Newbie Needs Advice

Not sure if I'm supposed to be posting this here but I have a little problem
I have a 2009 focus zetec and for some reason my heating does not heat up it constantly blows cold, i am not mechanically minded at all so any help needs to be put simple haha
I was originally told it would be my thermostat but after asking a mechanic he told me that it wouldn't be as its "too new"
I don't want to take it to a garage until i seek some advice and get ripped off
Any advice would be appreciated

It does sound so far like a possible heater matrix issue, what have you done to test the issue? Everything from restarting the car to knob and switch arrangements will help.

Your looking for change in temperatures and where it occurs. Also listening to the noise the heater makes, I. E does the noise pit h rise..

Speak with Ford, its possibly only just out of warranty and a good will gesture from them may result in a free resolution...

I guess you could find inlet and out hose's , start the car , they should remain cool until the car reaches temperature , if the they start to warm gradually then thermostat could be stuck open.

Apologies, first of all meant to say focus section secondly seems my phone double posted, so any mods if you could remove a dupe post it would be appreciated.

so you should find the pipes heat up gradually as the engine does. you could also check both hoses are getting warm though, only one getting warm could indicate an air lock.
I would check the temperature knob is actually moving the flap that controls the air flowing through the matrix

These diagrams concern the MK2 but should have no particular differences from the MK2.5 layout-
