Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6
I have a 1992 camry with a climate control module that is all controlled with knobs. The left most knob controls the heater tempurature. This module has the gear stripped in it so the lever on the bottom of it will not move to open the vent or the hot water valve. I need to take this unit out. I easily remove the cable from it that goes to the air deflector but I am having a hard time getting the one that goes to the heater valve (the right most or one closest to the pivoit point) out. Do I just pull it very hard out of the crevice that it is pressed into? or is there a trick to this. This whole issue is not discussed in my manual, it is pretty skimpy on the heater system details.
TRY CAREFULLY DISCONECT THE CABLE AT THE BLEND DOOR AND 1. TRY WORKING THE KNOB,
IF WILL NOT MOVE YOU NEED A NEW CABLE.
.2 GENTLY TRY MOVING THE BLEND DOOR BY HAND. THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU THE DEFROST FOR NOW. IF IT WON'T MOVE YOU SHOULD TAKE IT TO A GOOD SHOP THERE ARE A LOT OF SMALL AND EASLY BROKEN PARTS IN THE HEATER BOX. A DAMAGED BEND DOOR ALLWAYS RUINS THE CABLE SO IT WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACE TOO.

The heater is controlled by that valve - you don't get heat because that valve isn't opened. Take the control cable out of it and try to open the valve.
If it opens and the water flows freely then the problem is in the dash controls unit - more precisely in the rotary temp button (where that cable goes).
If you can't open it then it's clogged and must be replaced.
