vent position control not working properly

Asked by 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.
