Cold inside my esprit (1998) GT3

Recommended Posts


I've only had my esprit a few months, so this is all pretty new to me but anyway here's the problem.

I can't get any heat inside the car. The dial is obviously set to hot and I've bleed the radiator through, but still no joy. Could it be the thermostat. Can anyone help.

Hee hee, I hope I can pass on something to a fellow GT3 owner, I got my 99 in October, azure blue, whats yours?

I posted like this only a few weeks ago!

The heat only comes to the footwells or window, so turn off the face blowers before you freeze! The try the recirculate button a few times, as this may free up the intake which sometimes jams. If you want to check it, open the front compartment and watch the black plastic long oval at front middle base of windscreen open and close as you press the button. This 'magic' trick worked for me and I find the car heats up much quicker with re-circulate on, just don't use up all the oxygen in your excitment at becomming warm!

Hope that works for you
