Heating AC


I am somewhat embarrassed to admit this, but when I removed the dash on my C3, I disconnected two hoses from the hot water shut off valve actuator on top of the heater box.
I am now faced with two hoses and three connections on the valve. I have not been able to track down the correct connections.
Any ideas guys?

Re: Heating AC


Sorry I don't have a C3 but looking on the web it seems the hot water shut off valve only has two pipes...Inlet n outlet...Couldn't find anything that looks like it has three conections...

Re: Heating AC


Thanks, but it is not the shut off valve itself, but the vacuum actuator that operates the valve that sits on top of the air box, and is operated by a cable from the AC controller. This actuator has three connections (about 3/16 inch dia) that control the valve.
