Hi all, I have a Sportage XE 2005 CRDI 4x4. The heaters sound like they are working fine but hardly any hot or cold air is actually coming out the vents. It is a nightmare at this time a year as I am having to drive with a cloth in my hand to wipe the windscreen all the time. Has anyone any ideas of what the problem may be ?? Ta

I had a problem with my 2008. It was the linkage on the mode adjust servo, located under the dash, accessed rather easily from the drivers floorboard. Just look under there, there is a little black square box, attached to a big white cam. You will probably see a little piece of linkage hanging down. just pop it back in, and you will be in business.
