Title: Heater control cables
Post by: andyps on 08 September, 2020, 09:58:34 PM
Whilst replacing the heater control valve on my car I realised that the control cable wasn't working effectively. Tracing it through it seems to be that the outer sheath is no secured near the lever for the hot/cold slider so I guess it needs replacing. As far as I can see there doesn't look to be an easy way to access it so hoping someone can tell me how it is done - especially if it can be done without dismantling the whole dash.

The other question is where to get new cables, but better add I haven't phoned Omicron yet so hope they can help!

Andy, thereís a lot of detail about replacing heater control cables in my S2 rebuild thread: Report on (Slow) S2 rebuild. Look at page 34 onwards.  My dash top was removed when I overhauled my controls. I canít imagine how the job could be done any other way.

And, yes, Omicron have the cables. I had to replace my top one

Thanks Norm, I must have missed that page so will have a read about it.

I did speak to Omicron yesterday and they confirmed that they do make the cables. I've decided to prioritise getting the car going and having a test drive, hopefully before the weather gets too bad and then I'll sort the cables over the winter when I don't want the car on the road anyway.
