that dash, I do not relish disassembling
it. I found that if I stand on my head in the footspace, with my feet
sticking out the sunroof, ;-) I can see up to where the control wire is
hanging, and where the flap arm should be.
Any comments, advice, .....snide comments?
