    is anyone or has anyone had problems with the heating inside their car ?

    I have noticed recently that even when on high it blows out cold air. Was driving home from Macclesfield last night and i was actually cold in the car even though i had the temp on high and full blast all the way home !

    how far is all the way home? Being a diesel it does take a while to warm up (which is why the Scandihouligans get the aux heater)

    Also, are you leaving it on Auto? If you crank up the fans from start up it leaches heat away from the matrix earlier, so the warming effect is less.

    What is an aux heater?

    My diesel starts blowing warm air into the cabin within about 3 minutes, even though the engine temp needle hasn't even moved.

    it's a diesel driven auxilliary heater which is an option in colder climes.
