Re: Gen 4 climate control issue help ASAP

it is recommended to use a dry graphite powder. Take the cable completely out of the car and while holding it vertically "pump" some into one end and keep working it in until the cable is re-lubricated.
Using grease or any kind of wet spray is only a temporary fix and will do more harm than good as it will attract dirt and quickly seize up the cable.

If this doesn't work you should just buy a new one.

Re: Gen 4 climate control issue help ASAP

sorry, your first post was not clear at all...

go get a disposable small spray bottle and some isopropyl alcohol. Lay a shop towel or some unwanted towel underneath the area and Spray the alcohol around the hinged area to clear out any debris, dirt, and old grease. Then use a silicon based lubricant like white grease and apply around the moving parts, hing area, etc.

Hobby shops are probably the cheapest place to find this: http://www.oakridgehobbies.com/defau...lubricant.html

Re: Gen 4 climate control issue help ASAP

i have the same problem, but im probably just gonna say **** it, i wanna take my A/C out eventually, and ill leave the climate control in and I moved that sliding piece to the heat position for when im cold, but in summer i like having all the windows open, i dont like air conditioning, it makes me get sick cause im sensitive to the freon. and air conditioned air is actually harmful to anyone who uses it.... thats why they kept making certain types illegal, but the types we still use are still harmful, just less harmful, so ill enjoy my fresh air lol
