Mini heater problem

10

Asked by Jan 13, 2017 at 01:24 PM about the 2010 MINI Cooper

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The heating in the car is only hot when driving at speed e.g. Motorway
driving. As soon as you get into traffic the heating goes cold. I have just
changed the thermostat but that has not worked. Can someone please advise
me on what to try next?
Thanks Greg

Low heater output at low engine speeds is a sure sign of an air pocket. bleed the system at high RPM as possible to get all the air out of the system...

Did you ever get this sorted Greg? Mine is exactly the same right now in this weather too

I can’t find any other explanations that fit your description of the same problem I’m having
