Heater hookup

How do I hook up this heater cable to the heater box. ? Can someone take a pic of theirs so I can see what I am missing?

Here's a close up, maybe you just wrap the wire around the bar?

Well, you could use some duct tape, at least it will match the paint . You must have a newer style or something. Heat's over rated anyway.

Yeah, I have the newer heater. Maybe a 97 has this style hookup. I looked in the parts book and there is no pics of this at all.

The 97 hookup is the same as Mike's. Maybe try posting to the LR Enthusiast forum. Lot's of Euro presence there.

Mime will be far too early - 1985 but I'll photo if you think it'll help.
In fact my heater is even earlier than Mike H's. The heater is the same style as the 300 tdi.

Does anyone have an old heater box that you can salvage the arm off for me? I was told by George from RDS that the heater I have has an arm on it that LR made a mistake with then later corrected it so there are no parts for it. HE said to change the arm to the standard style. Can anyone help?

If you get really stuck I know of a field near me with several LRs being broken. But I'm in GB and you're in NJ..... there'd be some postage and probably a token amount for the bracket & lock screw

Mike, I might take you up on that. I have one more place to look today. IF not, That would be great and I will send payment for whatever it costs... These little pieces are a pain in the ass.

why dont you crimp a ring on the end of your wire and thread the post on the heater arm. Place the ring on the post and thread a nut onto the newly thread post to secure it. That should work.

Since it is a defective part, what's the right way? What's your solution? Open the wallet and dole out cash for a new part without seeing if you can make this one work? What is there to loose but maybe 20min worth of labor

I have too agree, I have "modified" things when I didn't have the parts I needed on hand to do the job. And when it's something as small as the heater controls I would not be to worried if I had to rig it with duct tape, bailing wire and bubble gum, not that I would . But what Dave suggested sounds like a good idea to me.

Does this look like the work of a guy who bodges

Well anyway, Randy just drop me an email if you want me to nip along and salvage the part/parts. Will you want both arms - on/off and "temperature control"?
I can't see that it'll cost that much at all.

OK to make things even Randy buy the part from Mike, then wrap it in duct tape , and this better not hold you up going to Rausch!
