possibly the heater valve is faulty or the actual vents themselves do they blow according to the settings ie floor etc and can you feel the heater go from hot to cool when you turn the dial or does it stay the same if its the same then likely the wiring behind the dash or the heater control valve if its changing as you turn the dial then i can only suggest popping into a trusted garage or a ford garage and have it looked at

well the heater direction control doesnt seem to have much effect ie if i set it to blow on the main front vents it will still blow bloody hot air at my legs and it will still blow warm air from the face (front vents) and yes the temp of the air does seem to change when it feels like it without me changing anything on the controls sorry forgot to add the temp will change when i turn it up to hot but when i turn it to cool it will cool down but its still to warm thanks for any help

i will try quick fit a friend took his there and they somehow sorted a fault without knowing it and didnt charge him lol result, p.s i think the heater control valve might be located under the scuttle panel under the wipers (might be wrong ) but i found a couple of bits that say its there
