We have had un unfortunate incident involving our cat and our Matrix Cup! To cut a long story short - the cat has pee'd in it and we need to remove the cover and wash it! We are not sure if we remove it, can we easily thread the harness back thorugh? It looks as though it could be tricky to completely remove - Should we go ahead and take the entire cover out or would we have problems getting it back on? Also, if we cannot get rid of the smell can we buy a new cover?
I have just bought one of these second hand so wanted to wash it all. No problems doing it at all. All clean & new ready to go. (put it on handwash in washing machine) It took me a while to work out how to get certain bits off but easy once you know how. Hope this helps x

Not sure of this model, but I'll do what I can.
Put simply, there is no hot water reaching your heater matrix.
This may be bacause -
A - It's blocked (sometimes caused by sediment or radweld products)
B - There's an airlock in the system.
C - the valve controlling flow is not working.
Check for rusty gunk in radiator. If yes, remove hoses to heater matrix and flush with a hosepipe. Reconnect and fill with antifreeze mix.
Listen for any gurgling going on. Remove (small) heater hose when engine has just started (so not hot)
(!!! coolant will come out!!!) but should remove airlock. By remove I mean loosten clip and wiggle it untill you get a trickle of coolant out of the side - then tighten clip again. - Aim for around a cupfull of loss.
3 - check that the control from the dash is actually moving a cable to open a water valve somewhere. Plactic parts break unfortunately.
