Re: Dash switches

Well, I haven't had at it yet, other things have come along. Any ideas on the other switch?

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

It is different. Would make you wonder, if it was used as an ambulance, where did the rear seat come from?

There's a 48 Limo on ebay. Drivers side open like regular doors. The passenger side, the rear door opens suicide. I'm relatively new to Packards, but that seems odd.

Thanks. It's part of the dash so I'll have at it after work.

Dash switches
Home away from home

Mark Hill
Hello all. Would some one please tell me how to remove the switches from the dash of a 49 Deluxe. I have not been able to figure it out. I need to repair the fan switch as one of the terminals/shunts has come apart. My fan isn't even hooked up to it. There is a 2 position switch at the right side of the steering column, below the dash that says "Air". I push it down one click and I hear the fan motor but get very minimal air movement. Any info on that switch also would be greatly appreciated. I have been trying to find something in the manuals, but have not had success as of yet. Thanks in advance to all who post.

Found it. Thanks for that. There is lots of good information on this site. Being new to this car it has been most helpful as have been the members when I start asking questions. Thank you to all of you.

I see how it's laid out. But what might go in the spots for paint and trim. I'm sure the color is Arizona Beige. So would the letter "W" go in the paint spot? As far as trim would it indicate that it has a radio, fog lights, and any other accessories? My car is listed in the registry. Go by body style 2362 and it's the last one. Is there anyway to determine what the code might be. Say, someone with the same trim level/ accessories with a good vin tag would know what would go there? Also, maybe nothing is there, because I can see the trim spot pretty clearly, and there is nothing stamped there. Which raises another question. Would it be stamped or printed/ inked like the rest of the tag?

What would be the approximate size of this paper unfolded? I know I don't have the whole thing. The piece that I have is about 4 inches long and no more than an inch wide with ratty edges which makes me think it's incomplete. I can see L46 the next number could be either a 2 or a 7. Looks more like a 2. I can't make out the next few digits. At the other side I can see a 69 and two dots after. Bit of a bust, but I'll try to preserve what I have. What would be an example of what would go in the paint and trim spots and what would the stand for? Would I be correct in assuming that paint code would be the letter for the paint color and the trim would be something to indicate what accessories are on the car?

I looked above the glove box a while ago. Forgot about the filler neck. Just looked and I see what looks like a piece of folded paper stuck in the undercoating. Going now to dig it out.

Hello all. My 49 Deluxe vin tag is very faded. Other than patent numbers on the bottom, how does one determine what went in the Paint Scheme and Tim Code spots. My vin is 2362 14657. I believe the paint color is Arizona Beige. Thank you in advance to all that post replies.
