Renault Clio Heaters - Matt C

I have a 1994 Renault Clio RT and have been experiencing a few problems with the heaters. Whenever the heater is put to "hot" it will only blow luke warm air out of the vents - no matter how hot the engine is.

The pipes going into the heater are hot and I have flushed the system out and replaced the coolant, but to no avail. The only thing I can think of is that the flap is not opening properly or that the matrix is broken.

According to the Haynes manual to check that the flap is opening properly I will need to take the whole dashboard out! Has anyone done this - if so how long and how easy was it?

Any other suggestions welome!
