Heater Box Parts - Wtf


Recommended Posts

Heater Box Parts - Where to find???

Looking for the bushings inside the heater box.  The ones for the control arms and for the flaps.  Do they make them?  Also would be great to get new seals where the core tubes exit the box.


I can't even find a part # on realoem


Also, how do I remove the fan from the motor?  Is it just press fit on with the white plastic piece?

I think the control rod bushings and hose grommets are both still available--check with Blunt. 


As for removing the fan from the motor, it ain't easy, especially on the later fans that have a plastic hub.  Too much force will either shatter the plastic hub or separate it from the blades.  Both will ruin the fan.  If you're trying to salvage a good fan from a broken motor, the easiest way is to saw off the end of the armature where the fan is attached, the set the fan hub on an appropriately sized socket and carefully drive the armature stub out of the fan with an appropriately sized punch or drift.  But if both fan and motor are OK, don't try to separate them.  That's asking for trouble.

In the FAQ on Heater Box Rebuild, Chris mentions the sizes of grommets he used for what you mention. 




Check out pn 64 11 1 353 352 for the grommets to surround the tubes.


If you replace the motor, they may not come with the little three legged "cover" which is NLA. You will need to reuse from the old motor.

Paul, i just removed my fan blade. I took 2 steel rulers and slide them between the fan blade and the motor and then using the steel rulers as support taped down on the motor shaft and was able to get the blade to move down the motor shaft.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
