    Have you tried flushing the matrix through both ways? Quite often a reverse flush will clear any crap in it if it's blocked.

    When it's running have you felt both pipes, are they both cool, one hot, one cool, both hot or what?

    Both hot, all flap motors work as should. Have compared with other car and bright light through air block to inspect flap functioning...

    Def think the matrix is maybe 80% blocked... Will try again flush it through and put summat in hopefully loose up the junk in there!
