Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
The knob you turn for airflow to defrost/vemt/feet/etc doesn't light all the time. If I hit side of console, it lights up. How do I take apart?
something might be stuck in the ducting not allowing the door to move and direct air flow to the other ducts. First pull straight on the nob and pull it off of the dash. then take a pair of pliers and make sure the smell metal peg will rotate.

SOURCE: lights on fan knob does not work
the bulbs are made into the a/c control head and are not replaceable. the only way to get them working again is to replace the hole assembly.

diverter is stuck in the hvac unit or the cable from the controls to the diverter is broken. need to remove the front console garnish to follow the cables

SOURCE: I suspect that the divider
on the sides of the heater box there will be another black box attached to it, that has a motor in it with some plastic gears. when you switch to the floor this box gets an ohm reading telling it what position to turn to, and the plastic gears crack due to excessive heat. when the gear crack gets to where the other contact point is it stops, almost like it has no more teeth to grab onto. if you have pass & driver heat temps there will be a box for each side. usually its the one on the drivers side.
