Hi, I've been searching around for ages for an answer but still no luck so thought I would start a thread.
The heater on my 2002 1.9TDi A4 doesn't work when the weather is really cold, then just starts to work after driving for a while. I have been advised to replace the fan brushes but after removing my fan heater motor I dont think it has brushes on it and the advice has been based on the B5 model. Does this sound correct?
I've also read that I should check the heater element for the coolant system but I'm not sure what I'm looking for exactly.
Does anyone have any other ideas? I'm guessing that the fan motor is ok as it seems to work when the temperature is okay.
I'm no mechanic, but dont mind having a go if it is something relatively easy and if it avoids a hefty garage bill then all the better.
