- 26 Nov 09:22Thanks Steve,
I will check with you the next time I need a part.
I put the Behr in yesterday and it works very nice indeed. Could be
a stronger fan, like the AC fan though. I still don't get the
seperate systems? Seems real repetitive to this yankey. The Dryer
in the AC would be very benificial for defrost and defog?
