Heater resistor.

Yesterday as a birthday treat for myself I decided to have a go at replacing the F's heater resistor, I must say I found the job a lot easier that I thought it would be, evidently my body is still quite flexible @ 74! Anyway as I was in that area I took a look at the position of the heater's water valve that I also have to replace, I think that is going to be a lot harder as the room for access is very, very limited. Has anyone on here done this job and if so are you able to offer any advice? All sensible suggestion's/advice welcome. Many thanks. Regards. D4KGP.

To access the water valve, you will have to take the centre console out, which means removing the seats, armrest, rear storage bin. There is also a metal bracket behind the centre console that has to come out, which means that the heater controls need to be removed to one side as well as the heater controls' support bracket needs to be removed.
Hi thanks for the pic's but I knew where it was situated, so have you changed the valve at any time? Regards D4KGP.
No, I haven't replaced the valve, but I just finished replacing the 5 hoses associated with the heater.
