dash? The panels that cover the direction sliders and the temp control slider look to have little nuts on the backside ( i bought a nice set on fleabay). I am hoping i can finesse the old ones out and the new ones in w/o taking the whole dash out( that will not happen soon). anyone done this? Thanks for advice/experience with this. Also: learned a valuable lesson yesterday- after removing the bottom plate from my steering column to replace a foglight switch, i just screwed it back together with the top half ..... not so fast! The horn contact ring has to be seated correctly between the top half and the bottom half of the column and if the column is put together just a hair out of place, it can also inop your low beam headlight contact. so, while i was trying to reacquire low beams, the horn kept going off because the ring was too far back and it created hell until i pulled the fuse for the horn. Now that i have been taught how to replace the contact ring- i wont bother the neighbors again. Very touchy area on the 72!.

Good info on the faq on the heater rebuild page. On my 72 I popped the knob ends off the slide arms, removed the screws on the back of the face plates and the face plates push off from behind. Happy trails!

    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
