hello, there are actually two small matrix (joined by two pipes) mounted vertically in opposite ends of a steel box that sits under the dash - once the instruments/switches are disconnected and the dashtop out the way, the flap levers can be prised off the shafts and the box unscrewed to reveal the matrix assembly

I tried repairing mine where it had leaked and been bypassed by previous owner, who probably didn't fancy pulling it out and decided to opt for the extra jumper and a rag instead. Didn't have much luck tho, even after cleaning brass/copper to a brilliant shine and using some good ol' chunky 60/40 and hand-held gas torch - my thru-hole electronics soldering is quite nifty these days but have much to learn in the plumbing area, gave up and resorted to carefully stretching the cracked pipe apart, pushing on a 2" section of rubber coolant hose and clamping with hose clips, positioning them so they didn't foul on the case, which sits very close to the pipes

the blower motor is tucked away in the offside wing on all the Mk2's i've seen
it seemed like a good idea at the time

 I got a heater matrix available, they are the same on MK1 & MK2 diesels the petrol engined vehicles had a slightly different unit.

Page 1 for the heating system is here, use the 'next' link at the bottom of the page.

discovered my repair wasn't good enough and water (not all that hot either) was still getting past the hose and dribbling out onto cab floor so it's come out (again) for a (at least semi) professional (solder) repair and the only intact spare has gone in - was tempted to fit the spare originally but wanted to see if my repair worked (word of warning, just in case you thought the hose/clamps idea sounded in any way attractive, i'm now not so sure!)

discovered the point at which I clamped the hot/cold valve cable was critical in my unit last night - I had originally clamped it with about 1/4inch of insulation forward of the clamp - refitted and discovered the control panel was them restricted by the cable and could not be screwed tight to the dash, so out it all came again, as unfortuneately it was not possible to slacken the screw holding the clamp in place with the unit in the vehicle due to insufficient room under bulkhead to get even a bit on a miniture T-bar/ratchet in

(quite annoying but much like the brake servo/footvalve and other awkward components where access is restricted, the more times you remove and refit, the easier it becomes - well maybe not easier, but I find you get resigned to getting it wrong over and over and the initial annoyance and frustration gives way to certain level of acceptance of ignorance and plodding determination)

*align edge of insulation on cable with front edge of clamp to hopefully avoid 'the fun'*
(or don't worry about the rusted box and simply fit a complete replacement unit without swapping good matrix into clean box!)

does anything work that you own chugg?
i bet you have to flush your toilet with a bucket of water and the handle is broken off of the bucket.
and the seat is missing off the pan and the toilet pan is cracked at the back were it used to join the soil pipe.
the kitchen ceiling has fallen down because the toilet has been leaking for about 10 years above the kitchen.
theres no electric down stairs because when the celing fell in it snapped the pipe off the washing machine and shorted the electrics out down stairs.

bet your thinking how the fuck does he no all that.

simple it was me that burgled your house.
love you.

:) if you'd burgled my house you wouldn't be typing posts, you'd have to get someone else to do it (or be sending messages from the spirit world!)

it's not quite that bad, the matrix seems to be holding it's own, is fully screwed into dash etc., with nice shiny stainless fixings (lost one of the plastic knobs tho! - a recurring problem)

unfortuneatly the conrod in my generator distintegrated 10 days ago and is still out of action while I gather all the necessary parts! (a familiar sounding story round here)

I won't tell whats now wrong with my sensing tank here, or that will be another thread derailed ;)
