      How old/clogged is your radiator?

      What do you mean that you are not getting heat in the vehicle?
      Like if your heater does not work?
      Also keep in mind that some of the oem water pumps have plastic empeller and usually start to slip before they go completly out.
      You should pressure test your cooling system.
      Good luck!!

      Hey Nich, I've got the same problem but I'm getting heat coming out the vents. You might have air trapped in your hoses. When you drive it for a while is the top hose really tight to squeeze? Is the waterpump making any funny sounds?

      On this model it's an accessory. The Mk IV's have the plastic impeller on the timing belt. The MkIII's are an accessory, like an altinator or PS pump.

      Nicholas, check out my post with perez05's similar problem. Hope it helps.
