blower motor switch-rebuild?

I have a 70 chevelle without A/C, did the SS guage swap. Everything went pretty well, other than a few questions I posted.

So I am plugging in my electrical wiring connector on the heater blower motor switch, on the back of the heater/temp control for the heater (which is all mounted and installed on the dash now). The blower switch fell apart, when I tried to plug in the new wiring harness? The ENTIRE back came off of it (PC Board?)

Since I have read that this switch controls a lot of current, I will ask this question. Can I just put this back together? Or should I replace it?

Re: blower motor switch-rebuild?

If you are sure that you didn't lose parts ( springs, etc ) when it opened, it shouldn't be hard to reassemble. Take the time to clean and regrease. But, I think the non A/C switches are available at reasonable cost. I'd go for a new one.

From what I've seen for my '69, non-A/C blower motor switches seem to run about $45, A/C blower motor switches seem to run about $90.

I would check with the dealer on those switches. I have bought several locally over the past decade and never paid more than $20 for the AC blower switch in my 71 (I do, however, have an account at my local Chevy dealer, so I get the wholesale price).
