Re: heater problems
there are two types of thermostat - one looks like a normal one, and the other has an extra little bit that hangs down, and opens and closes the heater inlet/outlet (i dunno which one it is, never checked) im not exactly sure when that little bit is supposed to be open or shut, but when a workshop fitted a new thermostat to my mums car (EF fairmont) they fitted the one with the extra bit, and her heater imiediately stopped working.
i didnt know that there was two types and it drive me mad trying to figure out why - eventually lukey039 and i removed the dash to check the air mix doors and stuff, they were all good, and then he wanted to check the thermostat - bingo. hacked the extra bit off with a hacksaw and put it back in - beautiful!
maybe check yours and remove the bit if it has one?
of course, thats after you get someone to move the hot/cold lever in the cabin while you watch the heater tap to see if it moves as it should...
