Faulty Vanagon T25 T3 Thermex brand heater core matrix cut open Posted: Fri Jan 11, 2019 6:07 pm     Views: 11      Rating: Not rated

My new heater core wouldn't produce heat.
I cut it open to find out why.
I reckon the gap under the scalloped edge divider is allowing the coolant to just go in and out of the pipes without being forced through the core channels.
I fitted a better core from Foursome vehicle heaters in the UK and it works great.
