Heater Core Installed  5/21/2016

We started at 8AM in Dave's driveway while it was raining hard.
The dash is out: WOW! That only took 1 hour.
Notice the moisture on the inside of the front windshield!
I had been reading on various Blogs  that this whole process would take at least 2 days(this is why I drove 800 miles
from Portland to Salt Lake City to have Dave's help.)

This is directly in front of the passenger seat.
This black plastic box you see is for the A/C unit and fan.
Here is 1/2 of the heater core air distribution box.  It has 3 flaps that distribute the air where you choose.
Notice the 6 large holes in the flaps.  They were covered by foam that goes to seed after 20 years.
We replaced the crumbling foam with 3M 3340 Aluminum tape, which should last 50 years.
This is the other half of the heater core air distribution box.
There are 3 flaps and a motor for each.
This if where the heater core air distribution box mounts to the fire wall.  You can see one of the two holes.
Here is the heater core air distribution box put back together with the inlet and outlet tubes from the heater core through the
fire wall and the silver bracket that holds it securely in place.
This is the bad heater core.  If you look at the lower part of the picture, you can see some gunk, junk that clogged
up the bottom of the core, which is why I had to change it.

A hugh Thank You to my newfound fellow Audi nut for his invaluable work, even in the rain.
When we started at 8AM is was raining.  When we were done at 1PM, the sun was out.
That is only 5 hours to do the whole thing where most people take 2 days!

7/15/2016 - I steam cleaned my wheels and then coated them with Opti-Seal, so that they would be easier to 

clean off the brake dust.
