Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

The thermostat is NOT in the heater in this case! The   292100300154 is the thermostat. Not the correct controller for the D1LCc though. As said above that is just on and off and on and off with the thermostat. Without seeing the wiring and testing the voltage in operation it will be hard to diagnos...

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

The 701 isn't meant for that heater that is why you will not get any error codes.

Again, what is the other controller?
This is the choice for the D1LCc:

Re: removing hi top

You have to cut from the inside - if you force the top outwards with wedges inside you put the sealant under tension and it cuts a lot easier. I wouldn't have thought that anyone could cut it from the outside with any degree of ease.

Re: Eberspacher D1LCC re-ignition problem.

That should be in a museum! They date from the 70's.
What is the controller other than the 701? ( the 701 dates from 30 years after the heater so it isn't surprising that you cannot see any fault display)

This Robert joined and for three days dug up several dead 5 year old and solved threads and posted on them, that is why the comment was made. Usually it is a spammer or someone with another agenda that behaves like that.

Re: Heated seat thermistor

On the Samba they say that it a NTC thermistor! ( Canadian Syncro ) Googling it seems that T4s and Passats are NTC also as are a lot of other vehicles.May well be worth double checking your source. Usually they are rated for resistance at 25 degrees rather than 10, PTC and NTC.

Re: 1981 hub carrier thread

Why? All the working threads are there. No more needed, certainly not all those in the peening slot zone.

Re: 1981 hub carrier thread

There isn't any thread where the washer goes - it goes under the nut and sits on the unthreaded portion. The slot continues a long way past the threads.( the washer slot is at the bottom)

That hasn't been overtightened, the working threads are intact except for the last 1/2 a thread.

Re: 1981 hub carrier thread

You have only lost about 1/2 a thread of 5 - all that that has been mullered by being forced off with the peening still in place plays no part in the retention of the nut as once the nut is correctly peened those outer threads serve no purpose as the shape is distorted. But I am not so sure about th...

Re: 1981 hub carrier thread

Nothing but a sign in to something called google drive request on that link!
I very much doubt that the thread is worn, it isn't very much thread as only has to cover this shiny thread in the nut.
