Hey all. I have a Ford Fiesta Flight 2001 1299cc Five Door, Hatchback, Manual, Petrol. Just before Christmas the heating stopped blowing out cold air. I took it back to the garage and they advised me that they think its the heating control on the dash board (under the CD player). So I went down the scrappies and paid £20 for a new heater control panel. Took it home, fitted it myself, started the engine and I'm still just getting cold air coming out. After searching around on some forums I've been seeing a few people getting exactly the same problem and it being the Heating Control Valve, the fault. I'm not too convinced as when lifting the bonet and feeling the pipes after the control valve (the pipes that go into the dash) they are both hot, as if hot water is travelling through them... But, i'm not a mechanic, so I dont know for sure... Any ideas anyone? I'm pretty comfortable changing parts myself if its do-able. Thanks alot!
