I am new to the site, and not of a great technical knowlege on the next two queries i am going to ask, so please look past my ignorance lol.
OK, I am currently working on getting my 1997 328i back on the road. but there are two problems I have no clue about, and was hoping somone on here could tell me what i need to solve these issues, to fix the problems.
First off - The car was parked up for a coupel of months, including a spell sitting in bad snow and frost. The car was at a mechanics but they never got round to looking at it, so i decided to lift it but noticed that when i did the heater would not come on (its the digital display one) it would do nothing at all! The car then sat up for another while, being started up and left ticking over every now and again to keep her alive, then eventually the heater started working! problem is now though, it wont turn off!! it goes up and down in the settings, but when i turn it off on the display, the screen goes bank but the heater can still be heard blowing away behind the dash. Anyone know what i may need to do, or to buy to sort this.?
Secondly - Another one of the failures on the MOT was that the steering column is not secured correctly, when the lever under the steering wheel is up and in place, the steering wheel still mvoes up and down freely. What could i do to fix this?
any advice greatly appreciated!
