OK understood. Thanks again for both your input I'm a lot further than I was :D
Caddy 2006 SDI BST, HNN gearbox, which loses oil through seals if I go over 3k revs :lol:
Touran dashboard, electric windows, rear seat conversion, fully sound deadend and carpeted.
Resprayed indium grey outside my house using rattle cans, a pop up tent and a fishing bivvy.
Paintwork looks great in the rain :lol:

So I've used my new electrical skills and took a piece of red 14 gauge wire, removed the flap control motor and tied the wire onto the mechanism.

Now all I have to do is pull on the wire and it will move the heater setting to full heat.

If I require the cold setting I just have to drive over a pot hole which automatically sets it to cold.

Who needs forum access :lol: :lol:
