Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 97 jetta 2.0....i was trying to change the temperature knob from cold to hot but realized it was stuck, while trying to turn it the knob snapped from the inside...now its loose and is stuck in the "cold" side and with the cold weather coming this isnt good news...i was told that you can regulate the temperature for the heater to work in you car from the engine area? if so can anyone tell me...thanks!
IT SOUNDS LIKE WHEN TURNING THE KNOB IT WAS STIFF TO TURN THIS COULD BE CAUSED BY A SEIZED CABLE IF CABLE IS NOT SEIZED OPEN UP YOUR HOOD AND WHERE THE HEATER CABLE GOES THROUGH THE FIRE WALL THE CABLE SHOULD GO TO A FLAPPER WHICH IF PUSHED ONE WAY GIVES COLD AIR IF PUSHED THE OTHER WAY GIVES HOT AIR PUSH IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION TO WHAT IT IS NOW PUT A SMALL PAIR OF VISE GRIPS ON END OF CABLE SO IT CANT SLIP BACK TO COLD POSITION UNTIL YOU CAN GET A NEW KNOB IF CABLE IS SEIZED YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE CABLE+
