Subject: Re: Heater Matrix Failure on 9000


Toby, Mine's the same. I've been putting off doing the job since last Autumn. At the rates you cite, I'd snatch the guy's hand off. With an estimate of 2 hours, he must either know exactly what he's talking about, or completely the opposite. Can't really tell which. By the way, do you know if the matrix has been replaced before? I've heard that they tend to go at around 80k - 100k, so it's possible that this is you car's second failure. If not then you must have had a good one. Adrian 1992 9000 CS 2.3 16-i, 109k miles.
