The switch is for the fan on & off when you move the heat control lever. The fan is off in the off and vent positions. The light socket is for the heater control lamp.

It's a 194 bulb. If you remove the plastic trim piece from around the heater control and radio, you'll see the 4 screws that hold the heater controls in. The controls will pull out enough to get to the bulb. The cables will keep it from coming out very far. You can remove the cable clamp above the gas pedal to get a little more slack. When you start to pull it out be careful of the 2 vacuum hoses on the left side of the controls. They operate the cowl air damper.

If that harness won't reach it could be for the rear defroster or wiper option. Do you have a better pic?

The black plug is for a light bulb, I think it's supposed to go into a holder on the back side of the dash, and is to light up the area where the rear wiper/defrost switches go.

The white switch thing is supposed to be mounted to the heater controls. it's a vacuum switch, and controls the driver side vent door that is located in the cowl vent. It closes the vent door when the heater is switched to the "off" position.

If I remember correctly, it mounts to the top of the heater controls, with two screws. it sits so that when the heat is switched off, the arm presses the little plunger on the switch.

I found a pic suing google image search, but I'm not sure if it will show up.


well, at least the pic showed up, sorry it's so small. Anyway, the pic is looking down on the top of the heater controls(with them removed from the dash). You can see the switch towards the top, on the left side. If I remember correctly, the screws come in from the bottom, and the nuts were on top of the little ears that are on the switch.
