Climate control sticking

My prelude sat in storage for 8 months and the knob on the climate control won't slide over to the warm section. It will go over temporarily but then slides back to the middle on its own. The a/c blows cold as hell but here in OH I need some heat ASAP! My guess is that mice made their way into the ducts and set up shop and is keeping the blend door from moving. Anyone have any experience/suggestions on digging into the dash to get access?

Re: Climate control sticking

Go under your hood and youll see a lever and bar that's about in the same spot as the cc that goes into the firewall. Once you find that have some slide it over to heat as the other either pushes or pulls ( can't remember ) lol on the lever. Its in a awkward spot so look closely. It's stuck because that bar underneath the hood rusted into place. Happened to me awhile ago an took a while to find out how to do it.

Re: Climate control sticking

If it is a rodent chewing on stuff. You want to watch out for those things. They will tear stuff up. I've seen rodents chew threw a whole harness that connects to the main fuse box. And they will cause a mess period. So watch out man, these things mean serious business. Here's some pictures of customer cars with unknown stuff living under the hood and interior.




All the shredded paper was from a mice.
