Subject: Vent function question, advice please.

I recently replaced my mode switch, blower motor, blower motor 
relays. Circuit breakers, and vacuum solenoid for the center vents.

On max ac, I get the center vents to function, but if I switch it to 
vent or heater, the center vent closes. ???

On my other cars on the heater & vent settings the center vent stays 
open, but not on 16851 (the one I'm doing hvac work on)

Also even after replacing the blower motor, fan speed relays, new 
circuit breakers, I still have no 1 & 3 fan speed?

And ideas on the center vent issues and the two missing fan speeds?

Thanks,

Joe O'Brien

Using procedures I gleaned from Sanden's website, I saw that the pressure between the high and low side would equalize in only 20 seconds after being turned off. The spec is at least 2 minutes. I then recovered enough Freon so that the compressor would cycle normally, 7 sec on, 9 sec off. I went on a test drive and everything worked well for about 5 minutes, then quit. Returning home and connecting my gauges, I saw that the pressure in both the high and low sides was 80 psi. I believe the compressor is toasted. I'll update after I install a new one.

Subject: Shifting issue - Manual

Not a big problem, but I sometimes have trouble shifting into second, 
most when downshifting from a higher gear.  I'm not not sure if I am 
grinding second gear or trying to shove it into reverse by accident. 
Are there linkage adjustments or tightening of hardware that I should 
routinely check anyway?  Shifting doesn't seem very tight, anyway (is 
it supposed to be) Do I get access to linkage under stick boot?  
Perhaps there's a clutch line/pedal adjustment, instead?

Also, I haven't checked transmission fluid since I got the car.  Is 
this easy to check, top off?

Sorry I don't have my manuals with me right now. It's probably all in 
there, right?

Thanks,

Paul

Subject: Was: AC system compressor doesn't cycle, Now: AC pressure switch

Yes, I know all about the switch, I went through the "adjust it" 
then "don't adjust it" advice on the DML back in 2001  :)  I eneded up 
buying a new switch back then. 

I did an interesting (to me anyway) experiment recently. I had my 
new switch and the old original rusty one which I had no idea if it 
had been tampered with in the past. Using some bits of hose and ac 
fittings, I hooked the new switch to my pressure regulator I use for 
HVLP paint spraying. Starting at 0 psi, I slowly increased the air 
pressure until switch closed. You can hear it close, and I used a 
meter to verify. I did this a few times and consistantly the switch 
closed at 40 psi of air. It was easy then to reset the original 
switch to match.   Might be useful if anyone has a bunch of switches 
with misadjusted settings lying around. At $9, just buying a new 
switch is probably the best idea.

Subject: Re: Rear Louvers hitting stainless T-Panel

Not exactly.  The universal joints are different tools.  Wobbly extensions
have undercut attachments at the socket end so that the socket 
wobbles instead of being held steady on the end of the extension.  This
doesn't give as much range of motion as a universal jointed socket, 
but is sometimes just enough to get the socket onto the bolt or nut.

Elvis,

As far as I know, yes.  The car does idle fine once it's running so I would 
assume the idle regulator is functioning.  So are you saying that when I 
shut the car off the idle regulator should move to the fully open position? 
If so I can check for that.

Subject: Re: Shifting issue - Manual

Hi Paul,

Sounds like the 2nd gear syncro is damaged or the roll
pin the holds it is broken.

Very common problem on the Renault UN1 gearbox.  The
box must be removed and them the syncro or roll pin
must be replaced.

Double check the linkages but it does sound like the
box itself

John,

Thanks, if I can't get this figured out I may borrow your K-Jet tester.

Subject: best battery to put in

Hi Folks -
Time to replace my battery.  Was using a DIEHARD and
it lasted ~6 yrs.  I realize that's about it but I'd appreciate
anyone's suggestions on what is the best battery to use?
Thanks 
Steve

Joe, We just had one in our shop almost the same way. After making sure the
mode switch was transferring power to the fan switch by the LG wire I opened
up the fan switch and repaired it and everything worked fine.

Subject: [DML] Vent function question, advice please.


I recently replaced my mode switch, blower motor, blower motor
relays. Circuit breakers, and vacuum solenoid for the center vents.

On max ac, I get the center vents to function, but if I switch it to
vent or heater, the center vent closes. ???

On my other cars on the heater & vent settings the center vent stays
open, but not on 16851 (the one I'm doing hvac work on)

Also even after replacing the blower motor, fan speed relays, new
circuit breakers, I still have no 1 & 3 fan speed?

And ideas on the center vent issues and the two missing fan speeds?

Thanks,

Joe O'Brien

The center vent function is controlled by the mode switch.  Either the 
maze is indexed wrong or is the wrong one entirely.
Check the resister pad in the evap box for speeds 1 & 3.  The coils may 
be broken or the connection broken.
