    Default 306 Heater problems

    I have work colleague who has a 5 year old 306. Apparently
    last winter the heater ceased to work(she thinks it is because of a flap that she previously could hear closing, which she doesn't hear now)

    Can anyone throw any light on this, and if it is a dash out fix?

    Given the documented heater core problems would she be better to do that as well if it is a dash out job?

    Are there any alternative suppliers for the core?

    Who can you suggest in Melb or Geelong to take it to?

    Any help graetly appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Peter

    My dad's 405 mi16 had a similar problem, but we could only track it down to the small electronic unit which controlled the hot/cold flaps.

    His fix was to put in a control which moves the flap manually, thus you can regulate the temperature yourself. The motor was of course disconnected from the flap.

    The aircon still works fine too, which was surprising.

    As stated above its a servo which pulls and pushes certain flaps open and closed. It has a plastic clip that can break easy.
    Its not an easy repair, as the labour hours can make it expensive, but once you have access to the box its relatively straight forward.... - Chris

    does it stay on one temp? if it does a good chance like youse have said its probly the mixer motor. it sits at the bottom of the heater box on the pasenger side. if u look at the foot vent there itl be just too the left of it ( ul need to move the centre console back too see/access it.) the motor doesnt poop itself,its actualy a plastic thingy that it moves wears out. you can only buy it with the motor but from memory aprox $100 -/+. at worst it the control module (the bit with control knobs) $700 -/+. ul notice this by the plug in the back of it melted. both comn but dnt try this at home. fidly and frustratn if u havnt done it before.
