So just been to the stealers and picked up myself a oem stat seeing as mines well and truly dead.
I want to check to make sure its working before i fit it, we all know their not exactly the easisest of jobs, especialy in the col .
Anyway, are they shut when cold? Ive placed it in a cup of boiling water to see if it opened/closed but nothing happened! Do i need to depress the end pin sticking out of one side? I left the stat in the cup for 2/3 mins, was this long enough?
Cheers boys and girls .
