In Topic: Heating system airlock - how to cure

Heater knob link is broken so heaters on cold all the time.


Could be it also.

But given the serious lack of coolant + the frequent web references to "Rid yourself of airlock associated with low coolant levels, so as to get the heating working again", I'm inclined to plump for an airlock being the best first port of call.

I can cure one worry and make the other worse. Sounds to me like you havent got an air lock pal.......now the bad bit.....it sounds like your heater matrix has a small leak in it. Would explain both symptoms.


If the matrix had a small leak it would indeed explain the drip-drip loss of coolant. What it wouldn't explain is why the heating isn't working after replenishing the coolant.

Like I say, I'll worry about the source of the leak after I cure my immediate concern re: chilly driving conditions.
