Smile Heat repair

It's amazing.

I buy a Chilton manual for my Mercedes 300D and it gathers dust.

I lost heat the other day. I went to the manual, nothing. I did the usual, flushed the system, check the thermastat, etc. Nothing, still blowing cold.

I search "Mercedesshop" and bingo everyone refers to the diapharm at the heat valve. Disconnect the electrical connector and alas it turns warm, we're getting "warmer".

I order and replaced the diaphram in about ten minutes and it's blowing hotter than hot.

What am I getting at, just a thank you to all the members that contribute and make this a very useful site.

The above was so simple why wouldn't it be in a Chilton manual?

Thanks again

Exactly, which part was bad??
My '80 300D has a "heat control unit", $$$$, that is cracked, corroded, clogged and condemned. The PO installed a regular plumbing shut-off valve, which is not so good(a PITA).
A new unit, I think, is available for $700
