Hi all

New here and new to the RCZ, generally happy with mine
Just noticed over the last week or so the heater doesn't pump out hot air, luke warm more like, even at high settings

Any ideas ?

Thanks

It's not a heater as such. The digital numbers denote the 'Comfort Setting' rather than any particular temperature. It automatically switches between heat and air-con to reach your desired setting as soon as possible.

Bang them both on 22, drive around for a bit and you should be nice and toasty after 10 - 15 mins. :thumbup:

Welcome by the way. Feel free to share some pictures of your new motor.

You could always try turning on re-circulation, so no cold air is coming in from outside, turn off auto & air con, bang both dials to full & stick the fan up a bit.

That should show if there is an issue with the heater, cos you should be down to socks & pants after @ 15 minutes drive :crazy:

I have the opposite problem.

My aircon is warm. Very odd.

Aircon re-gas required maybe?

They do recommend every two years or so apparently, but mine seems very chilly at the ripe old age of 3.
My last motor - Renault Megane CC had @ 4 re-gasses while I had it, but it did have compressor issues :eusa-think:

Had my lukewarm aircon regassed today, and now back to ice cold again.

Was a bit worried it was something more serious, but simply out of gas.

£39 well spent.
