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



I sat in the car yesterday for about 15 minutes playing with all the
dials and whatnot and I believe the mode switch is ok.  Makes the
thunking noise and little pressure noises when changing and I can feel
the difference as I change temps and everything so aside from the bum
fan switch it seems ok.  I'll remove/clean it and maybe I'll get
lucky, or maybe it's toast.
