    Hi All, My 1989 R19 TSE has lost all its coolant due to a corroded core plug according to the repairer. They can source a replacement but the problem is the location of the plug which is on the bulkhead side of the engine (1.4L) and the manifold has to be removed to get at it. They are...

    I have removed the heater unit on my R19 convertible because I was so sure that was blocked. The heater was blowing only slightly lukewarm air, and a guy who's had the same car told me that the heater should be just as good on this as on any other car. I thought I couldn't access the system in...
  10. Heating & cooling
    I have tried flushing and using chemicals, but to no avail. So to get heat in the car I guess I have to change the heater core. But do I have to remove the dash on this model, or can I get it out without doing that? And do I have to take out parts of the engine as well? The hoses into the heater...
