    I wanna E21 coolant branch

    I believe this is the divider that you need:
  2. Purchased my 73 that originally had a BEHR installed. The previous owner had removed the compressor and condenser along with its engine compartment hoses. Living in SLC, summers can get quite hot, so I bought a electronic controlled DITEC unit and outsourced hoses, condenser, Spal fan, Hobie Dave bracket & Sanden rotary compressor. Removing the original BEHR unit and installing the DITEC was not an easy task. Took a lot of pounding on the trans tunnel to make the base portion fit, not to mention the firewall alignment issue for the heat & Freon fittings exit. If I had known that the unit also came with a side fitting exit rather than my forward exit, that would have been my choice, as I could have used the original hose paths and eliminated additional firewall holes. My system is now installed with the remaining task of figuring out the wiring, as the supplied instructions for a 2002 install were vague & minimal. I still have the original BEHR unit and control cables that I am willing to donate locally (too lazy to ship). Purchase my 73 that originally had a BEHR installed.docx

    Do you have this style water divider with two threaded temp sensor ports and the heater stub pointed to the rear (photo attached) ? If you do, how much? Thanks,

    I don't think a 39 offset will work on a 2002.

    dual sensor water manifold

    The one on the left is what I am looking for but the corrosion appears pretty bad. I am willing to try to sand and buff it if your willing to accept $20 + postage for it.

    I have a 73 2002. I need to convert my engine bay passenger side relay mount from a 1 slot capacity to a 3 or 4 holder mount. I believe the item from a later model is # 41 14 1 852 111. Do you have one and how much? Thanks

    no power to sindshield wiper switch?

    My error. Since obtaining my 73 2002 , I haven't been exposed to rain, so until now I haven't used the stalk. Now I realize that the right stalk is associated with the windshield wiper system. Still working on the solution to my lack of power situation.

    Betsy, Have you joined Salt Lake City's local Wasatch BMW club? I am a member but there is a scarcity of 2002's at the regular events. Would love to see others to compare issues and tips. Mine is a 73.
  12. I had the same issue on one side when I did the conversion. Discovered it was the bulb socket contacts had a weak return spring allowing one of the two contact wires protrude and short circuit at the base of the bulbs two contact points. Make sure you have an inline fuse on each turn signal circuit.

    no power to sindshield wiper switch?

    Mike, Thanks for the info. My 2002 is a 1973 but doesn[t have wiper control on the turn signal stalk. Yes, I would appreciate your notes on trouble shooting the switches. Gregg MBamboatcomcast.net
