Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Yes sorry for delay let me look up bleed procedure

Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Ok there are no bleed points on x type so let engine cool then start again . Turn heater in car on full heat full fan speed then run with cap off whilst topping up if nacessary . If car starts to overheat turn off allow to cool and start again

ill blowing cold. Mechanic looked at it today and said air is the problem
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Air is unlikely to be the problem after a*****. Was heater working before replacement parts?
