Climate control issue

My girlfriend has an 07 Yaris in which the controls to change the direction of airflow from the blower are no longer working. It now sends air through all vents at once and changing the knob does nothing. The blower still works on all speed settings and I'm guessing if it is the same as other cars the resistor is still good on that. Now I have a lot of experience with complete dash removals on many vehicles and even have pdf of section of the shop manual that describes the removal. Being that the car is now 4 years old I would expect some issues to start arising but before I remove the dash I think I should check to see if anyone else has had this problem so that I do not waste my time or hers.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

So the vent selector thing isn't working? You could pop off the climate control panel and see if the cable fell off.

Oh ok, I didn't know it used a cable. I thought it would be electronic.

I'll try that today, thanks!

That was it, so easy my girlfriend could have done it herself.

What a nice vehicle to work on, if I could just get the front wheels off to change the brakes I'd be great.

so i have the same problem, except i'm not a pro at removing the panels and i get stuck when I have to remove the actual climate control panel (i removed the sides easily enough, but I'm scared that i might break the top of the actual climate control panel because it's not budging when i pull on it. any tricks?

2006 climate control broken

Can someone show me how to access these dials to repair? The middle one was sticky to turn, then just let loose and wouldn't work at all. Now the control knob just pushed inside and is loose inside the dash. So can't change between settings- need my defrost back!!
(hatchback- if that matters- the controls are 3 in a row vertically)
