Air Conditioner Vents on NAS 110 - How to hold direction of flow?

On the NAS Panel, here are 5 simple (but expensive to replace at $27.00 per) louver vents. Mine no longer hold position (to direct air in a specific direction) when they are set to direct airflow, in fact they want to flip up and close. I have tried gum, pens, barbwire etc. to hold them (ie the direction of the internal louver) but am hoping someone out there knows of the majic way to hold them in position. or even better, what Fiat or Crosley cross reference is known that Rover got them from in the first place? Thanks in advance!

Hi, I owned NAS D110 200/500 for a couple of years and experienced the same thing. Rip off the rear fin from a Zoom or other brand plastic fishing lure (worm or lizard) and wedge it in between the center vertical louver and the top horizontal piece. Works perfectly and adds just the right amount of redneck "patina" to your expensive rig.

Solution in alpha test!

Ronís post got me thinking, and I installed a small strip of the "hooking" side of a Velcro adhesive piece to the inside of each vent where the horizontal louver now moved against the vent frame, with the Velcro now providing drag.

Now if I could just get the A/C Compressor Clutch to consistently engage.... . Thanks Ron for the help. COSteve

Steve, the ECU senses when the engine coolant temp is 'too hot' and shuts off the AC. Sensor might be bad, or could also be too much pressure in the AC system.

Might be!

Doug,

Is that the same sensor that the temp gauge is reading from? or is there an additional sensor?

I think you may be onto something, assuming that the shop where I had work done on the hoses (new one fabricated) did the r-12 load correct as they evacuated the R-12 and said I was in fact a little heavy and the high pressure cutoff was being tripped. After they recharged the cooling was noticeably cooler at the vent.

But this new symptom is that the compressor clutch stops engagement. Also read RN newest flyer and Robinson was talking about worn clutches and that you have to remove a shim to compensate for wear?
