I have an Audi A3 2.0 FSI 2004. (8P)
Had it since new.
About 5 months back the micro switches that control the temp on the Climate Control stopped working (one way), I can only make the car hotter and its stuck on 25... so not looking forward to the summer, particularly as the passenger side has now done the same!
So a couple of questions for you:
1. Is there anyway to reset the temperature without using the two switches on the front?
2. Has anyone had similar problems with theirs? I know the car is no spring chicken, but I'm struggling to believe I've treated mine particularly badly and it does seem strange that they would both go within 6 months of each other.
3. I took the unit out and found a code - 8P0 820 043 5PR. I checked around and although I've found similar units for sale used (at least from the front they look the same), the code is slightly different. Does anyone know if units with different codes are compatible or do I have to buy a unit with exactly the same code?
I checked with Audi, they want to charge me around £600. Thats more than 10% of what the car is probably worth!
Any help with this greatly appreciated.
