Default heater questions

My friend has a 2008 SX4 (just bought it) and the heater only blows ambient temperature air. Never gets warm. I have been asked to check it out for her, but need to know what to expect as I will have only a short time to work on it. Have been told it might be something to do with the blend door actuator. So where is it located, and can the blend door be manually moved until I can get parts? I appreciate any help or suggestions.

Just had a look through the workshop manual and there are a few variations.

Heater only-
Heater with manual air conditioning-
Heater with auto air conditioning-

Some functions are cable rather than actuator depending on version.
LHD or RHD

You can download the correct workshop manual here 2007-2009 SX4 Parts Catalog & Service Manual

Thanks Dudleydo. I don't have any experience digging through service manuals, but I expect the answers are in there somewhere, if I can figure out which link to use and get the correct information. Should be a learning experience.

Let us know if it has aircon manual or automatic and I'll have a shifty in the manual as well.

Automatic aircon will have the temperature on the dial .

I've put this together from the RW420 manual (2L Petrol), I doubt they vary depending on engine.

Hope it helps..

First element that was not mentioned: is the engine temperature indicator in normal range?

And see this:

Got it fixed. Turned out that the temperature control door was just stuck. Easy fix. I gave the linkage a tug and it popped loose and started working. Probably would not have found it without the service manual you sent. Thanks a bunch for all the help. Great information.

Default Parts????

OK, now the heater blend actuator seems to have quit. Does anybody know where I might be able to order one? Can't seem to find one in any of my searches. Any good Suzuki parts sources?
