Just a question for the forum.

After struggling mightily to reinstall the assembled lever arm face plate assembly back into the fibreglass console with the cables attached a few times , is there a better way of doing it ? Should you install the face plate assembly bare and then reattach the cables afterwards ? Is there a secret to this?

Also if you want to replace the face plate is it possible to pull the pivot pin out to remove the levers to replace the face plate? I don't recall the pivot pin being removable ?

I had to grind off the pin that goes through the levers, paint and reassemble with a bolt of similar size.

The control box shape was distorted by (I believe) the press they used on the pin end.

If you're having the car reupholstered don't have them use padding on the side where the heater and AC control are on, what a bear.

im going to leave the control in the consel and try and hook up the cable ends to the heater/evap.
