Vauxhall Zafira Heater Control Noises - Spanner
I have a V plate Vauxhall Zafira 1.8 petrol with a non functioning heater.
I been told by Vauxhall that the hot water valve needs replacing after it started to make a clicking noise when the rotary heater control was turned.
Apart from lack of heat, the engine temperature gauge reaches normal and the engine has never overheated etc.

They said it's a 6 and a half hour 'dashboard out' job to change it.

Anyone out there know any different?

Sounds about right.

Make sure everyting works when you get it back. And I mean everything, including all the instrument lights.

Thanks for prompt reply. I would have a go myself but I don't think there's a Haynes manual for it.

Haynes manual 3758 Vauxhall/Opel Astra & Zafira covers it.

I didn't think there was a hot water valve, I thought it was an "air-blending" type of heater. There's no reference to it in Haynes.
