It'll either be the heater matrix blocked internally or the heater itself
not moving the inbound air over the heater matrix.
Is your heater thermostatically controlled - is it red->blue or does it
have numbers on it? If the latter, then that's a likely cause - the flap
that mixes hot and cold air is computer controlled and the brushes in the
motor wear, if it's anything like the ones in XMs. Get the fault codes read
out of the computer.
If it's the heater matrix, then try getting the cooling system cleaned out
and flushed through to shift the grot. If that doesn't work, then get shot
of the car. It's the bit they hang off the factory ceiling and build the
rest of the car around. It is a *nightmare* job on a Xant...
5 hours to do a matrix at my local specialist, /not/ a nightmare for
someone who does 'sometimes a couple a week' but it /is/ £175
labour /plus/ parts so not terminal to the car and, besides, who
would buy a car with no working heater ? and are you really
suggesting that someone offloads a defective car onto an
unsuspecting purchaser. is that incitement to commit deception ?
apparently. that's what he said to me when I asked what the book time
was 'about five hours' he may have been overestimating his timeskills
but it must get /lot/ easier when you've done a few dozen of them.
the car may be otherwise perfect. getting shot is always the last resort.
besides, why would a grand poohbaah of the citroen owners club NOT
direct someone with a blocked matrix into the citroen independent
specialist network ? is it because he hasn't paid you lot a fee ?
i dont remember hot air since where is the thermostatic climate system and
the slider moves freely left to right but no difference to any heat
thanks so much for your kind help - i cant offer to help with car problems
but any pc problems let me know.
