Hello! I have been searching and searching this site and others trying to figure out how to rebuild a Thermador Car Cooler ( swamp cooler ). I have had some luck, but not much on certain things. I’m hoping some of you with experience can chime in and help me and others out. I have got it all torn down as described in another thread. 1. What is the best string to replace it with and what size and length do I need. 2. How do I run the string? (Any drawing/pictures would help! 3. I replaced the pad with Dura cool blue stuff - good or bad idea. I’m going to try to upload picture. There is a small gap where the pad doesn’t meet up. Is that fine? 4. How do I wind the spring? 5. What is the best stuff to seal it back up with. Aqua Seal tape, roofing tar, silicone...??? 6. It looks as if someone started to peel off the sticker so I ordered a new one and removed the old one (I felt bad doing that, but I plan to repaint it to match my truck). I noticed there are two little “nipples” in the area where it goes. I found pics online and the sticker was directly under both of them - almost like it’ll they were guides... one side of mine was under it and the other side was on it. Which is correct? 7. how is the front screen attached? 8. When I took it apart, there were 2 star washers and 2 washers that I’m not sure where they came from. Anybody have a diagram of how it’s assembled and what parts go where? I think if someone could come up with a diagram and show what goes where and how, it would be a huge help for many! I’m sure I’ll have more questions, but if you can help out in any way, I’d greatly appreciate it!!
