Product Description



Vauxhall VX220 / S2 Lotus Elise Replacement Heater Kit

Our heater kit has been designed as a drop-in replacement for the ailing OEM units found in both the Vauxhall VX220 and S2 Lotus Elise cars. Due to age the original heater tends to suffer from brittle plastic housings and can either crack or even be missing whole chunks altogether - especially around the enclosure mounting points. The internal air flap is also prone to clogging up preventing an adequate seal when in the closed position, this can allow some air to bypass the heater matrix altogether reducing its efficiency.

With our design we have tried to address the issues mentioned above, we moved away from the troublesome air flap and instead use a 4-port bypass water valve, when the heater knob is rotated to the cold position the water flow is directed back to the engine bypassing the heater altogether. The heater enclosure is made from 2.5 and 3mm thick laser cut aluminium sheet which is then anodised black for corrosion protection, the panels are held together using the slot and tab design allowing ease of disassembly should you need to clean or replacement any components.

A high quality and powerful centrifugal blower supplied by SPAL is used as the driving force behind this heater, these units are very reliable and come with a 3 year manufacturer's warranty.

This is a full drop in kit and includes all the components to get you up and running, this includes items such as CNC machined Mounting Brackets, custom Bowden Cable, Heater Hoses, Ducting, A4 Hose Clips and Fixing Hardware.

Designed and manufactured in the UK.

Installations Notes

The heater can be installed without removing the front clam from the car, it is a little tricky and would be easier installing with the front clam removed. If there are any other front end jobs you are considering then it may be worth combining them with the heater install.

To fit our new Bowden Heater Cable you will have to remove the plastic dash trim and whole upper dash panel to get access to the back of the heater control panel, unfortunately this panel does not come out forwards, only from behind!

Ideally we would have liked to supply the kit as a true plug and play solution but unfortunately are unable to source the original fan connectors to plug into the OEM blower harness, and so inevitably there will be some wiring involved with this installation. If you still have the original heater then you can cut off the wiring with connector and solder it to the SPAL fan wires. Alternatively, we also supply the male connector to suit the SPAL Fan 4 pin connector. All connectors, insulation, cable ties etc are supplied for both options.

  • This kit will require good knowledge of auto mechanics & wiring to ensure proper installation.
  • This kit is for right hand drive cars only!
