AC/Heater selector switch

my knob to select which setting (not the speed) has always been that it doesn't "click" at each setting, but rather just works on the defrost mode and the first a/c mode.

if anyone has had (and fixed) this problem please leave some input, is it something that i need to buy a whole new panel for? or is it something behind my panel in the dash?

It's called the mode switch and needs to be replaced.

Pull the knob off and make sure it's not broken where it slides over the shaft. It's a common problem.

ok thank you, i guess i'll be ordering a new one today, and thanx for the tip about making sure that it isn't broken but i can switch it between the very first setting (the a/c one) and the windshield defroster which are on completely different sides of each other so i know it's turning it
