1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: HVAC Mode Slider Stuck

March 18, 2011

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: HVAC Mode Slider Stuck 

Hmph. Well, I usually just leave it set to vents-and-feet anyway. So there.

The slider is jammed in the position you see above, so I crammed my torso into the driver's footwell to see what is amiss among Project Miata's various cables and rod linkages that regulate the direction of the breeze. Found nothing obvious in the time it took for my bum shoulder to really get pissed off, which is about thirty seconds. A problem for another day. Or another person.

In other, less-pedestrian news, I installed a Flyin Miata clutch and flywheel this week. And I'm likin' it. More on that later.
