Part# 181 963 107
Picked this up about a month ago from a VW bus being parted out on The Samba. It is mechanically sound and will wind up and tick down, but it’s a bit stiff. I need to open it up and clean it.
These are commonly used with the Eberspacher BN4 and BA6 heater’s that were optional on many of the VW models. The timer simply allows you to set the heater to run for a certain amount of time. The amount of heat put out by the heater is still controlled by the thermostat. For the VW bus, the timer was placed on the dash in one of the accessory cutouts, such as where the rear defrost, hazard light, and headlight knobs went. If you don’t have on open spot to put the knob, there is a good chance there is an available one. Just take a peak under the dash at the backside of the other knobs and you’ll see where you can cut out another opening that has been pre-fabricated into the metal.
