    I have a 2004 GLX with the Climatronic , sometimes after driving a while with the AC on the fan quits blowing. Then when I shut the car off and start the car, the fan still won't blow and then later the fan will just start up, blow fine for a while. Have anyone had this problem with their AC?

    2003 VW Passat 2.8 V6 GLX.. not 4 motion. The car has had a what I would call a geary noise for some time now. Imagine a gear drive sound. I am in the middle of a timing belt change and decided now would be a good time to deal with that. I started the car with no serpentine belt on and the...

    I took my 2006 2.0T Passat, which I purchased 2 months ago, to have the freon recharged to a local tire/auto repair shop as the air conditioning was barely cool. I was told that the "inner motor wasn't pulling in the freon." They said it was .7 when they began and they couldn't get it any...

    Dear forum fellows: I love my '05 V6 Passat but I have three annoying problems with its air conditioner: - On random occassions, usually at speeds over 40 mph, there is a whistling sound coming out of the right side fan. If I push the air-recirculation button, the sound dissapears. Obviously...

    Go figure, the hottest it has been in years and the car's A/C decided to quit, sometimes. It functioned fine last week, then yesterday morning I could only get warm air to blow out of the dash. Later in the afternoon I was on the highway at speed and it was cold. Today, again not working...

    I was at stealership today and they pointed out to me that my outer CV boot was starting to crack near inner clamping ring. It is OK now, but of course I need to probably get it replaced soon. I am planning on finally lowering the car in late August (about 6 weeks from now), with new springs...
  13. B5 Information-Base
    I finally got my A/C working thanks to this forum and its awesome users. My only qualm is, a lot of the information is scattered, and it took a lot of time to find everything I needed to check out to get there. I've decided to compile an all-inclusive how-to on pin-pointing what's wrong, and...

    Hi People, Im having a problem with air conditioning system, when the car is up and running and air conditioning system turned off i get an air flow from vents. If air conditioner was previously at "cooling state" i get cold air, but if it was at "heating state" i get hot air. So i need to...
  16. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Hi all. I took delivery of my CC (my very first brand new car) a couple of months back. I've just had the first service done, and I'm a bit puzzled. The dealer changed the oil ... and added 'Oil Conditioner' (for which they charged me $10.00) ... which seems odd. Everything I've ever read...

    I found all the 3 knobs for air conditioning do not illustrate. The rest (radio, buttons on the doors) are OK. It happened before, but went OK themselves. What could be the reasons? Thanks!

    The one in my 99 only works ok below 85 degrees. After that it is not effective. How hard is it to recharge the system? I did a search and came up with nothing.

    The breakdown... Drove to store, had A/C running, and it ran perfectly. Turned it off, came back out of store, and it wouldn't turn back on. Pulled the console deck, and made sure everything was plugged it, and there didn't seem to be anything wrong back there. I fooled around with it a little...
