I appear to have a bit of a wierd one.

Aircon on
Fan setting one
Air direction footwell


1st i10 : Penguins would have been happy

2nd i10 : Cold air, but nothing to tell the penguins about


What temprature should I expect the air to be coming out of the lower footwell


2nd question

Imagine your heater temp control has a range from 7 o'clock through to 5 o'clock

1st i10 : Warm air started at around 11 'oclock

2nd i10 : Warm air starts at 7:30 !!!!!



What's your i10 do in both the above ?

My heater temperature range is more like 8 oclock to 4 oclock


Temperatures taken with ambient outside air temperature - 10 degrees

Aircon on, no recirculation, fan 1, thermometer immediately next to footwell air vent - 6 degrees

Air con off, heater at 8 oclock (off) 15 degrees
Air con off, heater at 9 oclock - 17 degrees
Aircon off, heater at 10 oclock - 19 degrees
Aircon off, heater at 12 oclock - 39 degrees
Aircon off, heater at 4 oclock (flat out) 56 degrees

Noddy, so it's as though ......... if you could take the temp knob off, turn the control spindle up/clockwise a bit, replace knob! Meaning the temp knob would effectively be able to turn the temp down lower, if you see what I mean?
I don't know if this is something you can do yourself, or take it in.

Many thanks for that !. That will prove to be a good benchmark. It appears yours is not to far out from mine ( assuming that once you start turning the temp control clockwise, you're getting warm air straight away).

I've looked at this , but the range appears to operate within the constraits of the cables and heater unit. If you look up inside the dash from the drivers footwell, you can see the full range of the mechanism on the heater unit. Rotating the temp knob appears to give a full range from on to off. So unless there is something going on inside the heater unit ( which means removal of the complete dash ) I cant see anything. My first concern was that heat was still escaping with the temp control in the off position and mixing with the aircon. But after taking the temprature on idle (no recirculation, fan 1 & 4 ) it appears my aircon is around 8 degrees at the footwell with the outside temp at 18 degrees.
