yea i no its a sporting i have but its standard unit and living in N.I. there arent very many seicentos about and even less sportings in the scrappy.
Rob Just spray the unit you have rather than buy a new one save yourself some money. The unit is detachabale P.S all sportings have re-circulation of air. Think its only the S model that deosnt have this
Evening fiatforum I spent a few minutes this morning removing the firewall and to see if i can solve the issue mentioned above. After removing the firewall i am massively unsure what i am doing. I didnt want to delve any deeper with out some help from someone with this issue before. I took a few pictures which i have attached. The photo with the knobs on is to illustrate the issue. THe knob clicks
you would need to look at the connections.you wont need a heater matrix(assume that the part your talking about)and may just need some plastic bits from the scrappy. not something ive done on the cinq but someone will be on soon who has im sure
The heater unit needs to come out to check whats gone gaga. First remove the battery then all the carpet stuff round the back of the engine bay then the air filter. Inside remove the dash cowl and release the heater unit from behind the heater controls. Under the bonnet again and release all the bolts holding the heater in. With a bit of wiggling it should come out into the engine bay. Cheers D
Thanks Ill pull it out (the heater) and have a look. Cheers Katana
Think it comes out from the engine side. Cheers D
you can change it with out taking dash out done it on mine
On my Cinq I needed to remove the wiper motor & linkage first. Sadly I only worked that out when the heater was jambed by the wiper linkage Once Id got the heater back in and the wiper linkage out the heater came out easily. Cant see the Sei being that different.

The whole heater assembly has to come out and that is from the engine side. So yes battery out airfilter off cooling system drained and disconnected remove carper bulkhead wiper mechanism and those are the bits I can remember. Inside dash cowl out and I think four screws holding the box into the dash. Have fun. Cheers D
Frig that... how much would it cost me at the gararge do u reckon
Originally Posted by cinqmeister Frig that... how much would it cost me at the gararge do u reckon Its probably three hours work so 3 x the labour rate of the garage of your choice plus the VAt of course. Cheers D
about with further wiring changes Yep I suppose I do mean the fan resistor. Forgot to attach photos here we go (below). Suppose as suggested - I try and find out if the resistor (pictured on the end of the assembly) is duff first then I could maplin a new one across the S resistor unit Will attampt to check out the wiring tomoz Cheers Jon Attached Thumbnails       __________________ fiat

Best bet is probably to remove the whole heater fanmatrix unit. Your best access is through the driver side (assuming left hand drive) carpet like insulation in the engine bay. There should be more information in the seicento Technical Manial in the downloads section.
they do cinq sportings in loads of colors red yellow blacksilverimola. there is loads of them. and the seicento sx was the 899 was it not and the s the 1108 engines. then they moved to the active with the 1108mpi units in. to change yours to a sporting you would need. bumpers arb supsension exhaust alloys tacho carbon look heater surround de-badge and jobs is a good one. say hello to the seicento sporting.
Ok youve found one half of the equation. You will need to remove the whole heater box to get at the electrical connection which is cunningly concealed under the unit. After releasing all the bolts in the engine compartment you will need to go inside the car and remove the dash cowl and release the screws either side of the heater control slides to allow the unit to be withdrawn from the engine side. Removing the TB will help give clearance too. Cheers D

Hi Ok so from what I can figure out so far replacing the heater control valve (cock thingy) means I need would need to empty the coolant from the heater or am I over complicating things Does look fairly straight forward as the heater unit is in the engine bay which makes a nice change. Jon
you cant really so anything with the camshafts as in the lifter are shim-less hydralics so no point thinking a a hill climb you want a nice low ratio to get off the line quickly (you all know the pain going up the hill in the wrong gear) so it could be worth going for a abarth gearbox(ask todger182 if he still has it and could ship it) there harder to find but should be good on 13 standard alloys with

Try it with the heater in place as it is a
yes but unfortunately it is on the underside of the heater unit. With the heater lifted (but with pipes still attached) it is possible to get to the screws with a small ratchet. You may find it is just the thermal fuse that has failed. The thermal fuse is the tiny silver bit of the resistor module.
