      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.

    Ford Fiesta Flight 2001 1299cc
  1. Hey guys. Bought a new HCV, fitted it. All sorted now. Heatings working lovely, car feels like a car again! Cheers both!
  2. Hey all. I have a Ford Fiesta Flight 2001 1299cc Five Door, Hatchback, Manual, Petrol. Just before Christmas the heating stopped blowing out cold air. I took it back to the garage and they advised me that they think its the heating control on the dash board (under the CD player). So I went down the scrappies and paid £20 for a new heater control panel. Took it home, fitted it myself, started the engine and I'm still just getting cold air coming out. After searching around on some forums I've been seeing a few people getting exactly the same problem and it being the Heating Control Valve, the fault. I'm not too convinced as when lifting the bonet and feeling the pipes after the control valve (the pipes that go into the dash) they are both hot, as if hot water is travelling through them... But, i'm not a mechanic, so I dont know for sure... Any ideas anyone? I'm pretty comfortable changing parts myself if its do-able. Thanks alot!
