Default HUD problem

Hello. I just bought a '93 SSE and I am having the exact same problem as SSEimatt93. Was there a solution to this problem? The HUD worked fine when I test drove the car last week. The battery was replaced by the shop where I bought it and now the up and down slider will not work.
From what I have read, this is a mechanical device and should not be affected by the battery swap.When I peek over the top of the dash I can see it clearly working. I did a search in the forums but I could not find anything. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mark

Remove your dash trim. It pops off with no tools. Remove the HUD controls. Make sure the cable is attached to the adjuster.

I'm reading this thinking..Now what Bonneville SSEi was it that did that to me, then I rememberd it was my Second 93 SSEi
My cable was broken off at the switch itself..I could manually adjust the hud setting with a pair of pliers on the end of the cable, I set it in a good spot and left it there...

Thanks for the input guys. I am not going to mess around with the dash in such cold weather (-21C). I'll wait 'till it warms up a little or get it inside at work. After doing a more refined search on this site, I found a few other threads with some good info on how to fix this problem.

Great site...glad to be here.

Just warm the car up, and turn on the heat. That dash trim will come right off ok.

The dash came off easier than I thought it would. The cable was on but it was bent and frayed. I just disconnected it and pushed it up so I could see the image on the dash and left it there.

Works great.Thanks guys.
