View Full Version : Paper Clamp Repair on Climate Control Unit

03-14-2011, 08:57 PM
I have a 2007 NCV with no factory rear heat. My climate control unit has a Paper Clamp on the right hand side of the control unit (in lieu of a rear heat temp controller), which broke this year. I was told by my dealer that the paper clamp is part of the $800 climate control unit, and is not replaceable.

This morning i was able to repair the clamp in about 20 minutes using a modified meccano part, and epoxy glue.

Will post pictures if this is a common problem and there is any interest.

On the off-chance that the epoxy doesn't hold up, try ABS glue(weld). Most of the plastics are abs.
