Replacement heater....

Post by Oxymoron » Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:18 pm

My next project is to replace the leaky heater matrix, which has been bypassed up until now.

I've bought a replacement heater box to renovate with new foam, paint and a matrix which came with the car!

The idea is that it will save time when I take the old heater out, as the replacement will be ready to go!

Heater now partially apart, although I still need to drill out several rivets to remove the heater flaps, having already removed loads of rusty screws!...

I've had enough restoring this one!😁

It will just be nice to know that I won't be breathing in decayed foam and rust when I put the fan on!😎

You should be so lucky only breathing in rust and foam, today I got to clearing out my matrix.....wondered where the rat that was eating through the wiring had gone!
I should be taking photos but afraid that nobody else will sit in the car once done.

I bought a low mileage RX8 to run around in until I found a Scimitar last year and as it had been stood in a barn for 5 years, it had become a rodent hotel!
When I serviced it I found nut casings, bedding and droppings in the air filter housing and cabin air filter too! :shock:
