Temp control assy.
Tear down the cable control end down by the heater box and the male end of a 1/4 inch ratchet will fit in the end of that flapper knob and will free it up quickly !! Ford would"nt or could"nt tell me that , but wanted to sell me a new box for almost "$500.00 ! REALLY ?? quick fix cost me nothing and found another "like new" cable at the salvage yard for $5.00 T.K.

|Tklein||Thanks for your reply; Amazing what you can fix when faced with an "OVERPRICED" factory part !! The male end of a 1/4 inch ratchet will fit in the end of that control if you tear it down to the box, and will free up that flapper quickly !! Yeah !! T.K.|

|NotReal||Sounds like you either have something gamed in there or it's rusted. Cause it should turn with little effort. And it is a pain in the bum to remove. Good luck.|

|Tklein||Ford wants to sell me a new heater box for 450.00$ NOT ! Just trying to figure out a way to get that knob to turn hot-cold ! Cable broke because knob on heater box would"nt turn ! So replacing the cable assy. won"t fix the problem, even though I need a new assy. ??????? T.K.|

I suppose a picture tells a thousand words. I've taken the connector off (red arrow). The black knob (green arrow) will not turn. Anyone know what this could be?

I've taken the cable off both sides (at the selector knob and underneath the drivers panel) and I can see that it is fine and turns OK.
It's the little stalk that the connector connects to under the driver's panel that won't turn.
Anyone know what I can do here? Is it possible to manually move the heat door more to the heating side? It's currently stuck on the cold side.

|RugbyMadNut||mmm... no one seen this before? I'm not seeing much on google searches so I think it might be rare enough.|

|RugbyMadNut||Just having a search on this... could it be an alignment issue. That is, the knob is "bottoming out" prematurely and needs to be adjusted?|
