Question about 2001 Toyota Echo

1 Answer

The airflow selector on my 2001 Toyota Echo became difficult to turn, so unfortunately, I forced it and something snapped. I believe the arm that moves the paddle broke. How can the entire airflow selector mechanism be replaced? How difficult a job is it and approximately how much would it cost to have it done? Thank you, Frank

How to replace the shift linkage in the pontiac montana van

On that van, like many other GM front-wheel-drive vehicles, the shift cable goes through a bracket on the transmission to the linkage( the little metal arm). Where the cable connects to the linkage, there is a ball stud. It takes quite a bit of force to disconnect the cable from that. If it became disconnected at that ball without any other outside influence, the shift cable may need to be replaced. You can try pushing the plastic end of the shift cable back on to that ball stud ,it should click into place.
If the ball stud became disconnected from the linkage(little metal arm), the linkage would need to be replaced.
There should be a locknut holding the linkage to the transmission stud right above the range selector switch. If it came loose of there, you may need a new linkage, and to replace that nut

How do you replace the blower motor resistor in a 2001 toyota echo, blower only works when set to full speed leads me to believe it is the resistor from searching information, just need to figure out how...

The resistor pack is almost always close to the blower. It needs air moving across it to keep it cool. It is usually installed into the duct with two small screws. It has a connector with about 5 -6 wires, and is about 3/4 inch wide, and about 3-4 inches long. Some can be a little difficult to get out due to clearance, and their shape.

Also, it could be the fan speed switch that's giving you problems.

The airflow selector on my 2001 Toyota camry became difficult to turn, so unfortunately, I forced it and something snapped. I believe the arm that moves the paddle broke. How can the entire airflow...

Brother Mark, I know just what you mean. What happened is that the wire on the end of the cable has pulled out of the hole on the lever at the control because the cable has dried inside the housing and needs lubrication. Near impossible to do without taking it out, then mas as well replace the cable. Most likely the lever on the control valve that shuts the water line off at the firewall has stiffened up and caused you to force it and pulled the cable out at the valve in front of you on the firewall under hood. I don't know pricing on this stuff because I always do my own work. I build my vehicles, not buy them. Either way, it's the water control valve and cable that need attention. I just open the valve with pliers under the hood for winter if I don't feel like changing it right away. the other stuff on the control panel works fine.
