cabin temp sensor NOT FIXED

Post by dadooo » Fri Jan 08, 2016 11:43 am

Hey Pugsters !
The wife's 2000 406 estate 16v was not blowing that much hot air out of the vents .I bled it .. no avail... thinking sensor somewhere .Asked my friend google and found this http://rodiumplatedpipe.blogspot.se/200 ... -unit.html . thought worth a try ... I didn't tear it down as far as he did and I just blew some compressed air through it.
TAADA it works! warm and cozy again!
just thought I would share
EDIT: Did not fix the heat :| . car was in a warm garage and after being out in the cold it just doesn't get warm :frown:. thinking the flap to the warm air isn't moving .... time to play contortionist and stick my head under the dash....

Yep, they're good for collecting cabin fluff :roll:

I always like it when foljs have a go at these stuff, if it's already kippered you're hardly likely to make it worse.

Btw a new one of these is, erm, almost 50 quid :shock:
