    Thank you Sheldon. U The Man.

    Re: blowing cold air

    Inside the engine compartment attached to the firewall on the driver's side. Has a 2-wire connector going into it. Remove the 4 screws on the top and the solenoid pulls out, usually the rubber bellows on the bottom of the valve fails. Can get a rebuild kit from most aftermarktet places for less than $50.

    Re: blowing cold air

    Where is the heater control valve on the firewall (inside or outside).no experience on this problem yet.

    Re: blowing cold air (opps! hit key too soon)

    Thanks. I should have searched the archives for this. Feel so dumb now.

    Re: blowing cold air (opps! hit key too soon)

    heat should come out the defrost vents and the heater vents down by the tranny hump.
    No air at all ever domes out of the big vent in the top center of the instrument panel. It's a dummy... was used in early E28s.
    Cold air always comes out of the center vents (the center slider on the HVAC controls. Those vents on the front of the instrument panel, left, 2 center, and right, blow either A/C or fresh cold air... never any heat.

    Re: blowing cold air

    most likely you'll have to do the heater control valve on the firewall

    Re: blowing cold air

    Just to jump on the bandwagon, but I also have the same problem. Hot air out of the defrost vents and the floor, but cold air coming in below the stereo. Faster I go, the more cold coming in. I am assuming that there is a "flap" that is not closing when I flip the switch from fresh air to recycled air.

    Anyone have thoughts, or how to fix?

    Re: blowing cold air (opps! hit key too soon)

    I also have a question regarding heater blowing cold air
    When I turn on heat, seems that heat only blows from the top of dash and would not blow from front dash vent.
    Which part could be broken?

    Re: blowing cold air

    Nope, still haven't figured it out. I had it out on Sat. night when it was about -5F. Once it got warmed up, as long as I stayed below 60-65mph it was ok, but as soon as I got up around 75 it started blowing cold again....very strange. Still haven't gotten around to putting in a new heater valve either.

    blowing cold air

    Question for Sheldon. You have posted about blowing cold air awhile back and I need to know if you got it fixed cause I'am having the same problem now. I need info from you if you don't mind. or anybody from this board
