    Hi everyone, whilst driving back from aberdeen yesterday the vents started chucking out steam and coupling this to the leak in my passenger footwell, i think the heater matrix might be faulty, any ideas or replacement tips?? anythings helpful!

    Cheers everyone :sadlike:

    Bugger, it's a dash out job to change too.

    I would bypass the thing with a bit of pipe for now until you can get to it. Before the water dmages other components

    er no it wont be sweaty, all you will be doing by bypassing it is stopping the heat coming into the car, the coolness is provided by a different heat exchanger
