      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  5. Right ive found a site that has step by step pics of how to remove HCV should be very helpful to you , well i hope so .. FK-OC ford ka owners club type it in n search for heater probs ok as a taster heres one of the pics DAVE
  6. had the same problem with my Ka only the exact opposite mine had stuck in the cold only position cost i believe is abt £20 ish , you will see 2 pipes to the rear of engine just below where windsceen meets engine bay theres also a electrical lead running to pipes to operate the valve which is what sticks in either the hot or cold position mine was on cold permenantly, a haynes manual shoud be able to guide you through replacing it , hope this is of some help ..

    Been to garage today and they were most apologetic , there guys coming out to the car in the morning and hes going to write me the error code down then clear the light on dash .. he stated if it comes back on after this he will take the car and replace any faulty componants under the warranty ! he even offered to extend the warranty to give me peace of mind untill it gets sorted ,cant say fairer than that can you. he said it might be the PREHEATER ????? causing the fault hmmm no idea personally.. Will post the outcome tomorrow and the error code ..catch you tomorrow evening people .. DAVE
