Fiesta 98 1.25 Heater problem (again)

Hi all.

This is my first post but I though I'd try cos you all seem to know your stuff. I've read through all the posts regarding the fiesta heating issues but most seem to have a problem blowing hot air, whereas mine's stuck on hot. The temp dial moves but does not alter the temperature. Anybody any ideas on how to solve this? I've been told it's not a big problem but wouldn't mind being pointed in the right direction if anybody has any idead.

Cheers

Hi there,

I've got the same problem with my Fiesta - did you have any luck with yours? Have you got it sorted?

Cheers,
Nick.

Re: Fiesta 98 1.25 Heater problem (again)

i had a problem with not blowing hot air, just cold. but i presume its the same valve. i had a valve replaced just under the windscreen (accessible from the bonnet) and this did the trick. if its not that i would think that its another valve of some sort. fiestas have a rep for these valves going on them.

Re: Fiesta 98 1.25 Heater problem (again)

hey guys i've had major issues in the past with heating on the fiesta, it doesn't matter if the air is blowing hot or cold, alot of the time it's the heater control valve, and that usually sorts the prob, however when you attempt to replace this i suggest you get some self holding grips as it's a real pain taking off the hose rings... can save you a good 30 mins... if this doesn't fix it, then it's more than likely the heater control panel, or the thermostat, but my guess would be the heater control panel... which i picked up at a local breakers yard for 20 quid and the heater control valve you can get from a breaker for about £15, whereas ford will charge you like 50 for the valve and a whopping £150 for the panel, and that doesn't include labour of £65 per hour!.. hope this helps...
