Heater box parts


Mike A

Recommended Posts

. The PO arse buggered up the one that came with the car so badly that I wouldn't want to trust a repair to the valve mount as it only has one original bolt hole.  Beyond that the plastic surface is goobered up with excess adhesive, paint and all sorts of boogers. The balance of the parts are restorable. Should anyone have a cannabilized heater box with a decent top section and willing to sell,  please PM.  Thanks a heap.

….and like most of us, way too many (maybe 30 at last count) I wish I hadn't sold ?

Truth be told, the heater hoses themselves are stiff enough to hold the valve in place nicely.  I broke part of the valve bracket while trying to wrestle off a petrified, 26 year old hose that connects the valve with the neater core.  I was all set to make a reinforcement piece when I discovered the valve control worked fine once I had replaced both hoses and tightened the clamps.  

 

And a little paint remover will take the overspray off the exposed part of the heater box...

^^That’s pretty much what I have found..
but.fashioning a reinforcement like I have seen on this forum just gives a little more confidence that things won’t move around so much...adding another task to the list

I have a spare full heater box in serviceable shape with cables if you need it.  I'm not planning to part it out, but PM me if you want the whole thing.

+2 on the Mikes' comments. I've rebuilt 3 heater boxes (3 for 3, one for every '02 I owned), and they all had broken brackets. The valve works just fine without the bracket. They were all roundies with brass valves, by the way.

Check this out, easy repair. 

Just did mine and that looks very familiar. 

yes...that's pretty much what my DIY repair kit looks like. although not quite as slick. My problem is that only one mounting hole was left on the broken bracket

Yes, that’s what mine was like as well.  The Aluminium piece is L shaped and there was room to put rivets down into the box as well.

    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
