It didnt overheat on a 110 miles trip home and the heater got kinda warm but the knobs stuck so couldnt open it all the way! Is there a way of unjamming the heater as two of my cars have!

I'm guessing by the banter that there is a difference between early and late thermostat housings. Mine is a metal one and we* had no trouble changing it at the weekend. Perhaps we were just lucky!

Of course, my 16v has the benefit of a temperature gauge so it was easy to spot that the 'stat was at fault.

Still have the heat thing stuck though! (see other post)

* well, my mechanic did it while I just stood and chatted!
