mac.mogul My hvac controls work perfectly normal.

Snyper The knob breaks rather easily. I broke mine when I took off my dash. Now, it only blows on 4. If it is broken, you can find a new/used HVAC on eBay for around $15. At least, as of a couple days ago I saw one.

Slo86GT Eh, there were a lot of incentives to the 2013. Note was only $40/month more, insurance went DOWN $12/mo, and I gained leather, a manual transmission, full MFT Sync, slightly better fuel mileage, and 70k less miles. Not to mention a color I like even better!

2008 Ford Focus Tradeup? Really? Do you think so? I tell ya, if my fan stops operating perfectly, I am going to get a 2013 Focus so I won't have any issues with my car whatsoever for ever!

sleepyboy Oh, well you didn't say what car it was for and the only one in your sig was the 2013, guess I'll move it back.

Slo86GT Why'd you move it? This was on my 2008 SES and I traded up to a 2013 last week. :-P

sleepyboy Moved to the MK3 chat area, if it's under warranty I'd take it in.

Boyka67 I have the same problem... For mine it is more like 1,2, 3 1/2 then 4 lol. The culprit in question is the knob itself. I took off the dash and figured out that the knob is broken so it is essentially misaligned hence the "skip" from 3 to 4. As for a fix I'm guessing you would just have to replace the knob which I don't know if replacing just that is possible and not getting the whole bottom control unit for the ac controls. It is an easy fix. Just remove the dash and unplug all the connections, swap control units then plug everything back in. You could do a search for the dash removal if you do not know how. And search online or at a local junk yard for the part. Hope this helps.

Can't be normal, I know 3 worked when I first got the car. Any easy fix if this is a known issue?

Sorry if this is a dupe thread, I made a few searched with no hits before posting a new thread.

Is there some sort of pre-filter for the outside air to go through that could be plugged? Other than that don't know.
