    Hello All, My recirculation flap motor is bad in my 2007 Passat / B6. I have bought a replacement motor but hesitant to try to replace it with out some guidance.

    2008 Passat 2.0. Just got done replacing most of the AC. Everything but one line and evaporator. All seems to be working okay with the exception that the recirculation button will not stay depressed and does not light up. You can tell that the AC is allowing fresh air in and keeping it from...

    I really need help figuring out the gas recirculation routing. I did scour the Garage and InfoBase sections, but other that wonderful write-ups about changing the vacuum hoses I couldn't find anything to help out. 2003 GLX wagon with ATQ engine, 7/02 production. However, it has the "updated" PCV...

    I had the HVAC fan motor out yesterday because it started to squeak a bit, and in the process found the flap location for cabin recirculation. The cabin recirculation flap does this (see vid) when recirculate is off. It makes noise that is rather annoying when it partially opens / closes when...

    I'm having problems with my recirculate mode feature. When I have recirculate off to use outside air, I get strong air flow from the vents. However, when I turn recirculate on, the air flow drops to barely anything. I ran the climatromic diagnostics and it returned 4fa for recirculation flap...

    On the weekend i removed my PCV system and installed a catch can. But for some reason my re circulation isnt working on the climate control. I know it runs off of vacuum but i cant seem to find which line it is. I plugged all my exposed manifold ports and hooked up any vac lines that i saw that...

    :cry: Glad we're through the 90+ degree weather, but I was shocked at the quote from the dealer to fix my climatronic. System checks out ok, blows cold air, just no air flow because the air box is blocked by the failure of the servo motor central air flap... They have to take out the whole...

    Hi there, I have recently retrofitted a B3 Passat Climatronic (OFF version - not ECON) into a Vw Corrado. However, there's always something that has to go wrong... In this case, what isn't working correctly, is the air recirculation. In my climatronic setup, I haven't used any A.C. related...

    Has anyone had to replace to motor that runs the recirculation flapper. I think I am missing a part that connects the black control arm to the actualtor dial. I can see the dial turning but it seems that the arms needs to connect somehow. Please help me with this frustrating fix.

    the recirculation flap at the intake duct behind the glove bix of my 99 passat continues to open and close every few seconds, causing a swooshing sound as the air is redirected, also causing the fan to cycle up and down. I have tried different heat/ cool combination on the manual controls and...

    how do you search for this? When the recirculation button is illuminated, is the air being recirculated or is outside air being drawn in to the cabin? I don't have the book with me and I need to settle an argument. It would seem logical that it's the recirculation button and therefore when...

    Hi all, I need some help, with photos if you can on how the recirculation flap looks in both the open and closed position. Reason is, I bought my car used and when I replaced the pollen filter today, I saw that there was a cable tie that was holding the flap in a half open position. No wonder I...

    I have a '99 B5 and I am going to install my Forge diverter valve after church today. I went to read the procedure in my Chilton, to see if there would be any surprises (it looked fairly straight forward). I could not locate anything called a diverter valve, only "Boost pressure recirculation...
