So I had a light out in my HVAC panel for the driver's side temp slider and decided to change it out. Replace the lamp with no problems, but apparently when I removed to knob on the passenger side temp slider I screwed it up because it would not modulate the temp. I checked voltage at the sliders and verified the slider was bad. I bought a used HVAC control panel, plugged it in and it worked, only this one had even more lights burned out. Thinking I could be more careful this time, I attempted to take the new one apart and replace the bulbs, and again, trying to removed the knob from the passenger slider I screwed up the slider again. My question is, is there a trick to removing those knobs without messing up the slider?

The only input I have is it's possible you toasted the board when removing/replacing the bulbs.

Also, in the future if no one has responded in a reasonable time frame, post in your thread again and bring it into the latest posts and someone might see it again and respond...

I've burnt up two of these circuit boards doing the LED conversion. They're very fragile and I think they're even more fragile than the cluster board. You have to be very careful and use low to moderate heat on the soldering gun when making your solders. Too much heat will fry that board in a heartbeat.

+1. I converted mine to LED with no problems but the board is much more fragile than anything else I have soldered.

I have had no problems with the board and soldering in new lights and components. It is the slider component itself that I kept damaging in trying to get the knobs off. I know they are supposed to just 'pop off', but in doing so I have messed up 3 of the slider components to where they no longer modulate temperature. If anybody has any fried hvac boards with functional sliders that I could rob, I would be interested as I have 2 good boards now with bad sliders.

Wow, must be the season for LED upgrade. I guess as we can't (most of us) work outside, Cool might as well do something inside.
