Dave

  5. Right ive found a site that has step by step pics of how to remove HCV should be very helpful to you , well i hope so .. FK-OC ford ka owners club type it in n search for heater probs ok as a taster heres one of the pics DAVE
  6. had the same problem with my Ka only the exact opposite mine had stuck in the cold only position cost i believe is abt £20 ish , you will see 2 pipes to the rear of engine just below where windsceen meets engine bay theres also a electrical lead running to pipes to operate the valve which is what sticks in either the hot or cold position mine was on cold permenantly, a haynes manual shoud be able to guide you through replacing it , hope this is of some help .. DAVE

  12. well guy came out and cleared eml and so far its not come back on so fingers crossed eh oh yeah error code was 0030 So all in all i cant praise HIGHWAY MOTORS in claycross derbyshire enough there aftersales service is a bench mark that other second hand car sales would do well to emulate... DAVE Damn lights come back on and according to error code it must be the top lambda thats got a faulty heater circuit so garage is replacing it for me this week foc of course
  13. Been to garage today and they were most apologetic , there guys coming out to the car in the morning and hes going to write me the error code down then clear the light on dash .. he stated if it comes back on after this he will take the car and replace any faulty componants under the warranty ! he even offered to extend the warranty to give me peace of mind untill it gets sorted ,cant say fairer than that can you. he said it might be the PREHEATER ????? causing the fault hmmm no idea personally.. Will post the outcome tomorrow and the error code ..catch you tomorrow evening people .. DAVE
