    Shouldn't need to bleed it as it's a self bleeding system. The expansion tank is above the engine for a reason - that's where any air in the system will end up.

    What might be wrong is one of the servos on the heater has stuck. You'll need to remove the glovebox to check.

    As you say, that is the correct proceedure. Forgot to mention about removing the cap.

    As any air ends up at the highest level of the cooling system (ie, the header tank) it can just vent out the tank.
