Find the correct Heater Matrix & Motors for your car
Heater Matrix & Motors
Your car's heater matrix acts almost as a radiator, in that it has hot water pumped through it. Rather than radiating, though, the matrix then has air passed over it, which in turn is warmed before being pumped into the car's cabin.
Problems can occur when anti-freeze leaks, which often happens into the passenger footwell so it is well worth looking at every year.
If you can smell the sweet smell of anti-freeze and your heater seems to not be working properly, it might be time to get the toolbox out.
Heater matrixes don't tend to fail, but they can quite easily get blocked. Clearing them can be problematic, and it's usually wise to just replace it with a new part. If you need a hand or just want pointing in the right direction, our helpful store colleagues are on hand to help
