heater box

Post by Lab_Rat835 on Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:40 am

hi peeps,
I have noticed on doris that there is no heat at the feet (no cold air either just no air movment), after a quick check all cables seem to be attached and doing there respective jobs so i am thinking it is flap stuck or broken, i know am gonna have to take the heater box out to strip it and inspect but dont have time to waste messing about, im really after a bit of experience on rough time for removal and install, any quick ways of getting at bits any thoughts at all really
cheers in advance

Short answer is the dash has to come out so a good couple of hours I would think depending on how much has to be disconected and how much could be pulled out.

I think I have a similar issue. My heating works fine when blowing through onto the windscreen, but as soon as I put it onto the vents, it just blows out cold air?

Any ideas?

I have no owners manual ....lol.

That would be why it does that then I suppose, so the only heat comes up to the windscreen I presume then, no other setting?

No, heat should go down to feet as well.

To get the whole heater box out, you need to take the radiator out as well to get to the water pipes behind the radiator Neutral Neutral Neutral Neutral pale

Don't forget long com's on as well.

Can't do without them through the winter once I have started wearing them. Keep me lovely and warm up on roofs and in my fridge of a workshop.
