No wonder the heater never worked!!!

Well, been busy stripping parts from the Zuk body and finally got to the dash and heater assembly today. Took out the heater core and volia! The core fins were all bent to hell and clogged with dirt and anything else you can think of. It's a wonder any heat came outta that thing.
Another thing I noticed is that the windshield frame is rusted bigtime. Need to replace it. Should fix the damn leak I've had since owning the Zuk...
I know a guy who'll sandblast my entire Zuk for about $200 Canadian. Once and for all I'm gonna weld it up right and line it, frame and all.

Cheers,
Steve

Hmmm...that sounds like a good idea about the heat. My heat hasn't been workin since I got it either and since it's summer, I pretty much but it on the back burner. But I prolly should check it all out before I forget and winter is here...

Re: No wonder the heater never worked!!!

Ya, this is a pretty common occurance with our Zuk's. Before taking the whole darn thing apart (because it won't be fun) I suggest you search out and find the article on using a vacuum to clean it out. I did but it wasn't enough but it may be for you? You basically drill a hole or two in the heater housing being VERY careful not to hit the core itself and use a piece of hose to suck the garb out.

Cheers,
Steve
