Does anyone know where I can buy an original heater control cable?

Hi Dave,
Can you advise if the one you got from the club is original or an equivalent? The original has a hexagonal brass shaft with a knob matching the windscreen wiper switch. The one I got was more like a choke cable or a diesel stop cable.
Cheers
Dave

Hmmm, your right Dave, its not correct.Why sell us the non original or equivalent parts that are not right,and won't work as they don't have locking tabs on them. I (we) will have to right and get all our money back!!! Not a happy bunny :( .

Regards Dave

Does it have a Landrover part number on it? A few years ago I bought some in original Landrover packaging with the correct part number but were of the round knob design. Does the fact the design may have been superseeded make it right or wrong?

Hi Pete.
I think you are right in that the original part 399058 has been super ceded by RTC 6448 in the same way the original round choke cables were replaced with rounded rectangular ones.
Regards
Dave

I guess this is where restoration becomes tricky & down to what you are actually trying to achieve. I would say the "in service" look is the easiest as in any cable would do as long as it worked. :lol: Incidentally I fitted my round knob cable in 2007 & it has worked fine ever since. Not that I can recall ever having pushed it in other than by accident as never really needed to cut the air flow off. It will be interesting to see if anyone has any info on the history of 101 heater control cables & when/if they changed their design. The one the club supplies has been supplied since at least 2007 & not seen any complaints about it till now.

If its not what you want then I am sure they will take it back.

Mine is definitely 'pull up for air' - I suppose if the air inlet flap were turned round in the duct the operation could be reversed?
