Heater woes.

Hi all,

Can anyone help desipher what is wrong with my 500E's heater.

The heater only ever blows hot (not warm) air into the cabin until the temp selector is set to minimum and then we can get aircon cold air.

The other symptom is while the engine turns over at less than 1500rpm or while idling at lights, the warm air stops after a few seconds and then cool air until i get moving or rev the engine, then warm air arrives again.

This is a pain at this time of year so I'd be grateful to anyone who wishes to share their knowledge with me.

Many thanks

A 92 500 E 124? That’s how they all work from this era – my 91 300 SE works the same.
