digital heater
« on: October 01, 2012, 08:57:54 pm »
when i switch my heater to screen and/or floor it sounds like the air is being restricted and not much coming out also noticed not any air coming out of the rear floor vent, but blows a gale out of the dash vents!!

Humm, there is a direction flap that's controlled by a motor that can go sticky which is sounds like you may have. Worth running a self check with VCDS if you have it as it will test the motors full range of movement.

Remove the motor and exercise the flap by hand to free it and/or replace the motor if the flaps not sticking.

The flashing display means the HVAC module has registered a fault code which could be related to your flap problem or indeed could be low gas pressure.

I would say that'll depend on where it was when it was disconnected ;)

Personally, I'd plug it in without fitting it. You can then set it to fully down and then once the motors moved, adjust the flap manually and fit it - at least that way you'll know where the flap is and where the motor thinks it is ;)
