Get one from www.buypartsby.co.uk as the heater matrixs are better made than the original fiat ones

edit - i forgot you are in france, if you want a matrix from buypartsby, ring them up first, as they should be able to post out to froggyland

50 is about right, if you buy over here the postage costs will make it expensive.

They come complete with the foam insuation band and heater valve/tap. i thinkFiat did improve their later heater matrixes - I'll check Gina's next time i see her . . !

50 for a heater matrix? Surely you could buy an MOT failure complete Panda for that and get loads of other bits into the bargain! Is the heater matrix a common failure on the Panda? It might even be the same as a Uno matrix?

The heater matrix is THE classic common failure on the Panda - you have to get a new upgraded one . . . . I think it's a pain to change as wel - you don't want to have to do it twice!!!!

I think it's pretty easy Graham ( https://www.fiatforum.com/panda-clas...ghlight=Matrix ) but your right no point in doing it twice

I have two spare Uno matrixes but never needed them in 60K of Uno driving over 6 years Regular changing of the coolant works wonders!
