  1. https://www.dtechparts.com/ultimate-complete-ac-heat-kit-for-bmw-2002/
  2. A slightly different approach to recommending kits, parts, systems, trim sets, bumpers, drive train etc. All shown on a recently completed 74 restomod build car. This car built with many of kits and systems we sell new including modern heat and air conditioning, stainless bumpers, trim, interior finish out etc. The listing has pictures of many of kits and system used in car all available new Also, we warehouse thousand of used parts generally don't advertise but bet we have it http://www.dtechparts.com/1974-bmw-2002-silver-restomod/
  3. Your Inka 2002 looking great ! Inka with new stainless trim and stainless bumpers just hard to beat A number of ways to solve that clip near door hinge. We source and install a stainless tim kit that has been detailed to have same edges as original and can provide 2 or 3 different methods to secure that mounting clip for door trim Stainless is a great upgrade for many reason but my favorite is it is much harder to dent with a minor impact. http://www.dtechparts.com/bmw-2002-oem-belt-molding-full-set-with-steel-clips/
  4. @reyes02 you can easily just install the new evaporator and console and leave caps on the AC lines until you are ready to do AC install under hood. We just did this for a client under same situation as yours. Based on our experience could be about same as labor, time, parts (Bosch motor, new heater valve, new cables) and frustration of trying to glue, patch, fix motor resistors of old heater box. The original heater box design was probably the only poorly engineered system on a 2002. Electric motor potrudes into cowl gets wet when washing car or in weather eventually wipes it out. Hard to get to and allows vapors and fumes into cabin. Replacing with modern system really upgrades usability of car if driving alot in inclement weather. We have stacks of old heater boxes and what i tell clients is heater box is patchable but eventually it just will be unusable especially because of plastic deterioration of plastic mounts that hold heater fan in place. If do not repair / mount correctly motor and fan runs off balanced and unusable (makes noise) etc. Later when need presents itself you just add int ac components under hood and have both ac and heat. Really a pretty slick strategy to incrementally upgrade vehicle
  5. Someone posted they were confused why we charge extra for an AC bracket. We now offer a steel bracket similar to the new "Aluminum" bracket but in steel as aluminum is not good for long term dynamic tension on AC system. Aluminum fatigues under the significant tension AC bracket is under. We also offer our original bracket evolved from period brackets that comes with new tensioner pulley, eccentric even industrial belt that does not stretch like normal auto belt (if requested). This early model bracket that installs to water pump brackets is REQUIRED on 71 and older blocks as the non tension pulley will not work on these early model blocks as the thread insert on top below cylinder head are not there The other reason our base under hood kit does not include AC bracket is it is designed to refresh an AC car with all new components and we also offer an adapter plate to adapt any original AC bracket to Sanden compressor. All about making system as cost effective as possible for clients Lastly, our kit is fully custom designed to fit in the 2002. Every component has been tested and proven in literally hundreds of installations over several years in vehicles we build and or customer vehicles. We have deployed this kit on BMW 2002's, CS Coupes and various other vintage trucks and cars. Call us with any questions as always ready to help customers make the system accomplish what they want. We are releasing a version of our console that looks nearly identical to original Behr system if that is look you desire. We also have adapter console for 3 VDO gauges, various flat screen stereo, vintage stereos and even orig Blaupunk stereos. This console is generally available as coming out of manufacturing now. System does come with a steel block of plate properly sized and does include butyl rubber material to install and seal to keep engine fumes from cabin We will soon produce a install through pictures pdf on our site. We keep 100's of installs documented via pictures and generally can give customers who purchase system access to see solutions to unique challenges they encounter. For example very detailed pictures of how to make a small penetration in fire wall for heater hoses and AC lines, how to seal, how to align with transmission tunnel Here is link to current website listings. Look to these listings for pictorial. Until then here is a closeup pic of penetration for current build we are doing 74 ! This cut is slightly larger than needed due to clean up we did on this car from previous holes for ac hoses in that area we replaced. There is no right or wrong way to do and requires very little change to the tunnel. We generally slightly adjust the tunnel near firewall with hammer to make servicing the AC expansion valve and heater control valve inside engine bay easier. It is also important to line up drain hole for unit and it slides right in https://photos.app.goo.gl/6hzBNjnMpgRY3KvXA here is unit installed ready for final connections and a bit of detailing https://photos.app.goo.gl/a2fcAhNyWeCHavDi9 Inside evaporator unit, console, controls, vents, wiring, expansion heater valve etc. As option we can install fittings on AC hoses but generally advise clients to make runs at short and clean as possible to optimize system flow. But have crimped for many clients and they have no problems. http://www.dtechparts.com/bmw-2002-e10-air-conditioning-ac-and-heat-evaporator-kit-new-redesigned-as-modern-car/ Underhood kit to update existing AC car does not include bracket http://www.dtechparts.com/bmw-2002-ac-air-conditioning-under-hood-complete-kit/ AC bracket http://www.dtechparts.com/ac-compressor-bracket-for-bmw-2002-m10-engine/ also have slightly less expensive bracket (similar to new alum or hobie dave bracket) that works great but only on 71 and up year engine blocks. We make these in volume now so working to drive cost down for the 'budget" constrained buyers. Lastly, again to keep costs down for buyers we create custom ABS plastic extruded console in similar finish as original aftermarket AC system (Clardy, Beher, Fridgking) for those partial to vintage look. We also offer and prefer covering console in vinyl or leather with a french stitch in various colors and offer this as n upgrade. We also happy to explain to customer how they can have this done locally by upholstery shop of their choice. A sample pic of covered console right before install. When you order a complete kit we generally discount this upholstery work http://www.dtechparts.com/ac-center-console-custom-stitch/ https://photos.app.goo.gl/PWi5hqVWMUX6bBHF7 Properly deploying this upgrade to a 2002 dramatically improves car but obviously touches on several systems in car and best for folks to call us and talk through needs. We are always available to answer questions and provide detailed instructions when needed. Have a number of leading vintage BMW repair shops who have now installed, love the system so likely professional help available. We have many clients that ship vehicles to use for this install. Generally our much lower labor rates make this cost effective for customers and a lot less hassle then DIY or coaching a local shop. Although, in coaching dozens of shops all have gotten complete system up and running So if you want to buy pieces and parts from a "distributor" that does not use and or design then please do. You will find we know every part, how it works, can give you personal attention to make you successful indirectly over phone or email or just ship up the car and we provide turnkey service and ship car back. Here is a 74 in special siver custom built, with our stainless trim, bumpers, custom AC / heat system etc. that is just being completed https://photos.app.goo.gl/FnCofGmAz7Tn3WkM9 Cheers "Free advice costs you nothing unless you act on it"

  10. Here is link to the 2002 enthusiasts wishing your had a modern HVAC system for your 2002. We built this system have installed in several dozen 2002's with 100% success. Here is updated look with ABS console similar to Behr with AC, controls, 1DIN stereo and 3 VDO gauge as well as cupholder on side Pictures represent just a few of layouts of ac vents, controls, stereo head unit, VDO gauge cutouts, upholstery finish available. If you have another suggestion for your preferred layout we can have custom extruded in ABS plastic ! http://www.dtechparts.com/custom-console-with-ac-stereo-gauge-layout/ This is a $150 upgrade from the standar kit that we can include for free with order of kit ! Limited time offer http://www.dtechparts.com/bmw-2002-e10-air-conditioning-ac-and-heat-evaporator-kit-new-redesigned-as-modern-car/ We have even refined unit and install to make easier for owner to do all or most before involving AC professional to check vacuum and charge system with R134a Call us with any questions have helped 50 or so folks self install or instruct their AC / mechanic pro to install ! Maybe single best upgrade you can do for you 2002 and all in cost is less then refurbing busted up heater box. valve, heat exchanger, fan and fan mount, cables as well as refurbing old Behr, Clardy ofr Fridgiking AC add on unit ! We have done 100's of refurbs of heater boxes, and old dealer systems so know first hand the tradeoff and costs !

  12. We have done this with all modern internals and a Behr close look. We can also put a Behr front AC plate on the front of our kit ! We recently have created our consoles out of ABS plastic that is very close to look of Behr. Have even created unit with AC, 3 VDO gauges, controls and 1 DIN stereo all on front face ! http://www.dtechparts.com/custom-console-with-ac-stereo-gauge-layout/ here is complete interior AC / heat console. Can adapt your Behr faceplate or just use our new ABS plastic face plate that is very close to Behr look http://www.dtechparts.com/bmw-2002-e10-air-conditioning-ac-and-heat-evaporator-kit-new-redesigned-as-modern-car/ Cheers
  13. please let me know if you have a driver side hood catch (part that mounts on inside edge of hood that secures hood when pulling lock down lever thanks
  14. Blunt bracket looks slick and sure will work for later model cars and save weight. Our experience installing all sorts of AC system (old and new) we created a bracket that works on all M10 blocks regardless of existence of top mounting holes to keep things consistent. Has top mounting holes if available and mounting holes through water pump and timing chain bolts as well as bolts on top. It can be used with the slide adjustable brackets for Sandin compressor or with traditional with eccentric and tensioner.pulley. Costs a bit more to use the eccentric and pulley with a special non stretch belt but seems to be easier to maintain. Always good to have options ! http://www.dtechparts.com/ac-compressor-bracket-for-bmw-2002-m10-engine/
  15. nice car, always love Golf yellow. Looks like has been repainted a bit lighter then orig Golf ? What is your phone ?
