2000 stuck on defrost

My lady's focus has been stuck on defrost and with the summer coming up I need to get it fixed. The knob turns but the selector is stuck on defrost. Is this a common issue? Does anyone have a DIY link or know how to fix it?

Here's one helpful thread:


Not an uncommon problem, make sure the shaft at the HVAC box end will move freely since things hanging up inside the box can be the cause of damaged cables/connections.

Searching "HVAC cable" will bring up a number of old threads.

This "sticky" at the top of this page is useful as well:

"Rubber Side Down"
