Question about 2004 Toyota Highlander
Too cold w/ a/c, can't adjust properly. Can't adjust heat properly either. Told by dealer that it's a " Header", the center control, for temp, that's bad at $600-700 to replace w/ min. labor. Would like to replace myself with used parts. Any info where to find and what it's called? Located in SE PA
If you're willing and able, you can fix it yourself. you have to pop off the big plastic frame. then 6 bolts to remove the unit. then unplug. then four screws to remove the radio, you repair the unit by re-soldering the ribbon cable or removing and replacing it with single wires. the ribbon cable is between the knob's little circuit board and the main circuit board. that's it.
or you can find more detailed instructions at tundrasolutions.com

I have had limited success in removing the knob and tightening the 12 mm nut on the shaft, but usually the damage to the potntiometer has been done and the switch will have to be replaced
