Does anyone know how to fix this?

One side of my climate control panel has come loose and I don't know how to fix it. I can't really fit under it to look. Has this happen to anyone else? It's on 2016 F-53 chassis.

That is an Evans/Tempcon HVAC control panel (not Ford...TMC uses large/quality 3rd party vendors for most systems):

As you can see from their product photo, it has ears on either end to mount it.
The left ear or the mount to the ear appears to have broken...remove and repair.

You typically must get behind it for repair. And that usually means access from underneath.

Best luck

I have the same problem with our Damon Essence. Cannot figure how to get behind it. There is a cabinet and drawers built in under it.
Will try to watch this thread and see what answers come up. Please message me if you have a solution

Here is my DIY take on this problem. If you are familiar with pop in electrical boxes they have tabs that turn,( it is difficult to explain) If you are not familiar with them, go the the hardware or lumber yard, HD or Lowes , ask to see one of these boxes. I think then when you see how they operate you will be able to drill a small hole for a screw on the side that is no longer attached and fabricate a tab or just buy a pop in electrical box and rob one off the box. Good luck, Richard

I took off the dog house so I could get a better look behind it. I saw what looks like the tabs, but still can't get to them to work on it. My solution, taking it to a service center (not CW) and let them deal with it. I think they might have to remove the dash to get to it, unless they have some cool tools that they can reach below and behind to work on it.
