heater matrix

Hi chaps well only if it was a booked drain.....

No heater radiator it is.

To fix the complete dash has to come out to fit a new heater. Lucky a tin of wynns plugged the leak temporarily. Looking forward to a 1000-1500 bill now as it is a two man two day job!!!

Thanks anyway

Jay

Smile Heater Radiator

Hey there is some looking after me..... Warranty direct finally said yes.. cost of the repair was 740 but had to wait 3 days for new rad to be shipped from Germany though.

Sigh of relief

And a warm car again
