The top slide lever that controls the 3 speed fan only works sometime on the high setting. Is this fan independent of itself or do you need the switch in between the seats on at the same time? If I need to repair this switch how do I access it? Thank you for your continued help...

A/C

Vehicle Information: Model: 3.2 911; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 77k;

Chris,Thanks for your help with previous queries. I'm thinking now of fitting a/c to a 1989 911. The standard advice I get in Europe is that a/c units in older 911s are "too heavy"; "needs re-gassing every 6 months". I'm assuming there is more a/c experience and a/c units in the US. What are the lightest and best a/c units that can be retro-fitted to older 911s and is a/c in such cars really that much trouble?Many thanks

I am not using my air conditionning at all, and I am not certain that I will get it fixed this spring. Can I therefore, for one year, remove the belt and the compressoor unit, near the fan belt, and simply plug both hoses that go to and from the compressor ?I would like to lighten the car since I am not using the A/C at all because not working. I live in an area where a rolled down window gives me the cool air I require.

Removing the climate control unit

Vehicle Information: Model: C2; Year: 1992; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.6; Total Mileage: 190K;

I want to remove the climate control unit from the dash. I understand that this is accomplished using Blaupunkt radio tools which I have, but I'll be darned if I can figure out how to do it. Once inserted in the holes do they function like a puller?Could you give me a brief explanation?

Engine Compartment Blower

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 ; Year: 1984; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 84K;

The engine compartment blower has redeveloped a squeal when I turn on the heater. Last fall I had a similar problem which I solved by removing the blower and lubricating the motor bushings. This seems to have been a temporary fix. Short of replacing the blower motor, are there any other options I should try?
