  1. It looks like there is some issue with my blower switch on my Behr AC. My AC is going through a complete overhaul with parallel condenser, sanden compressor, hobie dave bracket etc. Apparently my blower switch has croaked. I have posted on WTB looking for a replacement. Beginning to think I may be up the creek. So, without having to scrap my overhaul which included a heater box refurb etc. What the hell do I do If I cannot find that goofball 4 terminal switch? Would it be possible for one of you electrically inclined individuals to create a new one? (via some electrical supply company) It would be a help for all the other Behr owners to at least have a viable option if theirs gives out. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Cheers! Vic
  2. Looking for the Blower switch for the AC console, that is unique to our 2002 Behr units. Just need a working switch or the faceplate with one attached. Thank you, Vic Leonardo.

    Behr AC system
  4. will consider parts seperately (sides, fascia, etc.)
  5. First off I would like to give Boyd Moterwerks the largest shout out ever. Excellent shop, knows 2002's really well. Have been instrumental in the recovery from one of the worlds worst restorations ever. Part of the revamp included an AC overhaul. Even after Boyd's excellent handiwork, the console still doesn't sit perfectly straight but not a critical issue. But more of my concern is the residual bodged plumbing and wiring work of the prior charlatans. Eric at Boyd's had to do some real detective work to figure out and fix what they did wrong and it works, but still blows a bit warmer than the old R12 unit. I will try and summarize without turning this into a novel. One issue: IE Radiator is too big. Mechanical fan removed and the Bodge boys decided that the small fan I purchased for the AC condenser would do the work of both.......😠. So it is hooked to a thermostat. they also could not figure out the wiring for the Behr switch that turns off the heater when the AC is turned on. It also was working perfectly when I dropped the car off. But now that part is impossible to find. So the "Fix" was to add a stupid toggle switch that looks like it belongs in a a B17 bomber to turn on the condenser fan if I needed it for cooling things down (car and ac?) and trashed the original console. But now driving it for a bit, it seems like the switch may turn on the condenser fan and the Sanden clone AC compressor... I get a drop in idle when I hit that switch like the compressor has kicked in. So bottom line: I need someone that knows the Behr AC setup well enough to make this right. (if possible) Any referral would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Attached is a very rough layout of my center console. It is for my Behr AC. The cardboard is the screen for the sniper. I need a couple of extra buttons. 1) Ac fan override 2) AC (maybe) 3) interior lights override. 4) Work lights(maybe) . The washers at the bottom are about the size of the buttons I was thinking of using. The grey nob is where the hazard is going. The old fog light switch is now a rear power trunk release. The stock knobs will be used and attached to a modern fan controller and thermostat. The radio has to go there because any higher it would crowd out the sniper screen, Just wondering if anyone has another place to put your extra switches, and what style you chose.
  7. Some background: A few years back, I removed the Behr A/C from my ‘72 tii. Didn’t work well, I didn’t like the look of the console, and I didn’t really use it much. I did not remove any of the wiring at the time. Fast forward: I’m working through wiring right now. I’ve got everything in the engine bay unwrapped, and have found three white/black wires leading to a relay mounted on the passenger side of the engine bay, right near the radiator. Standard black Bosch relay. I trace the first wire back to the cab of the car, and lo and behold, it isn’t connected to anything, and ends at one of two black/white wires capped and stuffed under the passenger side carpet (which I vaguely remember doing out of laziness when I took out the A/C). This sort of checks out based on reading about locations of A/C relays being on the front clip, passenger side, near the radiator. I don’t recall if the car had A/C installed as an option, or if the PO installed it during an early 90s rebuild. Anyways, I start tracing the second line. It leads to a solder on the big solder point under the brake fluid reservoir. “Great!” says I to me, as I take a swig of my Coors Banquet. “It’s the power to this little relay for the A/C.” Line number three then rears its ugly head. I trace it back through the driver’s side firewall, unwrapping harness as I go. It snakes around, and appears to lead to that “second” line that I capped and stuffed under the passenger side carpet when I took out the A/C. Granted, this is just a visual hunch based on how the harness routes under the dash. I want to undo all the wiring in the cab to confirm, but need to focus on the engine bay and getting my engine back together. I’m likely going to cap and label the ends of these lines, and tackle it when I redo wiring in the cab of the car. Then again, I could be totally wrong about what these wires are for. Conclusion: Don’t be lazy, and if you are going to be lazy, mark your work somehow so you don’t kick yourself later.
  8. Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): I want to remove my evaporator assembly to service it. Is the BEHR evaporator assembly (plastic box) just sitting on the transmission hump and only held in place by the refrigerant lines or are there fasteners that hold the assembly to the hump? I have a 1976 2002 with a BEHR AC assembly. The AC system has been converted by a prior owner to 134a refrigerant. The compressor is specific to 134a refrigerant so it is an “upgrade” from the original dealer installed R12 compressor. I haven’t taken the time to see if the condenser and condenser fan are upgrades, but squinting through the louvers in the nose lead me to believe that the condenser and its fan seem newer than having been there since 1976. The condenser fan measures 11” in diameter and “u-turn” manifold piping extend beyond the condenser fan by about 1” on each side. The evaporator assembly appears to be the original dealer installed equipment. I’ve owned the car for just a couple of years and the AC system worked well in Raleigh and more recently in Orlando – tough climates. Recently, the evaporator fan stopped blowing. The fan blower switch didn’t operate smoothly anymore. I suspected a power problem as the system worked fine ever since I bought it. The compressor clutch engaged/disengaged; the air inside the evaporator assembly at the squirrel cage fan felt cold to the finger; the condenser fan blew when the compressor was engaged. When I looked into the ends of the squirrel cage evaporator fan ends (with the console fully assembled), I could see that the evaporator fan was not spinning. Infrequently, but not always, the squirrel cage would engage for a brief second when I spun (or “primed”) it with my finger it with the AC system turned on. I took the console apart (the car still has the “U” shaped console brace). There is a bit of discrete “craftsmanship” (literally, popsicle sticks and crazy glue) used to connect the trapezoidal console face to the underside of the dash and to the brace at the bottom – but is holds tight, doesn’t squeak while driving and it is serviceable once I’ve removed the side panels and the shifter’s boot/console assembly. I suspected that the evaporator fan motor had a power issue – either a poor connection or possibly the electrical components to the fan are worn or dirty. In order to remove the evaporator assembly, it was obvious that I would have to disconnect the evaporator intake and discharge hoses. The system was charged so I took it to a mechanic who had some 2002 experience, but not much “institutional knowledge” retained with their service team – but they were willing to try. They were honest and I effectively paid some of their tuition as they worked on the car. The mechanic diagnosed a faulty fan blower switch. I am sure this was part of the problem. The selector knob didn’t operate smoothly anymore – turns out a ball bearing had been dropped out of its race. I sourced a replacement switch from Tsingtao_1903 (thank you!), took his apart by drilling out the 1 ½” rivets and serviced my switch by harvesting some springs and I will harvest a back panel. This will improve my switch’s functionality as well as its structural integrity. The mechanic reinstalled the fan blower switch and put the console back to together. The evaporator fan motor still won’t spin. I hit the pause button with the mechanic. I am inclined to perform the diagnostic work (if not the repair work) myself, at this point. I’ve learned a lot from the book: Just Needs a Recharge – The Hack Mechanic Guide to Vintage Air Conditioning, by Rob Siegel. I want to now pull the evaporator assembly and take a look at the fan blower motor. Before I take the car into a mechanic to evacuate the refrigerant so I can remove and service the fan motor, does anyone have any advice?

  10. I'm sure this has been done before, but I wanted to see if anyone has any photos or advice. I'd like to add air conditioning to my '75 to deal with these Atlanta summers, but all of the aftermarket center consoles look, well, aftermarket. I want to keep the stock look, so that would mean hiding the evaporator in the engine bay and routing some vent tubing to direct the air into the cabin somewhere. Is there a reason I shouldn't do this? Does the engine bay get too hot? Maybe the glovebox is a better option? Those with experience please chime in, I'm new to the A/C game.
  11. I suppose it only makes sense: as '02 prices appear to skyrocket, so do parts prices. Less than a year ago, an Aussie fellow re-listed an NOS Behr A/C faceplate on U.S. eBay 4 or 5 times. He received not a single bid at his $200 opening price, shipping included (he also offered a $400 Buy It Now, which seemed laughable since no one would offer $200). He eventually withdrew the faceplate. Now we have a used example of the same faceplate for $372 plus shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/261820625782?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT It's time to re-think that restoration budget! Regards, Steve
