now thats funny .......sorry i couldnt resist......I realize this is my first post, but that statement is like getting a fox (KIA) to guard the chicken coup (customer)
Thanks for the tip. My defrost wasnt working and I was about to take it to the dealer, when I found this thread. That is a real stupid spot for a connection like that. Thanks again!!Originally posted by sixjeeps@Oct 2 2005, 08:09 PM
It is a linkage in the driver's side footwell, and yes, it fell off because it was kicked by the driver's right foot. If you look with a flashlight in the area near the center console where the accelerator pedal foot would rub against, you'll see a small linkage hanging free. Reconnect the linkage and snap the little plastic snap ring back on.
It's your foot that brushes against the snap ring and loosens the linkage. As soon as I notice it, I just reach down and reconnect to. You need to see it the first time, but after that you can reconnect it by feel. I would often do it at highway speeds without missing a beat.
