Does anyone know if any of the parts behind a C5 Manual Air Conditioning Heater Control are sold anywhere? The knob all the way to the right that controls where the Air Conditioning or Heat is directed to in the car let loose on Friday. My '99 C5 only has 37K miles on it so that control really didn't get much usage over the years. Looking at the back of it all 3 Knob controls are bolted on and look to be easily replaceable. I have seen the complete used Manual Control sold on Ebay for $200-300. Seems ridiculous to pay so much for a used complete part when 2/3's of the parts making mine up are in perfect shape. Showing a front and back picture. On the front picture it is the knob assembly all the way to the right. In the picture showing the back of the complete part it would be the part all the way to the left that is defective. URL is from a used one up for sale on Ebay. It was the only way I could post pictures here of the Manual A/C Heater Control.

Found out early this morning that my problem wasn't as bad as I thought it was looking at it late yesterday afternoon. Found that there is nothing wrong with the part itself but the right side knob controlling it is disintegrated from behind causing it to seem like the actual part that controls the air flow on the very right side was frozen shut in one place. Looked all over the net for replacement knob but came up empty so I took some ProSeal Epoxy to it very similar to PC-7 and JB Weld . This was their version of 5 minute Epoxy with Steel bits mixed in. The knob is working perfectly now and you can't see the repair. Would of liked to replace it or all 3 with new Knobs but I had to make do. In the mean time I will keep my eyes open for a new replacement but I also feel that the ProSeal product will keep my original together based on past use of the product.
