hello

a friend has asked me to look at her 06 plate ka , its constantly blowing hot even when selected to cold.

i know in most cases these can be solved with a simple dig out of the heater matrix.

my question is that i wonder if there are any common faults in these with ford as im not all to familiar with fords .

any help would be greatly appriciated by my self and my friend who has to drive around with her window down alot lol

a very common fault with most ka's is the heater control valve.

have a search on ebay, probably cost you £20-£30 for the part and 20 minutes to fit. if you are going to a garage to have this changed i would expect to pay about £50.

have a look at these 'genuine' ones

there is also a guy on the forum who does genuine ford parts for a good price.

Had the same problem myself with my ka last year. Replaced the hc valve and was fine. However two weeks ago it happened again. I did the same repaire and it didnt work. Turns out its also common for the temperature control dial on the cars heating controls to fail (blower still works though). Found a replacement cheap control panel at a scrap yard and replaced it myself (four screws in dash) works fine now.
