Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Ford KA and the heater is only blowing out hot air.
It's almost certainly the heater control valve, which is mounted between the engine compartment and the plenum chamber (i.e. the area under the black plastic at the base of the windscreen). The valve is controlled by the temperature knob on the dash and has two rubber pipes going into each side of it (hot and cold) The part costs about £30 and all you need to fit it is a crosspoint screwdriver, a 10mm spanner and a pair of pliers, but access is difficult because you have to remove -- in this order -- both windscreen wipers, six rubber plugs and screws securing the black plastic trim, radiator header tank (just enough to tilt it forwards out of the way), three screws securing windscreen plastic to plenum chamber plastic, single screw securing both halves of windscreen plastic, three screws securing plenum chamber plastic to the body.
With all this out of the way, disconnect the wiring plug on the heater control valve, use pliers to remove the spring clips, pull out the two rubber hoses on each side and then remove the old part. Reassembly is the reverse of removal but DON'T forger to plug in the electrical connector. There's no need to drain the radiator because only a cupful of water wil be lost. Use an old towel to stop it getting everywhere.

have you solved this problem yet?
Did you try moving the vent adjustment to cool position?
Please explain what you have done so far.

your heater hose may have a leak or a blockage, preventing the hot water circulating. Pull off the heater hose and flush it out. Heater hose generally goes from your radiator T junction to the firewall of the vehicle.
Hope this helps
