Replace your heat valve, if you open your bonnet then you will see it on your left side two water pipes is connected to it.

I know this thread is old, but I have the same issue as durand, replaced heater valve a few times now, the aircon works perfectly until you stop somewhere for a few seconds/mins and when the car is started again, hot air is all that you feel. I suspect that it may be the heather control pot, in the cabin, but I am looking for a cheap used replacement to test my theory, Ford want R6k just for that lot.

I have the same problem. Is it possible to disable it completely. I would rather dress up warm in winter than put up with this

HAD THE SAME PROBLEM, DISCONECTED THE PIPES RUNNING INTO THE HEAT VALVE. JOIN THEM TOGETHER AND THE COLD WATER NO LONGER GOES INSIDE THE CAB BUT CIRCULATE OUTSIDE
