Temperature select knob stuck

Hi All,

New member, first post!

Thank you all for the wealth of info available on this site. I've picked up so much knowledge here.

I recently bought a 2002 1.6 Petrol saloon. There were a couple of little jobs that needed doing and thanks you your site I now know how...

1) Blower only works on number "4". I now know that this is probably the blower motor resistor pack. I've ordered a replacement and will fit it once it arrives. I've also ordered a new pollen filter to change out at the same time. I read that this can sometimes cause the motor to overwork and blow the resistor. I'll also remove and clean/lube the blower motor.

2) I could not find anything for this issue. The temperature select knob will only turn about 15 degrees (angle that is) from all the way to the left (cold) to slightly less cold before it gets stuck (I don't want to force it). If you imagine a clock face it will only turn from 9 o'clock to 11 o'clock.

Do I need to get in there and have a look at the temperature control cable and the temperature blend door?

Are there any guides for this?

Could it be something else, are there any known issues with this function?

Thanks for looking!
