dealer claims they need to strip console

just because my heater is not working?
so it works by passing the air into hot water?
so the first thing that comes to mind is a low water level or is there some other problem

Re: dealer claims they need to strip console

If you can rule out low coolant (just look at the header tank) then the next thing to look at is the control that opens the valve, allowing hot water from your cooling system to enter the heater matrix. It's possible that the heater control has become faulty or disconnected?

The service CD suggest the following:

1) Check the efficiency of the supply and return pipes from the heater; with the engine hot the pipes should be hot
2) Check the mixer control cable is correctly fitted (this would require access behind the dash if a replacement is required)
3) Check the seal of the heater radiator

Hope this helps
