AIR DISTRIBUTION CONTROL KNOB SPRINGS BACK FROM THE SCREEN POSITION

The customer complains that the air distribution control springs back from the desired position when attempting to select windscreen demist.

A dimensional error on the air distribution link rod.

Action

Where distribution control knob spring back is confirmed, replace the existing link rod assembly with the new assembly JTN000010, as described below.

1. Set the air distribution control to the face level vents only position, (fully anti-clockwise).

2. Remove the centre console, Workshop Manual repair number 76.25.01 refers.

3. Viewing the right hand side of the heater assembly, identify the distribution planet gear, (‘A’ in illustration 1). Note its position on the distribution gear ‘B’. The timing mark arrowed in illustration 1 should be aligned with the distribution gear as shown.

2. Ensure that the distribution gear is still rotated fully anti-clockwise, (face vent position), fit the planet gear to the distribution gear, aligned as shown in illustration 1 and refit the retaining bush and screw (‘C’ in illustration 2).

3. Rotate the distribution control knob in both directions to confirm that full travel is obtainable. If not, recheck and correct the planet gear timing mark alignment.
