HVAC controls repair (rear window defrost circuit)

Post by wanderingvan »

HVAC controls can be opened and repaired. Have just completed the removal and teardown of the HVAC control panel to fix rear defrost circuit. Turns out much like the ABS control unit having bad solder joints the same goes for the relay and timer circuit board in HVAC controls. One bad solder joint resoldered and good as new.

Fantastic. Did you take any photos?
I didn't get any bad solder joints in my Astro, but I didn't have rear defog.

What I do is to upload by attachment. If you open the full editor under the draft, preview and submit buttons are two file tabs, hit the attachments tab then the add files button. It will open a window for you to find the file. I'm currently on PC but I think phone is similar, hit the place in line button and you get this -

It looks like @wanderingvan was able to upload his photos. I found these in the orphaned files.
