If your floor in the front is wet, check the drains between the firewalls. This is going into General Maintenance as well so it will be cross posted.

I enjoy this gentleman's video's. He does a great explanation of what he is doing.

Defrost stuck on. Removal of glove box lining. Removal of vacuum actuator and replacement.

Includes a dismantling of the actuator to see torn diaphragm

I am double posting this between interior and electrical repairs.

His instrument cluster: gas, oil, temp cluster was not working so he cleaned the contacts.

Very well explained troubleshooting for your heater flaps in the footwells not opening up. Also includes an explanation for removal of the radio, climate control panel.

Removal of the heater blower. This will be a double post into the General Maintenance thread since given the age of our w126's, lubrication is probably needed to get rid of the squeaking when the fan comes on.

Rebuilding the vacuum pods that are part of the heating/cooling system. Not sure if I can post a direct link to the company that sells the replacement diaphragms given that they are a vendor but the poster of this video mentions he received them from Performance Analysis in Tennessee.

Windows not working? This video includes a nice troubleshooting guide, removal of window regulator and cleaning of the motor. Once the poster cleaned the electric motor, his problem was solved. Also includes greasing of the tracks.
