68/RT/440


« on: February 19, 2022, 02:34:07 PM »

This is the resistor from the heater box.   What is the best way to clean the rust?   Little wire wheel on a dremmel?  I could sand blast just the connector but then I am guessing I would need to put some protectant on it somehow.   Any way to test this thing?

Thank you.

Dip it into vinegar or lemon juice.

A failed heater-A/C resistor block would be really noticeable. Don't worry.

Don't forget to neutralize the vinegar after you dip the part, water will work.

With baking soda to neutralize even better

These are great products! We use them at work. I used them on my bulkhead connectors.
