18/09/2005 20:16:42   bart   My heater is always heating, regardless of the heater lever position. Therefore I removed the heater valve for further inspection. When removing the heater valve cover I accidentally broke the copper thermostat connection wire at the valve side.

After messing with an adjustment screw within the valve mechanism it looks like the valve works again, although I don't completely understand the functioning of this screw and the thermostat connection.

Is the copper wire a part of the heater element or is it part of the valve? Does anyone know about suppliers which still have heater spare parts?

Thank you, bart

I think the heater valve assembly is still available. I can't remember where from, but I recall that it is a V*lv* part.
