Cabin Vent/Heater/Defrost


Recommended Posts

Greetings all! Just bought a 1978 B210 in 601 Mint Green Metallic. It's an amazing car and I love it. There isn't much that I need to do on it but I did preventative maintenance before driving (oil change (engine, trans, diff), filter change (fuel oil), and brake checks (flush).


A few things that I need to do: figure out why I only get static on the radio, figure out the heater/defrost system hose routing, sort the anti-dieseling switch/system, get a flasher that will allow me to use LEDs, and install AC before next summer arrives and toasts me.


Since it's starting to cool down I'm tackling the Vent/Heater/Defrost issue first. The center console has a blower in it and I can see where it attaches, two hoses run on each side up to the Defrost channels. And the center console vents work on Vent, but not Heat. The vents in the dash (the ones that you can point at your face that are round) can open and close but are clearly not connected to anything. Does anyone have a photo or diagram of the routing for these hoses to connect the dash vents to the blower and the heater?


Not sure if this works but here are the posts of the car when I got it on Instagram. If you need/want more to help with the issue let me know and I'll snap some and upload them.
