    hiya, i have climate control, but no matter where i set it i.e 22 or 32(max) its always roasting hot, the only control of the heat i have is the knurled wheel. ive heard alot about Final Stage Resistors but is one of the simptoms.
    cheers

    sounds more like your heater valve(s), if you turn the temp down there should be a noticeable difference in the coolant pipes before and after the heater valve(s) in the engine bay.

    Deffo not the resistor. You can pick a 2nd hand heater valve up for a tenner, will take 10-15 mins to fit
