Hi guys just wondered if some one on here could explain to me how to back flush the heater matrix on my year 2000 matiz se+ with aircon or even better post some pics kind of an idiots guide? I have read the other threads on backflushing a matrix but am a bit lost I have flushed heater matrixes before on other cars and found it fairly easy but Im lost on the Matiz all i can see are aircon pipes in the way I cant even see where the pipes for the heater matrix are. I flushed the cooling system yesterday and refilled with new coolant mixed correctly and had heat from the heaters for a brief while not alot though and im sure theres no air in the system also when up to operating temprature my temprature gauge sits inbetween the quater and the halfway mark this normal on a matiz as other cars I have always sat dead on the halfway mark at normal operation temprature. The cars off to the garage tomorrow for a new cambelt and water pump so I think they will refill with coolant and bleed the system right? . I only flushed and did the coolant to see if it would help with the heaters and loads of manky orange coloured water came out dont think the coolant had been changed for some time. Also gave the car a good service oil change etc while I was at it and she runs great. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance.
