[DML] Re: While I'm in there... (passenger knee pad removed)


I reassembled my passenger side dash (everything fits and works and
looks great - yay me!) and 2 seconds later I was attacking the center
console.  I somehow feel compelled to take my car apart.  Anyway I
yanked the fan switch out and brought it inside.

I took it apart.  There's some grease in there so I managed to only
drop it once.  I studied the layout of the internal components (5 plug
ends and a 2-prong dial with a bump) compared to the wiring diagram in
the workshop manual (M:18:19).  Apparently Hans Grunwold (it's a
German switch) was daydreaming at his assembly station 24 years ago
and put the dial part in upside down!  I popped it back in the car and
voila! 4 speeds AND an off position!  Everything works now except the
air isn't cold.
