Remove Fan Control
Dismantle Fan Control
Reassemble Fan Control
Place smaller spring and ball bearing into the plastic disk, and place the assembly onto the circuit base. There is a hole in the side of the plastic disk the spring and ball go into, as seen in the picture above. The spring goes in first. You will have to hold them in place while you carefully slide them onto the circuit base, with the ball nesting into the notches as seen below.
Insert the retaining pin into the center of the plastic disk. It should click into place.
Remove AC and Recirculation Buttons
Remove AC/Recirc Buttons from Housing
Reassemble AC and Recirculation Buttons
Push the parts into the housing.
Remove Slider Light Bulbs and Wiring
Remove the wires from the panel. Just pop them free from the two clips along the bottom of the panel.
Dismantle Temperature & Vent Selector Sliders/Cable Controls
Pull on control face to pop slider knobs loose. Shouldn’t take too much force, and it’s easier than trying to pull/pry on the knobs themselves. At this point the whole control face should come off.
Dismantle cable controls. The metal bars will free up if you line them up with the center of the slider motion, and back slightly (pay attention to the notch at the pivot point). With the bar off, the plastic piece underneath will come free (the one on the underside has to be rotated to one extreme position to line it up with an opening and remove). The piece the knob came off of will also lift off at this point, but will probably stick in place because of lubricant.
Reassemble Temperature & Vent Selector Sliders/Cable Controls
While holding the cable controls together, slide the controls back through the HVAC controls face. Reinstall the knobs for the sliders to hold everything together.
