The two small O/H HVAC control panels for the rear passenger auxillary HVAC system started acting up the other day (the front one in the O/H console area and the rear one for the back passengers). The main front electronic HVAC control in the dash still works fine in my 2004 Mountineer.
The rear O/H control panel's HVAC blower rotary switch stopped working at all speeds "except" High. At the same time, the front O/H control panel's HVAC blower rotary switch also failed and will not activate "any" of the rear blower speeds (including High).
Since I'm past warranty, I'd appreciate any advice or thoughts.
The other controls on both these small O/H rotary panels still work (like the temperature rotary and the push buttons for directing air flow to the ceiling or floor vents). Maybe I could pop out these two small 4" wide control panels and ensure all the wiring connectors are secure as a first step, and simply replace the control panels myself if necessary as a second step (if available from a Parts counter at a dealership)?
Is there any trick to prying these small O/H control panels out of the ceiling?
