arlo is on a distinguished road

If my understanding is correct.
The control cables from the back of the panel in the
cabin work with wire inside a spiral sheath.
On my '87 those wire insides have a bend at the
end where they attach to the plate where the
slides are mounted. The sheath is held in place
with a crimped clip that is part of the plate.
There is no screw holding the crimped clamp.
To see the plate:
Remove the knobs off the controls. (pull towards
yourself...slide off in your fingers)
Place all the switches and slides in the middle of
their travel throw.
Pull the plastic panel with instructions on it into
the cabin with a hooked device.
Take the fastening screw out of each end of the
slide panel.
You should be able to push the slides back into
the dash at this time. Do that.
Carefully bend the plate down into sight.
There should be 3 cables coming to the plate,
one on the left side and two on the right.
the heat one is on the right.
From that point you may be able to repair the
problem. ( add a screw or whatever)
It is not hard to replace that whole plate, just
detach all the cables and wires and find a different
one to replace it. (mine came from a Suzuki Forza
donor ... if a Sami is not available to you)
If that is not an option, you could attach a common
choke cable to the hot water valve on the firewall,
available at most auto supply places.
Hope this helps you get adjustable heat sources.
Some just open the hood and move the hotwater
switch to on and leave it there until next summer
when you open the hood and move it the other way.
Hope this helped you enjoy your Sami.
