I had the same problem. There is a faulty valve that takes a few mins to replace. My job was done under warranty

This is specific to the 2003 E500

Have the dealer look into this TSB:
Date: September 17, 2004

Order No.: P-B-83.20/72

Supersedes:

Group: 83

SUBJECT:
Model 211.026/065/070/076/082/083/265/270/282/283

No Warm Air in Heating Mode

Control valve lists for $36.00 and takes 1.4 hrs to install, test takes .4 hr.

07 E63 AMG ** 05 E500 ** G36 Beech Bonanza
The AMG slams the competition
The E500 keeps up with the best of them
The G36 is the fastest and hardest to parallel park!

Do you have a diagram or a picture of this valve? I need mine replaced and think I could do it myself.

Change over valve part # A2118320584 - #30 in diagram. The valve is located in the engine compartment, beneath the plastic trim below the windshield on driver’s side.

Hi konigstiger,

I'm trying to replace a valve myself. Is there any precaution I should be aware of before the installation? Thanks!

USE EXTREME CAUTION removing from the heater core so you don't crack a joint. Don't twist or pull excessively where it attaches to the core.

Good judgment comes from bad experience. Now want to know how to change a heater core in a Corvette.

Thanks for the help! Other than carefully removal, is there any thing I should be paying attention? Is the water going to leak out of the heater core or other place?
