Heater Box help

Postby Ricoboy » Thu Jul 22, 2010 12:40 pm

Hi guys,

Could any one help me with my heater !!!
Ive removed the engine bay plastic vents and fan. I know the plate needs to go across that area but does more come out of the hole? Or does it all come out from the behind the dash inside the car? How much comes out?
Before i break it !! could any one give me some tips.

RJ :D

The heater box with the matrix inside comes down inside the car from under the dash. Once you've taken out the fixing screws that fasten it to the bulkhead and the 2 water pipes from the matrix and the wires to the control levers it should come out ok. It may then be an idea to join the 2 pipes together that originally went to the heater matrix to an additional little cooler radiator of some sort to help with engine cooling.

Funny you should say that Steve,
When i came thro the blue mist i was having a little chuckle to myself about that very film. I think going high would have ment over the pit wall tho!! :D
Cole was right tho ...... you can see alot from espn or as we know it youtube Andy/Adam.
I know wot you thinking Nick, maybe i should stop thinking funny stuff in my head and think about racing faster. :lol:
