This is easy. You can do it yourself.

The center section of the dash simply pulls straight out. Once you have the center section unhooked, unplug all of the wires. Turn the panel over, and push on the back of the AC switch, it will slide out towards the front. Slide the new switch in, it locks into place when it seats. Plug all of the wires back on (they are all different, you can't plug them in incorrectly), and refit the center section.
Save yourself some money, and do it yourself.

Hope this helps, and Thnaks for choosing FixYa.

I got an 95 c280 and pretty much all the things in the dash borad dont work, like the gas meter, the stereo the ac, the service engine ligths, i need a repai manual or a diagram so i can take apart the...

first there is an engine wiring harness issue from 1993-1995 that if the insulation is bad the car needs alot of work. The gage cluster should just pull out if you can get something under the edge of both sides and wiggle and pull. There is a fuse on the back of the cluster and a ground you should unbolt and wire brush.

All lights to my radio buttons on my '99 Silverado have shot.

half of the buttons on my radio have shorted out too,
the dealer wanted some outrageous fee to fix it so we left it,
as for the panel ive heard it pulls right out but dont take my word for it as i have not done it, also an aftermarket radio would be the best fix because the stock delco unit is terrible

Coolant leaking, apparently at heater core where

You could but it is a tricky job as you need to take a good part of the dash apart. I wouldn't bring it to the dealer unless you have cash to burn. The part will probably be a couple hundred and then 3-4 hours labor or so. Probable plan $600 or so.

2005 grand prix HUD can only be seen when i look below steering..

There should be a switch on the dash somewhere to adjust the position of the HUD. I'm thinking it's near the driver information center (DIC). I just worked on one of these cars a week ago and I remember seeing the switch. Just can't remember exactly where but I know it's there. Hope this helps.

Heater not working

Heat adjuster door fix does not have to cost a lot of money. Search for Heater Treater. I lost dual control functionality but it is way better than the $1800 the dealer wanted to charge me.

Air conditoner on a 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited

you have a blend air system. this means that it uses both the a/c and heat to control the cab temp. there are doors that open and close using servo motors and chances are one or more of these motors might have shorted out. unfortunately they are under the dash and a pain to get to. i would advice that you take it to a shop and let a qualified tech replace them. it will save you alot of frustration in the long run
