heater control slider

So I changed my heater core hose the other day and didnt realize the clamp connecting to the firewall had to be facing in a position to not interfere with the little heater switch lever thing.

So I go inside and slide the heater control to hot. It's stuck halfway through because I didnt realize I didn't put the clamp on the hose right. I force it, I hear something SNAP. I correct the clam and try the slider and it doesn't slide properly. I look under the dash and notice when I move the tempurature slider it doesn't move the plastic lever it's connected to. If I move the lever manually it changes the air tempurature but the calbe from the heater lever is non functional.

So I'm trying to figure out what SNAPPED. Do I need a whole new climate control with lever. Do I need a new cable. Or was that snap just the cable POPPING out of something in the heater conrol that I cant visually see?

Anybody knows how it works?

Re: heater control slider

It likely broke the arm on the back of the control head.

Re: heater control slider

That or it broke the cable. My cable is broke and I have yet to fix it... I have to reach under the dash and move the lever whenever I want to switch from hot/cold haha. Just take the climate control unit out and have a good look at it to see what happened. Take your head unit out first and then you can get to the screws to take out your climate control unit, as far as I remember all you'll need is a phillips head screwdriver.

Most likely the plastic arm in the back of your climate control snapped. So it's a easy switch.
