So the middle knob in my xb to turn the ac/heater to blow low or high doesn't work anymore after the police wanted to search my car and for some reason they ripped off the damn dash board (where they found nothing) but ever since then it will not work and it is beyond freezing so if someone could point me In the right direction I would appreciate you so very much. TIA

There's plenty of YouTube videos on how to remove that part of the dash - also, many junkyards have what you need ( pick n pulls) and if you absolutely have too - use a wrench 馃敡 to turn it on or off. A pic would help too so we can see the issue. Let us know.

You need to pull the other 2 knobs off
And remove the screws hidden behind them
And the bezel will come off
Then you can attack the fan switch

Honestly.......if I were you, I'd leave the vehicle how the police left it. I'd contact my lawyers and explain to them that the police damaged my vehicle. I'd rent a car and let my lawyers do their thing.

The only law enforcement officers certified to disassemble a vehicle are certain interstate highway patrol officers and certain boarder patrol agents.

Never in NO WAY is ANY civil city police officer qualified to disassemble any vehicle of any type.....I know my sh!t. I got the entire Edward A. Smith & Associates Law Firm backing me up.

The only reason cops do what they want is because regular people don't know what their rights entitle them to.

Last time I had an issue with the cops I got pulled over for driving a car without current insurance. Out here in California the cops have a magical computer system that tells them whether or not you have current registration... But I just bought the car from a private party and my insurance automatically covers that vehicle insurance for 72 hours which gives me time to put it in my name and apply my insurance policy onto it. The cop pulled me over because his computer system showed that my car that I just bought didn't have current insurance and the cop proceeded to crawl around the inside of my car messing up the interior and he broke all kinds of stuff the blinker switch the buttons on the dash...... The cop weighed close to 300 lb and this would be the cop that you would want to come to your rescue if you ever needed a cop to rescue you..... He screwed up my entire car and even towed it off...... A week later the police called me and said I could take my car back and I told them no I'll take it back after we're done going to court.

I ended up getting that car back it was the BMW with all brand new interior and a new dashboard
