    Hi there. Ok here I go my a4 b7 avant has just started blowing constant cold air from the drivers side vents even though they are on high So I've been told that it is the flap motor on the drivers side but i cannot find it. Plz help as its getting cold out there now. Thanks.

    there are flaps on both sides, remove glovebox and/or lower trim on the drivers side.
    When you can see the flap motors operate the aircon and see which one is sticking.
    A scan with VCDS and going though basic setting may well reset the motor

    Thanks for that so are the three motors behind the glove box the ones that control the air flow to the drivers side aswel,as all three vents on the drivers side blow cold air

    Sorry for bugging pal but is it just me in the thread you posted for me they refer to the motor under the glove box and I'm to believe mine are on the other side. All the pics on this subject seem to focus on the glove box side.

    the motors on the glovebox side seem to be the ones that fail.
    Check the operation of all motors

    My mechanic just fixed the airing light in mine as well. was a bad connection under the seat. He also reset the diagnostics stuff as well so the light would go out.
