    after months of fruitless internetsearches and emails and telcos (often as far as turkey) I guess I have found a source for brandnew heating valves for the F328 series which even the OEM manufacturer - presumably Bosch - could not deliver for years.

    I will have the new spare part in my hands in Austria tomorrow- so hold you breath with me and lets hope we found a source for these....

    its here - brandnew part - love it - will install it on the weekend. it seems that our ferrari valve from bosch was also used in some heavy duty construction machines. 150€ price is fine for me - will try to get more and store it.... Image Unavailable, Please Login

    yes thats the little devil - and I just fittet it in 10min - perfect !!! its the same part from bosch - the only thing you have to do is get the little gray adapter of the old valve onto the new valve (the one where the servo motor connects). And I made a small hole in the black arm thats used to screw it to the bracket - this hole was missing,

    But thats it !!

    I already try to get 2 more to have this spare parts in my workshop - just in case ....

    Apologies if i have miss understood but if this part is available for £57 why would you pay 150 euros?

    I guess that the Maranello page shows the last price when it was available. If you want one then Maranello will try to source it for you and you will pay 150 euros + their yellow box fee :eek:

    Actually I tried all known sources before I started the process - but I always heard NLA. My dealer in Munich actually looked through all the old boxes and even asked Maranello directly.... So that hard way was the only way - but it’s here now....

    good news, nice one.
    what was your fault with the old one?
    was it just no heat from one side of the cabin, other side OK?

    I think Martin has some for sale. They look very similar to a Porsche 924 valve and a quick google gave these part numbers. You might be able to adapt them and the price is great at £5/$7:

    Porsche 924/944 heater control valve. 477819017
    VW Jetta and others 171 819 809E, 171 819 809A, 211 819 809

    If only I could - I was searching for them for quite a while and I found some very similar looking ones (but not quite the same one) in a parts catalogue for big caterpillars in turkey. I contacted the guy who speaks a little German and he found the absolut 1:1 parts after 2 weeks via a photo comparison. No partnumber or Brand visible on the packages - only the small Bosch Logo on the valve itself. Anyway he wanted 130€ for the valve and as I was desperate (and he recognized that) and these prices are not uncommon for „Ferrari oem parts“ I am fine with it.

    I have 2 new on stock for emergencies now - but if you all like I could try to get my hands on more of these and sent it to you around Christmas as I will be back inFlorida on December 19th. Doesn’t make any sense to send it from Europe - Shipping & Tax & Duty would get this far beyond 200$ - If we could arrange a group order for USA maybe I even get a better price...

    I found these too but unfortunately wasn’t able to get the motors on it and also they have a quite unusually form - not round as ours and therefore don’t fit in the metal brackets.... has anyone tried to modify them so that they fit?
