Last night while putting center dash part back over radio and climate controls I dropped the darn screw down the vent, stupid magnetic screwdriver gave me too much confidence. Is there any way without tearing dash apart to look for it and possibly get it back? I heard it rattle all the way down like a pinball. I fished around with a magnetic wand but did not catch anything. I don't think it can get to fan motor/blade but if I have to listen to it rattle I will go nuts. Any ideas? Thanks
I would leave it and see if it even rattles first. Maybe try turning the control knobs to all positions and see if u can get it to drop to the bottom then see if you can stick something through the floor vents to get it
I think I now have a bigger problem, I can't hear the door move anymore that changes between inside and outside air. I'm wondering if the dam thing has lodged in there some how. I've looked for a diagram showing where that door is and if there is a easy way to access it. But, I can't seem to find anything showing me this info.
As previously suggested, probably time to pull the air box assy out... Great time to swap heater core and do a blower fan upgrade, AND........ Get your screw back! (it's not a hard job), just time consuming and some contortion of your body under/behind the dash - - I'm with ya, put a head unit (el-cheap-o) in two weekends ago..... Reminded me...... I'm getting old
