Hi all, I replaced my heater tap, getting hot coolant on hoses both sides of the tap meaning it's engaging, but now the vents are only getting slightly warm. Before this the heater worked perfectly and I replaced the tap because it was leaking coolant.
Any ideas of what it could be anyone?

Why would the motor die after changing a tap? And the vacuum hose is connected as the tap is opening and closing it's just a little stretched

Did a cc diagnostic with no errors.. I think i've put in a series 2/3 control which I pulled out of a series 1 fairmont, will get another series 1 control and see if it rectifies the problem.

yeah, the lcd in the middle with all the buttons is one big unit called the climate control, clip out the plastic surround from the clock and one screws brings it out.
