brass capillary tube holder for a/c?

Does anyone have a source for the thin brass tube that goes through the front of a Behr a/c evaporator assembly and slides inside the evaporator core? The capillary tube that's part of the a/c switch slides into it.

I think the capillary tube is part of the A/C temperature switch and that you have to buy the whole assembly. Part number is 64 51 1 352 041.

I suspect they are long NLA. Used ones are hard to find because people break them when working on them.

Good luck!

Not original, but many hobby shops have a good selection of thinwall brass tubing. Perhaps cobble something up from that?

Hadn't thought of that, thanks!

Bill -- you are correct that the capillary tube is an integral part of the switch. This isn't that. This is the thin brass tube the capillary tube slides into. I'm sure system will function fine without it -- with the capillary tube inserted directly between the evaporator core fins. But if I could find a brass tube I'd put it in while I'm assembling the system.
