heater fan push switches on main dash panel
« on: 04 January 2019, 20:24:53 »

Hello i have an issue with the fan  switch area on my 2002 elite 2.6 which became kind of sticky. i attempted to clean off the stickyness with spray dash cleaner but ended up taking the black off the small fan control switches and the other two switches on that panel.
I would need to replace the whole panel which includes boot release and rearblind amongst other things.
my question is how easy is it to replace the panel(the one that surrounds the stereo)and can i get hold of a used one ?
thanks for help

Carefully  ::)

You need to split the unit... Easier to do than to try to explain  ;)

Has the damage gone beyond the climate panel?  If not, simply swap the climate ecu/panel over if you can find a perfect one, or swap buttons over if you cant find a perfect one. Patience is needed to dismantle ecu to get to buttons due to lots of plastic clips, but remains an option.

If the damage has fone beyond that climate strip, you need to replace those bits as well - they all have to come off anyway to get climate panel out.

Yup, replacement climate panel, if you can find a perfect one.  If you find one that has good fan buttons but poor Auto/Eco/Off (the other ones that tend to go), then that's an option, and make one good on from the 2 bad...

Sorry, couldn't help that...

It will fit, and work, perfectly  :y

All facelift Omegas have climate control as standard.
