    missus got a problem with her car.

    Well she owns a punto mk1. 1.2 8v

    Well since her car got broken into, her heater doesn't seem to work as well when the fan setting is on 2, but on 1 it gets really hot (like it supposed). but it the speed goes any higher thers no heat?

    so in the winter its either don't see the road and high risk of crash or freeze to death as heaters aren't warm enough!

    What could the problem be?

    When you increase the speed dial, do you hear the fan blow or spin harder like it would in most cars. What happen when you move the temperature dial.

    if it speeds up ok it could be a stuck/faulty thermostat in the system not allowing the water to flow through the matrix heater properly

    Themostat is probably the first thing to change. It was easy on a citroan ZX, I don't know about Astras though.
