    When I have the heaters on hi and engine warmed to 90 they blow really hot air which is fine, but soon as I stop in traffic or at lights the heater blows cool air or barely warm. What's causing this?

    its probably the cold winter air causing it!!

    I'm guessing its a TDI? they run cooler and cool down quicker

    Weak thermostat, air in the system, weak water pump, or just generally cold outside.....

    Try placing a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator and see if that makes any difference.....BUT KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR TEMP GAUGE IF YOU DO THIS.

    It's a 1.8t. Why would cold affect it? Engine hot then hot air? Never had issue with mk4 golf 1.8t.

    How easy is it to change thermostat on these b6s?
