    Heat Issues

    my 1.8t takes along time to heat the cabin up, the temp that should usually take around 5 minutes is more like 30 minutes.

    Also the temp guage on the dials does not get above 50. should normal running temp but up and around the 90 mark ?

    are these two issues linked ?

    If the thermostat is dodgy and the engine not getting up to temperature then it would explain the poor performance of the heater. Alternatively it could be a coolant temp sensor problem and the heating a separate issue.
