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 !Removed! 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

sounds very much like the heater control valve quite common on the fiestas and kas not so sure about the focus but definately the same symptoms 175 quid or less i believe to get the part and fitting from ford best call and ask

take it to kwik fit maybe it needs regassed if its not low they dont charge for it worth a try when it comes to airccon i always advise a mobile specialist so many sensors etc on them they can test them try yellow pages some do a free callout

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
