    I had real problems and spent a lot of time looking into why I was getting no heat at all. After lots of investigation and trying different things, I bit the bullet and looked at replacing the matrix. The Haynes manual procedure looked a knightmare, I removed it in 20 mins without disturbing any major component or removing the aircon evaporator.

    The hardest part was refitting it and cleaning it out using the original seals and clips but it has been fine for three weeks now and the heat is brilliant.


    Hope it helps someone...

    There is only one way to do it and use a carpet vac to remove the coolant or oil extracter

    This is really good news, what i can't work out is why the vw ******** want £500 + to take all the dash out when it just pops out in to the drivers side foot well, are they just blatantly ripping people off or just not worked out the quick way?

    I was about to buy a tdi sport estate but the windows steamed up and i could smell coolant in the car and when i started looking about for heater matrix replacement i blew the car out, i might just have to take a punt on it now, I'm fairly competent mechanics wise (did the job for 15 years before my current role) so this should be a straight forward job. Similar to my 92 pontiac firebird by the looks of it.

    Can you get it out with a manual without taking the clutch pedal out?

    I guess so, you'll have to take the shrouding off and see if it will come out - only a 10 min job.

    I'm amazed that VWAudi charge so much, I'll do it for half the price!!
