    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default Heater constantly hot. Help?

    Anybody had this before or any idea what it could be? All worked fine when went out first thing.

    Then went out again a dinner left friend in car and god nose what he has done. But since then car is stuck on hot.

    As in all the heater controls work. All fan setting direction setting etc.
    Air con kicks in when turned on. But obvisouly doesn't blow cold because heaters seem to be stuck on maximum hot.

    It's stupidly hot and cant get it off. As an idea how hot it is my iPhone went man down saying temperature and a warning wen a was using the sat nav

    Everything else works fine temp on car is ok.
    Please help with ideas as I'm not looking forward to 260 mile drive home if a can't fix it before Friday

    Well done bud, not heard of the flap sticking before. Had something broke?

    Tbh I'm not sure yet. As was pitch black an was doing it with the light off my phone so will try get a good look tomorrow.

    Am guessing just the electric part has seized up. As when a popped the plastic arm off I could move the flap an change from hot to cold and back again.

    So I've just left it like that for now. So if a cant find the actual fault and if needs be my mate can adjust the heat on way home lol

    Am hoping to get it off an just clean it an refit. Fingers xd
