Climate control knob shaft or what??
I have searched all over and couldn't find another thread for this, though I thought it would be a commonish problem. The center knob on my climate control (93 L6 Laredo) which selects which vents the air goes to has stripped off the little shaft it turns. The knob itself is worn a bit, but the real problem is that the plastic shaft it sits on has gone from being shaped sorta like a "D" to like an "O"...
I assume this shaft is somehow replaceable, but I don't even know what to really call it to look for one. Also, while turning the shaft manually (with pliers) does work properly, it is crazy stiff. I checked and the other shafts behind temp knob and fan speed knob can be turned by hand, but not so with this so I'm thinking that's why it stripped out.
I am reasonably proficient mechanically and electrically, but having just gotten this jeep I'm not super familiar with how to go about pulling apart the bezel and digging into this thing, or if that's even a good idea.
Any advice would be awesome, thanks!
