Water Pump Change - No Heat

I changed the water pump on my 2000 323Ci and now I have no heat. Temperature maintains in normal range while driving so the pump is working.

Any suggestions would be helpful

Possibly the heater core (just like a small radiator in the lower dash) may not be getting coolant due to clogs.

Heater worked fine until I replaced the water pump. Have a feeling the water pump is putting out enough pressure to push the hot water to the heater core.

Welcome to the Werkz.

Its probably an air lock in the system obstructing the coolant from making its way through the heater core. Put the heater setting on max, put the front of the car up, (Steep driveway or ramps) and then bleed the air out of it as per the normal process. Hopefully this will help.
