    How to check Coolant Temp on Air Con Display?

    Cheers Andy. Your description confirms my thought that the thermostat is stuck open. Looking in the service history the car only had a thermostat about 12 months ago. Is it worth getting a genuine thermostat from the dealer? Also how difficult a job is the thermostat to change?
