205 TD No Heating

Post by maxfox44 » 21 Oct 2002, 21:57

A friend has just bought a G reg. 205TD. The heating doesn't work, and the local mechanic says the heater matrix has been disconnected.
Can anyone offer some advice. It might cost £200-500 to replace.
We don't know why is has been disconnected, but must assume its because of a leak.

Hope they didn't damage the pipework when they did this, get one stuck in, work at it methodicaly and make notes if necessary, wont be much fun without the ability to demist or even keep frost off the screen, not to mention keeping your toes warm<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Is this a Pro only job, or a DIY type thing. Also how do you get at it?

Most modern cars require the removel of the entire facia, get a Haynes and have a look at it, its a lot of work but its realy not that difficult.

I am fairly sure that on the 205 you do not have to remove the entire dashboard, it is worthwhile checking this out in the haynes manual.
I have done a similar job on a 309 which only required the lower drivers side to be removed.
Good luck
