ZRE Air Conditioning Dials

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Got in the car last night, turned the directional flow control dial to unfog the windscreen and as i was turning, something inside the plastic snapped and the dial sort of sunk into the plastic of the dash and the illumination died.

Can anyone advise me if I can get a new dial or something? I can pull the dash apart myself but at the back of the air flow control dial thers the cable and I can't seem to get it off, it doesn't look like an easy unplug and replace job.... Has anybody done this before and can lend a few extra tips?

I can post some pictures when I get home and show you where it has snapped and what the dial looks like from the front...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure. Does the actual dial/knob come off? People might be able to help/give you advice when you upload some photos. Haven't heard of this happening in ZREs yet.

It's my luck!!

The dial doesn't come off, but it will fall inside the dash.

Photos coming............

Okay, so I took my mothers advice, "Get off your a** took a look yourself!!"

What I found was, I don't need to replace the whole dial and backing, It's just one part of the plastic...

I could probably get one off a ZRE thats at a wreckers, if ANYONE knows where to find a ZRE at a wreckers, LET ME KNOW PLEASE!!!

Overall I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself, being able to do all this ^_^


This is what I meant by... the dial has sunk.. the top of it doesn't sit straight and is lose to hold.


this is the cord I was talking about that you can't disconnect, which later I found that I don't need to disconnect it...


In this image you'll see a little white bit missing, thats where it snapped......


This is the only part that needs replacing!!


Oh, and the globe needs replacing... Later on I found that the globe had actually exploded which Is why I couldn't find it in this image....

If anyone needs help pulling apart a ZRE dash, let me know!!!
