Welcome

If you do find one (saw one on fleebay few months back but unknow history) let us know what it costs. Mine has been bypassed so i have no heat aircon work though which would bother me more not to have. Doesn't really bother me no heater as it's not daily drive but would be nice to know what it would cost

Welcome to the nuthouse buddy. To be honest as legarth says you are probably better off getting a new one. As you have discovered it is a ball ache totake out and replace sowhy take the risk of a second hand one going wrong in a few thousand miles. They aren't that much more expensive for the piece of mind you get.

 

Good luck with it.

Get a new one as the others have suggested! No point fitting a used one after all that hassle to only find in a few months or so it gone again!

Do yourself a favour mate, dont buy a 2nd hand one and donnt get it repaired, a new one is the only way to go i found that out the hard way believe me !
