Thanks, I'm going to do through the bulkhead. Just ordered everything got the pipe slightly cheaper on Ebay. Will arrive 4th January so will update in the new year. I put this off since the summer but now it's getting cold and my heating isn't working 🥶Hi Ed,
I did the way shown in the YouTube video through the bulkhead, both methods most likely work the same way.
I found the easiest way is to remove them from the bulkhead as you don't require any tools to remove the pipes from the bulkhead as they simply unclip, you can also easily switch between the inlet and outlet of the matrix to flush it from both sides which I recommend as I managed to get a lot more s**t out of by doing that.
just to note the items I suggested are for the same method in the Youtube video so I don't know what else you would need to attach directly to the pipe if you decide to go that route.
Hi Joseph. I've now flushed the radiator, both ways. How do I completely drain the system? There is still water in the radiator. I have pre-mixed coolant so I need the system to be totally drained.only reason i did it was because my girlfriend was moaning about how cold it was in her car lol
Thanks. I did that, with great difficulty. I've pumped water through the heater matrix (both ways), drained the system and refilled the coolant. I'm getting more heat now, but not as much as I remember when it was a new car.there is a tap on the bottom corner drivers side of the radiator, or just open the bottom hose.
I may also have air in the system. I only used about 3 litres of coolant.Thanks. I did that, with great difficulty. I've pumped water through the heater matrix (both ways), drained the system and refilled the coolant. I'm getting more heat now, but not as much as I remember when it was a new car.
Once it warmed up I drove around, it got reasonably warm, but then when I stopped the air started to cool down. Could it be the thermostat?
