    Heaters work fine.
    Coolant fan doesn't even get the chance to kick in before it eats it's coolant.
    All hoses/clips on front and side of engine are fine unsure if there are any behind at this point.
    Thermostat has been changed and still no joy at this point

    OK..Are you topping up the coolant?...Id be inclined to drain the systen down and measure what you have in...then start again with clean fluids.

    Is the drain point on the radiator ok?..
