    Hi everybody
    Can you help me, the Swift Kontiki / Fiat Ducato 2005 radio and immediate surrounding fascia gets extremely hot (clip board, heater control panel...central consol really! ), so hot the CD starts mis playing. When we take the CD's out they are extremely hot -so hot you can only just hold by the edges. I suspect that now winter heating is required in the cab, that a heater duct has loosened or broke and is heating the radio and inside the central console. Before I pull the facia apart to inspect I would welcome others with similar experience or tech. knowledge to advise.
    Many thanks for viewing
    Paul
