My wife's climate control heater blows lukewarm air continuously on all settings around the dial until it gets to full on and then it makes the car hot fairly quickly, giving two settings, too cold or too hot . On my Passat I can feel the difference when I alter it by 1 degree, does anyone have a wiring diagram or know how I can get to the thermostat / thermistor to test it? Ta in advance, Craig

sounds like the problem is the Air mixing damper control motor
as it says it contols the mixing of hot and cold air to give the required temp
the bad news is It says for RHD vehicles you need to remove the floor & side cover consoles plus the clutch pedal assembly to access the part

Is there a guide anywhere for this? Might try and do it basically, thanks.

if you join the site with a paid membership then you can download a good sevice manual from the paid section which covers your model If you have some basic mechanical knowledge then it will help you as it gives resistance values for checking this type of part and how to access it which on RHD drive vehicles looks quite complicated when you see it written down as it says you need to remove the clutch pedal assembly

Hi,

Just had to fix the same problem (unresponsive temperature control) on our 2006 Colt DiD. I found the issue was an accumulation of fluff covering the cabin air temperature sensor. The sensor is located behind the facia covering the heating controls. Once cleaned with a cotton bud, heat was, again, available.

Further to my earlier post:

Using a diagnostic adaptor and Torque App discovered the engine was only reaching 71 deg Celsius and so I think the coolant thermostat might be seized open.

I've found the thermostat housing but it seems impossible to gain sufficient access to remove the stat. It's located behind the block, above the oil cooler and below the inlet manifold. Lying on the floor below the car there are too many obstructions preventing adequate access.

I speculate that the most efficient way to change the stat is to drop the entire front subframe complete with: suspension, transaxle and engine.

Does anyone have experience of thermostat replacement? If so, can you tell me how it was done?

Is there a way to un-seize the stat, with out removing it, and get it working again?

Grateful for any help

Toast

You have gotta love the "mini ELM327 bluetooth" and Torque app. I use it everyday.
