Otherwise yes, if someone could find a pod from a different chassis that uses the same diaphragm, you could buy one of those pods and swipe the diaphragm from it.

I believe another option is to buy one of the dual-diaphragm pods for the 124 (defrost or main air flap) and take the front diaphragm out to fix the center vent pod, but those are pretty spendy to part out ($40-$50 each).




BTW, thank you for keeping your site up after all these years!



On the diaphragms... I have used Perf Anal's unit to repair a bad defrost lower chamber (well, whatever is closer to the rod), the center vents on the W126, and many E23 BMW units.

That small W124 one actually fits the rear air vent unit in the E23. Saved me about $50 versus the BMW unit.

Seems to me that the 2010 kits are available now, based on my emails with George Murphy. How many diaphragms do I need in total, for a W124 (wanting to replace everything except the more oval shaped pod)?

The 2010 kit will fully repair the center vent pod, and will repair the outer portion of the 2 main air flap (recirculation) pods, and defrost pod. So, you need 4 total. The 2010 does not fit the footwell pods or the diverter.

What is current pricing on the 2010 kit, btw? Nice to hear they are available again.

$7.50 each plus $8.95 shipping.

I made a separate thread but maybe this is the better thread for it, are the bodies of the 3 dual stage units the same? As in, could I just order three of the cheapest dual stage pod and change out the arms with what's on the car now? I'd sorta rather have everything new in there than leaving the big lift sections to chance (plus if I remember correctly, the big lift section on one of the units was testing as bad). It would seem that the vacuum pod itself is the same since he recommends the same kit for each of them. They sorta look the same in the pictures but I want to have these ordered before I pull out the dash.
