I have been lurking for nearly a year and read with interest a lot of posts relating to the title and my problem as detailed above, now I have decided to stick my head up and seek a fix.
OK I have a 52 plate 156 1.6 TS which has climate control, that blows ice cold air in the LO setting (both pax and driver's side) and once the heat is turned up, say to 17c it blows out HOT HOT HOT air. Its good for me, but Ms Pablissimette hates the cold and extreme heat, and therefore hates the car. I have suggested adding more layers or stripping off, but she is not too keen (especially to the latter
Whe I bought the car last year it had a damaged passenger mirror cover and missing lens. I replaced this from eBAY, but I am thinking now that the temp sensor in the housing may be damaged or not connected, is there any way to find out. Would this temperature sensor cause the failure of hot/cold mixing or am I barking up the wrong tree?
I also have a faulty thermostat I think in the engine, the car's temperature guage doesn;t show that it is heating up on a clear road, but it will soar in traffic to sometimes the point the red line ignites, a rev of the engine brings this down though. [Should I post this in a different post?]
This is a fantastic forum BTW, I used to have a BMW and used BMWLand a lot, and learnt a lot from that site. I hope to do the same here and try and contribute as much as possible
