Replace Heater Blower Motor and Core
« on: June 23, 2022, 17:24:22 »
Dear all,
I have just sourced a replacement heater/blower motor and a re-conditioned heater core.
Before I start work to replace them both any advice would be gratefully received.
Thanks so much
Best

Steve,
someone here said that the car is build around the heater, which is probably true.
You will have to remove a lot of components in and around the dash to get to it.

Hi,
everything you need to know you can find here:
https://www.w113.eu/geschlossen/Reparaturen/Pagode%20Bedienscheiben%20Luefter%20Luefterrad%20ausbauen.html.

I did it a few weeks ago, a real imposition.
I also replaced the sintered bearings of the blower motor with ball bearings, which is a significant improvement.

It is also worth removing the heat exchanger and cleaning it inside and out.
