Sounds as if the heater valve is stuck open. Remove the seat belt and clean the retract mechanism, also check the path for snags.

Forgive me if this is an archive item, but I find that when I turn on the defrost setting, it's full-hot, and the same with air to the feet...always hot. If I turn on the vent (in your face), I can get cool air. My question is this...what the heck are those temperature adjusting knobs for if all I can get is hot air?? Is something stuck?

Also, the driver's side seatbelt has a very weak retract, my Bentley manual seems to indicate the unit must be replaced as a whole, is this the case? Funny how a weak retract on a seatbelt can be such a pain in the ass!!

Expensive (duh!)?
