heater box foam

Disassembled dash including lower part for clean-up and sorting of wiring. Attached is a picture of the outlet vent of the heater core/box. Airflow is controlled by a flap. This flap appears to be insulated with a foam material, which is crumbling. Can anyone suggest a replacement source for this foam, preferably with self-adhesive on the back. Looking for direct links, actual part #'s.

Did you search heater box foam on here? You can also call Rovers North or the like and they can help even without a part number.

heater box foam

Thanks,

Already did that. "heater foam" pulls up threads about the heater box. The Rovers North catalog lists the whole heaterbox assembly. Will call them tmrw. I have a feeling this repair will entail sourcing foam from a crafts supply store and cutting and gluing it.

I went to Lowe's And picked up some foam material. I had to spray sticky on it but it did the trick.

While you're at it you may want to look at the lower heater vents in the dash. The flaps that cover the holes so the air is directed up through the defroster vents also has that foam on them. the foam was totally gone on mine so you could never fully block the vents off making for hot feet in the summer and inefficient defroster performance. Keep us posted on what you end up using

Go to your local commercial HVAC outlet & get some 1/8" x 1/2" closed cell ducting gasket. It's self adhesive, sticks like the proverbial and won't soak up water. Use that to put a strip round the edge of the flap where it contacts the body of the heater. Also works well on sealing up gaps around seat boxes etc... and it's cheap too
