    Default Aircon dial problem

    My central button on my car, the one you press in to get to the aircon screen is very tempremental.

    You have to give it a bit of a shove to get the screen to come up.
    Is this a known fault?
    Is it possible to just clean it up or is it a very fiddly job?

    Car is a 3.2 Siggy Elite if this makes any difference.

    Mine is exactly the same sometimes i feel as if its close to breaking when i push it in

    Ive ended up just leaving the aircon on, the fuel consumption wont take much of a hit as its such a large engine but i might try and source a cheap new control panel once the summer is out of the way.

    Same problem with mine, I want to strip the unit down but first need to get it out of the dash and have no idea how it comes out. I don't want to start levering plastic off without knowing how and where it's all fixed. Haven't had my vectra long so don't know my way around it all that well yet.

    I'd have a dig about for a replacement either from a scrappy or off the bay. Chances are if the switch is that worn from being wellied instead of lightly pressed, a cleanout isn't going to make a whole heap of difference.

    Why cleaning would not help. a thousand times I've cleaned the remote controls for TV, which were almost dead, and after cleaning worked like new. My problem is how to dismantle it all. I know how to pull the unit out, but the dismantling worries me. I believe that the central switch, connector inside is just dusty and greasy.

    If someone has tried to solve this problem, i woud like to get some instructions.

    I doubt you will find the climate unit that works on junk yard, becouse this is problem on all vehicles with automatic climate control.
