    I have a 2015 vw Passat tsi Wolfsburg and the directional air flow knob is not working, the fan itself works but I cannot control where it comes out, it’s stuck on the floor so I cannot defrost my windows or get air flowed to the cabin, is there a simple fix or do I have to replace the unit itself?

    Hello everyone. I have a problem with my CLIMATRONIC unit and I think it has started since retrofitting MFSW but that shouldn't have anything to do with it (other than maybe I damaged wiring?). Everything works, I can have cold air I can have heat, but no flow to the floor vents or defrost, just...

    I have a 2005 B5.5 Passat Wagon, and twice this week had a significant amount of water intrusion (1/2" puddle) on the passenger side foot well after a heavy rain storm. The water appears to be coming from the right hand side of the dash as there was a thin trickle of water coming out from just...

    How to Remove Rear Defroster Button on B5.5 Passat ? Hi all, I have a 2001 B5.5 Passat 1.8t. Does anyone have first hand experience in removing the rear defrost switch button ? I've seen a couple of videos for B5 models, but the location of the button is completely different from mine...

    :( I wonder if anyone ever been there. A couple of months ago I noticed that I was only getting air from the left side of the center dash vent, the passenger side was completely dead. A quick scan on VCDS showed me the following: 00603 - Footwell/defroster Flap Positioning Motor (V85)...

    Just purchased a new 2016 Passat S a couple weeks ago and there is, what I believe to be, a coin rolling around in the front drivers side defrost vent. Any idea if the vent can come out and/or how to get the coin out??

    Now that I've got my son's 03 V6 Passat drive-able, we learned that there is no defrost. His car has Climatronic. Every other setting works perfectly: floor vents work, dash vents work, no air at all from any defrost vent. I checked the Climatronic for codes and there were a couple, but I...

    I can't afford to take it to the dealership so what can I do to troubleshoot to find out the problem? Or are these two problems something needs to be taken care of at a German shop. I have a 2005 VW passat

    It takes 10 minutes for my defrost to work and the middle of the front window is the only part that gets defrosted. Heat works great, just not the defrost. I have done some searches and most result talk about the heater core and having it flushed. Just wondering if others have had similar...

    In light of the colder weather (and the pizza I brought home last night) I've noticed the side defrost vents aren't blowing anything (at least the driver's side one, but the passenger one seemed to be doing nothing, so I assume that one too). If I go full blast on defrost, I can sort of feel it...

    I'm sure the wiring gurus will chime in, but did a search both here and at ecstuning, etc......can't find this. I'm looking for a female end wiring harness for a rear window defrost button on the dashboard. I'm pretty sure that when the funk button was being sold, it came with the female...

    it dipped into the 30's this morning and it took forever for my rear defroster to clear my window in my 08 passat. Is this a normal thing with this car? Or is something wrong?:confused:

    this happened before i went to mechanics school and the mechanic that worked on it replaced a "multifunction switch" ( i think) then it happen again and its was just his poor wire job. But i cant remember what it is or where it is. When i get to my shop tomorrow i'm going to start going through...

    I'm having issues with my '02 AWM B5.5 front windshield defrost. There is little to no air flow through the front defrost vents. I did some minor disassembly (removed the stereo and trim around it) and the manual vent selector control knob has the cable connected on the back of it and rotates...

    This has only happened to me twice, both times at the ski lodge after leaving the car to freeze all day as we played on the snow. Both times the error codes for the flap motors (temp, central and recirculation) came up but after we got down from the elevation everything seems to be working fine...

I was looking online for...
