    Could it be your heater matrix? I had the opposite problem to you I could get heat but the car wouldn't blow and circulate the air around the car, puzzled me for a day or so turned out it was the motor had seized.

    No dude I just took it off and greased it up, I believe that the heater matrix is fairly expensive.

    It is behind the dash where the glovebox is. from what I remember there are about 7 screws and they are something like 7-8-9mm and then that will reveal your motor when it is taken out. Then you just need to turn the bottom of that anti clockwise and the resistor and motor both come out together there is some stuff that needs unplugging but that's not hard.
