  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    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?

    Hey there guys, VW: Adopted 2002 GLX Wagon 4Mo 2.8L Automatic with 131k miles. Did a bunch of stuff to get it all nice and happy. For the most part, it is (shy of a hole in a flex pipe) running pretty well. With winter coming up I wanted to check the heat...and it is still being wonky. Last...

    The dashboard temp gauge shows the engine heating to normal temp and staying at normal temp. When I turn the heat on it blows cold air. My question is: Do the codes mean that is actually the problem? Or, is it possible to have those codes but the flaps are actually working properly? I...

    Knocked out a pair of these at lunch today. Hopefully they get installed very soon. My plan is to mount them to the front side of the radiator core support along each side of the radiator / a/c condenser. This should eliminate any heat problems with the ballasts. Those are 10mm high fins on the...

    03 Passat Wagon GLX ATQ FWD. Well, "winter" (a term I use loosely here in Florida) is upon us, and my 17 yr old son's 03 Wagon (which he absolutely loves) doesn't have heat. I can feel that both heater hoses are hot, so water is circulating, but there is no heat. I ran VCDS and came up with a...

    I live in Arizona, so in the summer temperatures reach 100+ consistently. After I've been driving, my 1999 V6 passat FWD (140,000 miles), for 30+ minutes through the extreme heat my car will start to hesitate when I accelerate. Right at about the 3000 rpm mark the engine will stutter but recover...

    Hello. This is the car with Climatic (no dual zone) system that has no heat on the passenger side of the car. The airflow and coolant level are okay. Does this car have one or two hot/cold flaps? I believe it is only one. If one flap, is it possible that heater core is clogged and if yes, how...

    I had heat until I replaced the alternator and with the car in the service position to remove the alternator I had to disconnect the lower radiator hose. Put everything back to normal, added antifreeze mixture and did the burping procedure as always. No heat and lower radiator hose is warm but...

    Hi guys, I've not too long had this car and it's had the problem since the start, it's one of a few issues (leaking rocker cover gaskets, engine mounts and more), but is the most annoying now it's coming into summer in NZ. I've researched the possible problems, but it doesn't appear to be...

    I have a 2003 1.8T Passat and noticed that my heat wasn't getting hot last night. The car is new to me as of August, but I swear I remember driving home late one night with the heat on and getting too hot. Last night was the first time I had used the heat in some time and it was just warm on my...

    Hi all..my first post... When having full heat on (climatronic) there is almost no heat in the right floor vent and right side vent. The right defroster is not hot either. I have changed the right side flap motor and I have tried with another climate panel with no luck. After changing the motor...

    My Passat wagon is only putting out just enough heat to defrost the windows on cool - but not cold - days. Five or ten degrees above ambient is the best she can do. She's had this issue since I bought her (Used in Aug 2014 with 130K miles. She now has 170K miles). It has gotten worse/colder...

    I've got an 02 1.8 fwd with fairly low heat and given the winters up here in Canada , heat is pretty darn important. So I know low heat can be a problem caused by various issues and the leading culprit according to my research seems to be air pockets. Last week I had a pretty bad coolant leak...

    So a little bit of backstory, I'm an 18 year old guy who knows a little about cars, but not a ton. So I bought a 2003 VW Passat GLS with a 1.8 turbo last spring and now for the past few months my heat has been failing me. At first it didn't work at all it just blew cold air so I did a little...
