Thumbs up Hello and thanks!!!!

Hi there,

I just wanted to say hello and a big thank you to everyone on Benzworld.org!!!!

I don't have a Merc myself but was searching for some for some help to resolve an issue with no heat blowing through the vents on my fathers 2003 E320 CDI.

Anyway I found a thread which pointed me in the direction of the heater control valve as being the most likely suspect.... so purchased one direct from Mercedes for £29 which I thought was a bit of a bargain!!! and had the mechanic who works on my VW fit it this morning. Heat now restored although I'm hoping for a good summer but you never know in the UK (it's still cold now and it's the middle of May). It only took him an hour and charged me £30 so me and my father are well pleased. Not sure what a franchise garage would have charged but I could imagine it being hundreds of £'s.

I also wanted to point out that for anyone changing the heater control valve on a right hand drive car that the job is allot harder than on a left hooker as the valve is located under the brake reservoir. Very fiddly to get the part in and out but my mechanic managed it, GOD BLESS HIM!!!!!!

Anyway a big thanks to the forum I'll certainly be logging on again if I need help in the future.... fingers crossed that I won't need to though.

Keep up the good work!!!
