Default HVAC controls - 1982

Are these available as replacements? I could have sworn I saw one in an online catalog somewhere but when I looked a while back, couldn't find it again.

*sigh* it looks like I need to pull the dash and look at this more in depth, eh? May explain why the a/c doesn't work. Fan blows out the bottom, but that's it.

I'm not aware of repops of those. I needed one for my '83 and ended up buying one on eBay. Good luck sorting yours out.

Greg, are you a member on Four Eyed Pride Forums? They are a great resource for us early SSP owners. You may be able to find a good used one there.

Vacuum leaks suck! I know that the M-body Chryslers were notorious for vacuum connector leaks. The rubber/plastic connectors did deteriorate in many cars of that era and you would have a problem with vent doors directing the air around the cabin. When you take a look at it, try to find a diagram of the vacuum system for the interior to see if there are disconnect points. Normally the plastic vacuum tubes would hold up but the rubber connectors would not. I've had to refashion a connector from new rubber vacuum hose (1/8th" inner diameter usually) to correct the problem.

Good luck!

Thanks, guys. Yes, I'm a member over on 4EP. I just could've sworn that I had seen one new somewhere. The fan level switch is loose in its mount. Maybe something I can repair, not sure.

GSPI, on both my '91 Crown Vic and my '92 Camaro, I've spent the time and effort to replace most if not all vacuum lines under the hood and some of the connectors. That will be a goal with this car as well.

I finally got brave enough to tackle this job. I've been wanting to get my gauge cluster back together, but not with this looming over me.

I pulled the dash loose and leaned it forward to give me access to the HVAC components. This is where the duct tape was. It was covering a crack across the top of the box.

What do you think? Repair or replace? This is totally out of my realm. Never been this deep into a restoration before.

That should be a pretty easy fix. Replace the cover, or just remove it and repair it (your call). You might want to replace the heater core while you're in there, but be sure to replace the butyl-type gasket in there, too. If not, you'll end up replacing the core again soon. I've never done it on a 4-eyed car, but I had that problem when I did my '93 coupe.

gut it..... take some good pictures as you take it apart if that will help you put it back together. No way would I ever get as far as you are and then not change the core out. If the heater box is cracked i would replace it also.

It appears to be a daunting task to get all that apart, but it actually isn't that bad of a job.

I was thinking the same thing about the heater core, I just didn't know if the box could be repaired or if I had to buy an entire assembly. Like I said, I've never made any repairs or replacements of this sort.

Time to start studying. Thanks guys.
