hi guys i have a 407 hdi 2006 saloon, it has the dual zone heater malarky ive noticed that its started blowing cold ive removed the stereo and the digital display and also the vents that blow up onto the widscreen to expose a view of the flaps. the shaft is snapped but both parts are still in situeim a carpet fitter by trade and im thinking about using some very strong adhesive that we use to stick gripper rods to concrete floors (very very strong) it sets like stone when it goes off after a few hours. im hoping/thinking this may work but i guess my question is ........ how can i stop the top flaps from closing when i turn off the ignition?????? i would be greatly endebted to anyone who can help me with this rather rediculous problem.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

Hiya, had the horrible flap problem myself so share your pain. I think the only way to stop the top flaps from reverting is to disconnect power to the motors with ignition still on (I may be wrong). Are you trying this repair 'keyhole' down the vents?

Cracks in heater flap shaft

Hi there,

I have made 3 posts re-heater flaps, log on, go to quick links click on posts, on page 2 you will find a "Sticky" by Karl68s heater flap repair, please read last page (25) I am going to buy some adhesive "JB weld 24hr steel reinforced epoxy" as used and recommended by Captain Jack and attempt to repair the cracks in my heater flap shaft over the next couple of days, will post photos of the outcome.

Hope the photos help :thumb:
