Re: Re: 95 Corolla heater vent

It looks like it is the heat control slider itself that is out of
wack. If I move it around a bunch it seems to "sometimes " fix it.

I have an other question, how do you remove the dash cover that goes
over the radio and heater ? do you just pull it off ? I cant seem to
find any screws. I also want to get to the stereo to replace it.

Thanks for your reply Mike
