Missing heater ducts and box

Post by claudine »

There is a bracket at the top of the tranny tunnel with two bolts and nothing attatched, all of the ducting is missing too. I am curious as to what gets mounted there and what does the left air cable attatch to.

Do you have the two braces at the firewall. Those two studs could be for those

As Paul stated, if this is the bracket there should be two braces attached. The other end is attached to the firewall cowl area behind each end of the dash. You may want to get a copy of the Parts Illustrated Manual if you do not have one.
Hope this helps, Mark
