Heater Core Replacement - '69 Cougar

In this episode, we tackle one of the most dreaded jobs for classic car owners: replacing the heater core. On a classic Cougar or Mustang with air conditioning, it's a very involved process. In this case, we use a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ convertible as a guinea pig. Don walks through how to remove the dash pad and lower dash panel, and how to remove and service the heater box plenum and blower motor assembly. Along the way, he offers several tips on other jobs you should consider tackling while you're in the process. This is a job that we actually recommend you attempt yourself, rather than taking your car to a shop. Not only will you save money, but you will probably be a lot more careful than the average mechanic, and will avoid breaking expensive / irreplaceable parts. The fiberglass heater box itself is very fragile and valuable, and most of the plastic clips for the wiring harness are not reproduced. Most of the parts mentioned in this video can be found in the A/C and Heat sections on our website: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/airco.html

Turn Signal Cancelling Cam Replacement
If your turn signals don't turn off after you go around a corner and straighten the steering wheel, this cancelling cam is your culprit. Instead of replacing the whole turn signal switch, you can save yourself some money by just replacing the cam. This video hows how to replace the turn signal cancelling cam on a 1969 Mercury Cougar with a tilt / tilt-away steering column. However, this information applies to a wide range of vehicles from the late 1960's through the mid-1980's, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth. The switch we used in this video, plus other related parts we mentioned, can be found here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/tusisw.html





Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.





Door Panel Backer Boards - How To Replace (1967-1970 Cougar)
Since door panels aren't reproduced for Cougars, good used originals are valuable. Sometimes, the front vinyl side is usable, but the backer boards are toast. Luckily, there's a solution. We now carry brand new, better-than-stock backer boards made from a more durable pressboard material. We have a version for 1967-1968 Cougars, as well as another version for 1969-1970 Cougars. See links below. In this video, we show you how to separate a vinyl door panel from its old backer board, repair the metal hanger piece, and reattach it and the vinyl to the new backer board. We also cover removal & replacement of the inner beltline strip (the felt-lined trim that touches the door glass).

Door Hinge Rebuild - 1969 Cougar
In this video, we show how to rebuild your classic's door hinges with new pins and bushings, with useful tips and tricks throughout the process. In this case, we decided to do it with the door and fender still on the car. Normally, it's a better idea to remove the door, leave the hinges on the car, and rebuild them in place... but Don's car has power windows, so removing the door is much more difficult with the wiring. Check out our door hinge parts at http://cougparts.com

Rear View Mirror Lens Replacement - Classic Cougar, Mustang, etc
After 40+ years, the rear view mirror on your classic Cougar or Mustang is probably looking pretty tired. The silver gets tarnished, and the only way to bring it back to life is to either buy a new repro mirror, or to remove your original mirror lens, have it re-silvered, and install it back into the original holder. Luckily, we're offering an exchange-based mirror restoration service at West Coast Classic Cougar. You can send us your old lens, and get a restored one back for around $50. Keep in mind that any imperfections on the glass surface will remain, because the silver is applied to the back side of the lens. If you'd rather not go through the process of removing and re-installing your lens, or if yours is missing, broken, or in bad shape, we also sell a Grade "A" original mirror assembly with a re-silvered lens already installed. We have all styles of mirrors from 1967-1973 for the Mercury Cougar, most of which are interchangeable with other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. Check out the interior mirror section on our website for more info: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/usedparts.html While you're at it, check us out on Facebook too! http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar Last but not least, be sure to subscribe to our channel for more classic Cougar videos.
