Climate Contol Dials Binding

859 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ajc6882
So this has been happening since I owned the car. My temperature selector in my 04 Escape binds when I bring it over from hot to cold. It has a lot of tension. I took a look at the cable that runs to the air box under the dashboard and it hooks over to the control. The control on the airbox door has springs on it. Is there something that I can change or adjust to make this dial move easier?

I know this sounds silly, but mine does the same thing, but only when I have the fan set at a high setting (3 or 4). However, the temperature dial turns much easier when the fan is set a lower setting (1 or 2). Not sure if this helps, but thought I'd share.
