Recently bought this car only to find out thr heating dosnt work on one side. Was told it's electrical of one mechanic to then be informed by another it's not. (the mechanics were picked through the garage I bought the car from) also centeral locking has a mind of its own. Not to fussed about that but when it dosnt work I'm unable to lock my car at all even with a key. The drivers side does but the other doors don't. I'm desperate to get it sorted. Driving around in a freezing cold car that won't lock! Any advice would be grateful appreciated.

The heating may be a flap motor or a broken gear but these can have a problem with the flaps breaking in the heater box requiring the removal of the heater box for repair or replacement.As far as the locking goes it sounds like a wiring problem somewhere

With regards to your locking problem. Sounds very silly but I did it. Make sure all the doors are closing properly including the boot. This should rectify your problem.

I really hope it does.
