vent position control not working properly


Asked by dsintrepid Feb 26, 2013 at 03:06 PM about the 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My vent position or air direction control is not working. I have taken apart the center to where i can get to the AC controls in the back. When I traced the cable down, the knob would move the cable, but the flap or mechanism that changes the air direction, does not move. The position can be moved manually. Did a spring or something pop out? Also please provide a drawing of where the cable conocts to the control unit and where the cable connects to the air direction mechanism. Thank you.

On my 2005 sentra the plastic broke were the black clip holds cable, just drilled a couple holes and zip tied and FIXED.
