Air Vents Fabrication

Anyone make some vents out the dash on their 02? I am working with a cracked dash, so butchering it doesn't seem like a travesty. Thinking of using plumbing or surplus aircraft vents to put some vents toward my face. May not even attach to the heater box system... I like hot feet, cold face.

He made holes in the two ends of his dash in the indented portion where the shift pattern logo and heater controls are located. He used "generic" vents which he bought cheap at an auto a/c parts seller.

He also used a blower/evaporator from another car and had air from four vents, the two in the console (Behr faceplate) and the two located at each end of the dashboard. It worked very well and cold air was distributed in a more even manner throughout the interior.

HTH,

Harry

Check out the round vents from an Opel Manta, a hole saw would probably be the easy way to do it. Get your airflow from the boxed area under the hood either side of the heater. Air should be higher pressure and flow right in.

If you can find someone with the old (1979!) BMW CCA looseleaf Tech Tips book, there's an article in there on just how to do this. And since the article came from an old Roundel, if you or a friend has the Roundel on CD, you should be able to find the article via the search option. I think they used vents/controls from a Datsun 510...

Good Luck

    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
