Mk1 heater control unit. Hens teeth?

Post by Manalishi » Mon Apr 20, 2020 8:24 pm

As I’m in the progress of restoring my Mk1 vitesse I’m looking for the heater control unit. The sliders are not working as they should and the knobs are broken.

I presume impossible to find but hoping!

Not even sure RHD fits?

I'll have a look tomorrow Henrik, got a box of them from various years, not sure i have a manual A/C version though.

Either way fairly sure i have something that will be close, seem to recall the sliders are purely mechanical operating cables so might be a case of freeing off and adjustment plus a bit of switch cleaner in the A/C switch.
Cheers,
Dave

Cheers Dave, Please look. The most important thing is the sliders for the fan and the heater. The knobs appear to be broken off as they come loose all the time, and now I cant get them back at all.

I can't remember now but it might be separate parts/modules so could be interchangeanle LHD/RHD, I'll try to rip it apart later.

Apparently not separate modules. I’m going to lift the circuitboard later to have a look.

Yes apparently one piece. But looking at the complexity of it it would probably be the same for LHD as RHD. No pics to verify right now though.

It's not the same RHD - LHD...

It's mirror image if you look closely Henrik and i'd lay bets the same parts are used so don't give up yet! :wink: :D

Meanwhile, a UFO landed in my back garden! :shock:

Turned out was the neighbours drone and his controller batteries died mid-flight so it dropped out of the sky! :lol:

Yes spotted that they are mirror image.

The problem is the levers. They have come off, and I cant get them back in so changing the speed of the fan and adjusting the heat is somewhat complicated at the moment.

Sadly those control panels won't yield anything helpful as you appear to have the "stepless rheostat" speed control for the fan rather than the switch on these and the temperature control slider is completely missing - cable operated i think it was.

As they won't help unless you have another car stashed away that you could use them on, i'll throw the offer open to anyone else they would help, cost of postage/packing and they're gone.
Cheers,
Dave
