Heater control valve -Brat
Posted 09 December 2005 - 02:48 PM
I have a new heater core coming in today.
I just now remembered that the EA81s have the heater control valve instead of a diverter flap.
Of course there aren't any HCVs in town, and it's Friday.
Can a heater control valve be cleaned out or refurbished?
Does anybody have a picture of one?

Dealer only part $100-130 depending on where you shop....
I've replaced 2 of them. the first one actually had one of the brass tabs gone that held the valve together, and the other the plastic stopper that slides to direct the flow, had been corroded enough, and the action was compromised.
both had leaked a bit as some point too....

Now, did you glue the removed piece back onto the box afterward? I can't tell from the pics.

I got a replacement valve from the u-pull-it here for $5. So if youve got a scrap yard near ya Id try there first. Unless you think its repairable.

no, the piece(s) I cut out were in bad shape so I just tossed it. the core went in pretty snuggly, so there wasn't much room for leakage.... I may have taped up some stuff, but I doubt it... never had any problems with it.

Low airflow.....maybe a faulty blower. Or if you live out in the country, it's not unheard of if a mouse hasn't build a nest in the air tunnels after the blower. Especially, if you leave crumbs of food in the car on a regular basis like I do.
