1.Open the glove box and remove the screw which goes into the side of the heater vent.
2.Shine a torch into the vent and locate the 4 spring clips which hold it into the dash, once you've found them use a small flat blade screwdriver to carefully prize each one out.

My 1999 Dodge pickup heater will not cut off

Depends on what you mean by "shut off".
If the hot air will continue to come out whilst the engine is running, either the dashboard temperature control is broken or stuck (not too likely) or the under-the-hood control is stuck/broken (more likely).
Locate the under-the-hood switch ( could be operated by a small black rubber vacuum line or by a wire) and see if it is working when you have someone else try it inside the car.
That control switch is located at the rear of the engine compartment by the fire-wall.
If the blower fan will not shut off, it would be the dashboard fan control is stuck or broken.
God bless your effort.

How do i dismantle the dashboard

Presuming your car is fitted with the automatic heating/cooling system.
There is only one fan controls the heating/cooling system the distribution from this to the various vents is controlled by a series of electronic flaps which open or close dependent on the temperature selected at the control unit.
If the motor is running and the drivers side is receiving cooling it may be a problem with the control unit or a flap has stuck open.
Replace the control unit first as the flaps are a citroen job.
Control unit is the bit with the temperature displays etc.

its easy, open the flip door part way and you can just pull, the tray will pop off the plastic hinges. when you are done looking, just pop the tray back on.

Hi i have a clicking noise behind the dash board of my 53plate saab 93 1.9 tid it starts when you turn the engine on and lasts for around 10seconds and then goes off,also when i turn the car off it does...

I think the sound your describing comes from the ventilation system, if you push the button on your ventilation system that controls the air recycling it should reproduce the sound that you are describing.Apparently it is a plastic gear that switches between outside air and recycling and this gear has become damaged and lost some of its teeth.
You have to dismantle your glove box to be able to get to the mechanism to replace it. I have the same problem with my 2004
9-3 and as this fault does not affect the running of the car and the ventilation system is still fully functional i have decided to leave it as is. Hope this is of some help

I have a 2004 volvo s80, the driver side AC woks but the passenger side doesn't work. somebody knows why?

Hi, Check the ventilation fins in the passenger side, it might have been stuck to "close", even when the knob/switch says "open"! The other one would be the ventilation duct might have loosen from the A/C evaporator/blower box! If you have a hard time and no time tinker, let a service garage do that for you!
Hope that helps you out!

There is an issue with the air conditioner, the passenger side blows hot air and the driver side is cold. What do I need to do to fix this issue.


Looks like your ventilation system is not functioning.
Under your dashboard is the ventilation housing, flaps that directs air from one point to another are stuck up or the one that controls it(mostly vacuums hoses and solenoid) is not working anymore.

The work to be done is to pull out the whole dashboard to gain access in that area.

I suggest you should bring that to your dealer or garage shop to fix that problem.

Hope that helps you!

Thanks for asking Fixya!

1992 pontiac bonneville fan problem. When I switch the fan on, air doesn't come out. It sounds like the fan motor is on but is stuck or just isn't turning the gears?

these are noteworthy of having the evaporator plugging up between the fins, dismantling the blower housing and cleaning the evaporator is the only cure, and its no fun
