Title: Beta Saloon heater matrix
Post by: squiglyzigly on January 25, 2019, 06:19:28 PM
Does anyone know if the S2/S3 coupe/hpe heater matrix is the same as Saloon S2 matrix?

Thanks
Ian

I can have a look but can I clarify what you mean by S2/3 are you really meaning S2 FL (S3 in Italy) and S2 FL 2 (S4 in Italy) my microfiche reader isn't working so can't check the really late cars but I'll have a look.

S2FL (Series 3) coupť/hpe/spider vs. Series 2 update (long gutter, electronic ignition) berlina matrix is the same. Earlier S2 cars it appears that all except some 1300 berlina are the same. Even most S1 seem to have the same matrix although they offer a different one for scandanavian countries ( probably when Saab were selling them!)

Thanks for that. The Saloon that Iím restoring is a Ď78 build/Ď79 uk registered short gutter model (with electronic ignition) and Iím not sure what condition the matrix will be in when itís running as the stripped engine had head gasket problems.

I have a couple of heater boxes from 81-84 coupe/hpe in the loft, and so I was hoping they will fit should I need one.

Thanks again
Ian

I'll try to remember to check the late series ones too but suspect they will be the same as well so all good news! Unusual for lancia really!
