heating problem ok

my seicento had a problem with the heating, the steel cable that moved by the wheel was bent and did not fit into the sheath.
I have disassembled cover (3 screws) and then I have reached another small screw that holds the cable sleeve.
thus I have the stretched cable giving heat to return to give the straight form. A lot of oil and it seems to come back in its place







I have put a cable on the other side of the wheel, it seems to be more direct and it will be harder to bend again.
picture both arrows to see site difference

Thanks htchd7 thanked for this post

Re: heating problem ok

tested on the road and I already have heating, I think the way to prevent breakdowns is good lubrication of the cable.

Re: heating problem ok

The problem could be on the other side of the cable. you have to look for a scheme and see where it is.

Re: heating problem ok

I will see. It could be cable or heater valve.

Re: heating problem ok

Mine now seems to always get hot air, so the problem is cable. Before I did not do it and when fixing it, it happens to me

Re: heating problem ok

After fixing the cable, now you have heating all the time, like me? Might be the other side of the cable under the hood. :/
I tought that heater valve is blocked-seezed on mine. But it is strange that now you have the same symptoms.

Exactly, now in cold position, temperate air. I think that before the cable was damaged, it was already happening (two or three years ago) I suppose if I stretched the cable by hand, it would be cold as before.

Re: heating problem ok

I hope that you put some oil inside cable tube, to lubricate. I will try to do the same. I am going on weekend roadtrip.

Re: heating problem ok

Yes, I put silicone in spray. It is not a car for daily use, so it is not much inconvenience either.
good trip
