And which heater are u referring to, under the rear seat or front
As i understand there is no control tap, if in dash it is a set or
three or four wires with s shaped ends on them. Wont get into it too
far incase problem solved.

flat head/phillips head screwdriver, long nose pliers/normal pliers,
maybe a 10 or 8 mm open ended spanner, some rp7 or equivalent....
Set aside a couple of hrs as it is tedious and fiddly work....
U should be looking in the actual air flow control unit/demister.
Inside the cab where u push the little tabs across to get the air flow
u want. i hope u know where i mean?
U will need to remove the little rubber slide across knobs these can
be a pain in the ass so caution, usually pulling straight out works
some force is needed if they are on there from original. Be careful so
as to not tear them as replacement is difficult. U may be able to hold
the actual metal stem at rear of plastic/rubber knob, hopefully u r a
hands on kind of person..
Blutac is helpful in worse case scenario.
Remove the face plate of demister unit there are 3/4 plastic lugs
which are located in the corner of face plate be careful as u dont
want to break these, breaking one from three is the usual effort.
Use a flat head screwdriver and do what u do in each corner.
Next remove ash tray if possible as this will give better access in
all directions, also if need be r4emove floor air vent behind
gearstick, all makes things easier in long term.
Eyeball the little wires push/pull wires on control plate, there
should be what looks like a "S" shape on each of the wires so as to
activate the push/pull, on/off action. Take note of where they all run
and check movement using knobs. if movement is extremely hard some
spray is needed.
At this point the wire which controls heat is the center one if u only
have a Transporter(?), otherwise the 2 top wires control all hot air
flow if i remember correctly (Caravelle/Transporter).
If this wire/s is/are kinked this is your problem wire remember there
needs to be a square s or z shaped kink there to make movement
possible, hopefully u should know what i mean when u r looking at it?
Remove the offending wire from saddle and straighten to what is the
proper alignment. Before replacing offending wire/wires into saddle
use lubricative spray down the shoot of each wire and slide in and
out, plenty of spray and long nose pliers are used to achieve good
shoot lubrication. U will know what i mean at this stage, again do all
needed to achieve decent free movement and use caution so as to not
kink any of the wires otherwise u will be at stage one again.
Do all of the wires whilst there because it is something u dont want
to do time and time again.
Now the easy part after all is fixed and good lubrication is acheived
put it all back together.
Any other queries on the day give me a ring and i will assist in what
I am not sure of the rules so check database for phone numbers.
