Ben, I have never been happy with my heater, but have replaced a few parts in the process. The new thermostat possibly made the biggest difference, but my heater core was rotted to hell and needed replacing also.

ben, it's hard to say exactly because at the time I had a few jobs done at once: a new driver's window motor, the installation aerial, the heater tap, and a thermostat. The total was $220, so the heater tap alone might be $30 or so plus installation?

Same Problem

I have the same problem with my climate control , The fan still works so does the airconditioning but not the heater. just blows semi-warm air. Not sure if its the condenser or the piping is rusted. This is annoying as climate control can be expensive to replace. I used to be a Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration apprentice but im buggered if i know. Plus the front demistor doesnt work and the normal vents do and then it reverses and the dimistor works and the vents dont and the greogorys manual doesnt say shit about it.

Re: Mechanism

check your heater tap and plumbing to make sure coolant is trying to get into the heater... if theyre fine, you could have a blockage in the heater core itself.

second, take off your glove box. in the non ecc models, theres a lever you can see which should move when you adjust the temperature slider - its driven by a cable which could break or come unstuck.

check your manual (haynes, gregories), they should have a section on heating...
