Removal
1 Disconnect the battery earth lead.

2 The heater control unit is located in the centre of the dashboard. It is accessible after the radio has been removed or, on vehicles without a radio, the cubby hole.

3 Pull off the control knobs and unclip the trim panel (see illustrations).

5 The cables can now be unhooked from the control unit levers and their outer body unclipped from the control unit body.

6 If a cable is to be renewed, unhook it from the control flap at the other end and withdraw it. For access to the flap control valves, it is necessary to remove the lower parcel tray on the passenger side and also the insulation sheet (see illustrations).

7 It is best to renew the heater cables completely if the inner cable snaps. In this way the exact length required is obtained. It is a good idea to fit new cable clamps also, as the old ones seem to distort when removed.

Refitting
8 Refitting is a reversal of removal. Ensure that the cables are correctly routed with no sharp bends.
