In Topic: Help with heating, which I don't think is the HCV!

Ok I think I've narrowed it down to the heater matrix. I took it out yesterday and swilled through with hot water and put it back in and there is a tiny bit of heat now so there must be a blockage in it. I was going to take it back out and leave some coolant flush in it but the guy in the shop said it'd probably do nothing because it'd need to be hot and constantly flowing which obviously I can't do if the matrix is out. I don't think it'd be any good doing a whole system flush as the blockage is pinpointed to the matrix!
Is there anything out there that I could just put in the matrix that would help unblocking it?
It's strange cus when I put the hose on the matrix, water seemed to run freely out of the other pipe so I thought I'd ridded it of the blockage!

Have you had a heater control valve changed recently? There was a bad batch from ford which caused overheating?
