I bought one from Atkins a few months ago. The first one he sent was the wrong part, and with a little prodding,and some emails back and forth I finally got the right unit. I have yet to install it, but it doesn't appear to be too difficult. I have the cooling system drained down for a intake manifold coolant leak,so I plan to do it soon. Mine isn;t leaking, but rather the heat is always on regardless of the position of the lever. It seems the valve is leaking past when in the closed mode.

Mazda still has them... I think it was around 50 bucks.... Also, you sometimes see early Courier ones on fleabay... Same part as OEM Mazda, I believe.

If that valve is leaking and you don't want to spend the bucks, you can just run a hose from the outlet to the inlet on the block, creating a loop. So no coolant enters or exits the cab. Since Spring is around the corner you won't need a heater for long.

Drain the heater core, it's a real fun job.

You can also get a new heater core for $45 but look it up for a Courier. Advanced Auto is where I got mine.
