    just got a 2.5tdi v6 quattro sport avant and the air con blower seems to have a mind of its own ??? it lights up and you can adjust all the settings but the fan dosent kick in. this has been like this for three weeks. spoke to wak from vagcheck to arange a diagnostic and then it just started working again ?????? should i still bother with a diagnostic or just wait and see if it packs up again

    You need a new blower motor. this happened to my B5, and seems fairly common as cars start to get older. The brushes wear out on the blower which is why it's intermittant. You can remove the unit and extend the springs on the brushes to get a bit more life from it, but ultimately it will fail. New blowers are only around £80-£100 and it's a DIY install. Have a search on ebay, the OEM unit is made by Valeo

    Valeo are French (that's why it's a common faulty part, the only bloody French bit in the whole car).
    Try ebay, they've got loads on there not sure what the B6 part number is though. I'll have a look in the morning.
    £200 is a joke, should be under a ton.

    It was £170.87 + vat =£200.77 so it was more than £200.

    By B6 looks like this, completely different from the B5 8D2 820 021 version.
    I had this very issue on my B5 about 4 years ago and had to stump up £200 for a replacement from Audi 4U, as there just weren't any available elsewhere. Now you can get the B5 units for £80 incl delivery, I guess the demand isn't there yet for the B6 units.

    The £80 ones are the older B5 models as far as I could see, although there's only one digit difference in the part codes, they are very different.
