Question about Toyota Corolla
There is a cable that wraps around the vent control knob in my 2010 corolla. This cable is what allows you to switch between where the AC/heater blows. If I could find a replacement cable I could fix it myself but I have no idea where I can find one, any help?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!
Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!
The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!
I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!
Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!
3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!
But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

These trucks have a problem where moisture builds up in the heater box then freezes. When this freezes and you change your heater settings it breaks the shaft for the blend door. If this is what happened you should be able to look under the dash above and to the right of the gas pedal and you will see two vaccuum accuators one of them you should be able to wiggle around the linkage if it is broke. To fix this you need to remove the entire dash to get the heater box out which involves discharging the AC and draining the coolant because the heater core and evaporator come out. Please rate.

Unfortunately, you can do it, but you will have to remove your entire dash in the process. It's not really difficult, just time consuming. You can remove the front dash cover by opening the doors and removing the covers on each side. They are just clips that hold them on. Take a flat screwdriver and carefully pry them off. You will then see screws on the side that you will need to unbolt, and I believe there are 2 more screws pointed upwards that you can get to if you open your glovebox. After those screws are removed, remove the defroster grill in the middle of your dash. There is just one screw to remove and it unclips. Now you can pry the entire top part of the dashboard off. There are more clips holding it on, so just be careful when you do it. After that, you will see a bunch of screws on the top side that you can unbolt and then you will be able to remove the front cover that sits behind your steering wheel. With these pieces out of the way, you can finally unbolt the front cover where your stereo is and get at whatever your trying to get at to fix your defroster/control knob.
I had to go through all this when I installed my aftermarket stereo.

You can save a LOT of money by fixing it yourself.
All that is wrong with the knob are broken wires from the knob's PC board to the main PC board on the AC control.
All you have to do is remove the AC main control, take it apart, and resolder the broken wires from the PC board with the knob on it, to the main AC pc board. There are 3 wires, any number could be broken.
If you take it apart and solder the broken wires, this WILL fix your issue. Just make sure you put the wires back exactly where they go.
A FIXYA rating (4 blue diamonds) would be most appreciated for my assistance.
