hi i have a 2.2 hdi serise 1 c5 with climate control wich is most unusual in that the drivers side will blow out what ever temp you set it for but the passangers side only blows hot air all the time no matter what temp you put it at this also happens when the air cons on anyone have any ideas :D

As are a lot of things, this is fairly common on C5s. I think its something to do with the cogs that operate the flaps inside the dash. They were out and need to be replaced. Im sure there is a kit available to fix this, however im not 100% sure as ive not needed it myself (amasing, no doubt that will be the next fault!) and i also think its reasonably easy to fit too.

If you try pressing the fan direction button and wait for it to change the direction, from windscreen to face etc, a few times then this sometimes brings the passenger side back to normal for a short while.
