Right here goes, anyone ever thought about putting the blend motors where they belong, the dustbin, well i will keep my P38 untill it dies or me and i was replacing another blend motor and i thought about returning it to good old reliable cable, i can fit the cable to the controls on the heater box ok and the heater controls from a Volvo F10 truck will fit straight in where the ash tray is.

Sounds stupid i know but watch this space, i am on a weeks holiday and have nothing to lose only my temper

Holy crap batman, that is brilliant!

I've thought about the cable idea, but never could think of a place to hide any controls save for console or glovebox. You have pegged the control head and location! The cables themselves are super easy to fabricate. I just made up a set for a 73 Rangie. As long as you have no tight corners that would create a kink routing should be relatively easy.

Get us some pics and a brief write up and we'll have John place it on the home page section! :thumb:

The idea is sooo stupid that there are several of us who will probably copy it in short order. Mine have been failing for a couple years, and are ready now.

I am not going to bother about different temp for driver and passenger as i cant see the point, its a bit like passenger side no smoking and driver's side smoking, another thing i have done is i have a female jack plug wired from the battery to the rear talegate, if i get locked out with a faulty door latch as i have done before i just plug in the male plug into the female plug i get power to the rear talgate and can open the hatch, sometimes i think i have to much time on my hands.

The female plug is fitted in the front grill, you have to look very hard to see it.

That's friggin epic...and so true. I think split controls is overrated also.

Another great idea! Pics please, as I know a lockout is in my future sometime.

Investigate the AUDI control panel too, on some audis they used the same hevac unit.

It can be done as there were very basic P38s made for certain markets and they had the manual controls.
If you still have your hand bok it shows a picture of it in there

Its fine when I am on my own but with the lady in the car I would be cooked alive....I have the AC set to LOW and she sets her side to 28! :shock:

I do like the sounds of relocating the entire control panel for the ac, I wonder weather one from a disco/softdash classic might be a close fit?
