I assume if you are going to start to repair this system doing the lot has some advantages.

There is a diagnostic flow chart for the HVAC part in the workshop manual.

Hi Bill, 'manhandling' is invariably the cause of the plastic tubing braking, particularly under the bonnet. I guess it is handy to know that the 116 library has details of the system, but I must admit to not having looked at their library for years now. Regards Styria
