Chrysler Repair/2009 PTcabin air distribution won't change


Hi Roland I have a 2009PTcruiser and the fan switch will not change the location of its direction.It only blows out of the defroster.

Hi Kenneth,
I have the '06 manual and that shows there is a mechanical cable that controls the air distribution "mode" door. Does it feel like that cable has become disconnected when you move the control?
I can share the pages from the manual that describe how to remove the cluster bezel and then to service the cable attachment. Let me know your email address but don't use the @ symbol, instead use "at" or it will be erased automatically.
