Where is the heatvalve located? Its cold in my car =/

Hello there. I am trying to figure out why my car dosent have any heat.
The engine is @ normal temperature and so on.

Where can i find the heatvalve? I want to se if its opens as it should.
And maybe try the flush the system after that. Maybe its clogged.
I have a 328ci -00.

Hello everyone!
Now i located the heatvalve. It works fine. Still got no heat doh..! =/ The hoses from the heatvalve is pretty cold, but if i squeese them alittle bit they will start to warm up. Then i get the fan going and i have a warm car for around 5-10mins. Then it starts cooling again, and i can repeat the squees solution. But i cant do that every time

I have been bleeading the system today, and i dont se any diffrence. Any tips?!

open bleeder and expansion tank cap and start the car...and keep filling it until it stops sucking it down and air bubbles stop coming out. then usually just to make sure its bled i'll drive the car til it warms up and let it run for a bit (with cap and bleeder closed). then let it completely cool down. once it cools down *most* of the air should make its way up to the top and you can just top it off from there. but i have a air bleeder at work that does all this for me
