Thanks for that
No I haven't removed the radio but I will do that probably wednesday as the cars in use until then.
I will get back to you
Hi I managed to get the car yesterday and removed the radio and located the four sensors. I measured the resistance of them and they were all around the same so I swapped the lefthand pair with the righthand pair but it has not made any difference. The leftmost vent blows cold the lefthand of the center pair slightly warmer but the drivers side both blow the outside air temperature ( I have a digital thermometer) Running the self test does not show any faults.
according to my haines manual that would involve removing the facia which looks too big a job. Unless there is a easier way you know of.Doesn't the self test, test those ? there is a lot of whirring when I run it!
Could it be the controller?
I have tried pulling the panel under the dashboard on the drivers side but it appeares to be part of the dashboard moulding there is a groove on the panel where it joins the dashboard down the side of the central unit but I cant get anything to go through the groove. the similar panel on the passenger side continues across under the glove box and up to the dashboard in one continuos moulding
looks like I'll have to give in and take it into a Ford dealer
Obviously I was hoping to save some money in contacting you so it may be a week or two before do that. I just hope the weather doesn't get any hotter in the meantime
Sorry what was the question that you want an answer to. I thought I had replied to all you questions
I have booked the car into a local ford specialist for next wednesday.
I went to a breakers this morning to see how to get at the motors but although it was a mk4 mondeo it was totally different so at that point I decided to give up and take it in
unfortunately that doesn't help me. Are there any of your colleagues you can ask how to get at the motors other than by taking out the whole dashboardwhich looks like a major job. According to the haines manual you have to take out the clutch pedal, steering wheel and doors off which seems over the top just to get at the motors.
