Ive never played on the hyundais, but most Knobs are put on Firmly over a Gnurled post. Pull firmly. If you needed a new knob, im thinking they would just slide on.

You probably need to pullthe knobs off the 3 controls so that the panel can be pulled foreward!

Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

Blend door motor actuator removal

It's located on the left side of the HVAC case under the dash, about halfway up the case. On the drivers side, close to the side of the center console.

I changed the battery on 2006 Trailblazer SS. Now I can only get AC from my windshield and floor vents. Nothing from the dash vents. Also the temp control only gives coldest temp. I have checked fuses...

once you disconnect the battery your body control module loses power and memory you have to get some one with a scanner with reprogramming capabilities and have the computers reset ,dealer?

Rear window stuck-Convertable

does the window try to move, meaning it is stuck in its track, or does the motor not try to move the window? If the latter then look at the rocker switch on your center console that controls the rear windows. I had to replace my switches to get my rear windows working.

remove the center console. around the ash tray, the cig-lighter,the radio...the radio just slides out when you stick a small, little slot-head screw-driver in the little slots to release the clips. All the wires unhook and are easy to disconnect and reconnect.. There are screws in the back where the radio was ... remove all the plastic anchor screws and pull out the screws and the anchors...When all the socket screws are removed, take out the control assembly for the HVAC... pullback the entire center will be able to reach up and remove the little plastic enclosed motor assembly that controlls the door...remove the three screws and you have the motor that operates the door...Hind-sight-My cost for the motor assembly was $65.00...I thought that was the solution to the problem...After you remove the assembly, CHECK THE DOOR OPERATION ...I attempted to operate the door and a cracking plastic sound resulted in a completly destroyed duct work area where the motor assembly I have to replace the door assembly in the duct area, way up there in the dash...I recommend makeing sure that the door operates.. and there is no obstruction causing the door to be stuck,...which caused the damage and breakage of the motor assembly. Before buying the replacement part.

1999 Villager heater and a/c controls are dead and stuck on high

I am guessing your electronic control head is bad. You can buy a used one at Look for the page with the asterik for the cheapest prices and look for a warranty. New are @ $400 to $800. Used, under $100.
you have to remove center console for access to remove trim panel around control head ( heater controls). About a half hour job.

The HVAC does not switch from cold to hot. Seems like the temp control door is not moving. Air conditioning is working fine. the inlet and outlet hoses at the firewall are both hot.

The location of the blend motor on my 2005 malibu is on the driver side, near the center consol, not easy to get to. Before you try to remove the blend motor, unplug the wires it, turn the temp knob to cool side, disconnect the pos side of the battery for a couple of minutes. Reconnect the battery, plug in the bend motor start the car and turn the temp control to heat side. If this does not work remove the motor and repeat. the motor my be jamed. I had the same problem, this might be a cheaper way to fix this instead of the dealer. PS if you remove the blend motor, be carfull to look at the orientation of the spring on the shaft of the door in case it pops off.
