Ithe vent, but windows wont clear for a VERY long time.
the reason I'm asking is my 97 Tercel had 2 tension pulleys on it but after i had some work done to it i noticed it now has none. In fact the whole pulley set up does not look the same??? the guy said he replaced the crank because it had some a few broken teeth on it. I'm really confused, I know i don't much about motors but i do know it doesn't look the same under the hood, please help!!!

I cannot control the heater temperature. I believe the cable end has come off the control valve lever. It appears to me it may be behind a plastic plate in the top-center of the dash. I tried prying the plate but it did not seem to want to budge. I don't want to break it in any way... How do I get it out of the dash if that is what I need to do to access the heater control valve.
