Re: heater control switch and heater box

I rebuilt my switch. It sort of prys apart with bent tabs. If you are careful, its doable. The replacement glass/plastic thing is not the best quality. I had to go through a handful to find the "best" one and it still wasn't all that great. The lever repair kit worked well.

Re: heater control switch and heater box

One other tip I recently found out. I took the plastic faceplate off my 68 heater control to clean. Of course the little tabs holding it in broke. There are 4 unthreaded holes in the bezel. Tap those and use 4 screws to re-attach the bezel to the control.

Re: heater control switch and heater box

Ken, you have to get the pages from the AIM. Do you have one? That shows the cable attachment to the box. The only way to replace all the foam in a heater box is to drill out the spot welds on the tapered side and pull the metal cover off. I use neoprene rubber from McMaster-Carr, because the seal kit from the catalogs in cheap and does not fit properly (what a surprise) and cut to fit.
