2001 Volkswagen Passat 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 62,000 miles
About March of 2007, I heard some noices coming from the blower in the dashboard. It sounded like clicking noices; maybe like the fans of an impeller or a motor lstarting to lock up. The noise eventually went away and coincidenty it seemed that it was only blowing cooler air. The car has the automatic controls; I beleive it is called Climatronic. Spring and summer came and the A/C set on Auto worked fine. Winter came again and with relatively mild temperatures, it appeared the heating was OK. When it got really cold, it takes a long time for the temperature guage to go to the middle of the dial if at all and it takes at least 20-30 minutes to get warm air (not hot) to come through.
Any help will be appreciated
When I first mentioned it to my mechanic he said it may be the blender door and it would cost $1,000 to fix. I am reluctant to bring it to my VW since I have been dissatisfied with them.
