Default heater on my beater

Good day Honda afficiados

My 94 civic temperature control slider is messed up from me forcing it
(after 8 years of pushing it over slowly and playing with the fan speed
control to get it to slide) I know from sitting in some other folks similar
year civics this heat slider control problem is not an uncommon.

This car has well over 250K on it, with quite a few of them "flogging"
mileage. Dented and rusted I am hoping to milk a few more miles out of it,
but need to get that temperature control up. I'd be happy just having it in
the full heat position. I don't want to really ugly up my dash with a
sawz-all or exacto knife.

How do I get in there or what's the best way to get those internals to open
up that valve so I can get some heat.????

Thanks in advance.

K.B.'s hint of the day..... if you ever put cardboard in front of your
radiator to increase the heat output, make sure you put a sign on your
dashboard about the car being equipped thusly.

94 civ
03 accord
50 EL (mostly stock)

You need to remove the center console with the ashtray etc. One screw
on each side, one in each top corner. Unplug wire harness to lighter

Then you need to remove the stereo, screws at the rear of the stereo
accessible from below. Unplug main connector and antenna connector and
remove stereo.

Then remove the heater control head, one screw at the rear accessible
from below. Unplug one or two connectors. Pay attention to heater cable
going down towards the glove-box side of the dash and over to the air
handler. There is a separate control cable going from the air handler
over to the valve in the coolant line.

This link is for stereo installs, it has good instructions and pictures
for removing the console and stereo. http://tinyurl.com/4cvdz

If you just want it in the full heat position then there is a
cable lever under the dash on the passenger left foot rest.
Try moving it to hot. Another cable from here goes to the
coolant hose valve in the engine compartment. You can
remove that cable and force it to hot.
