    Yep, your heater core is either full of **** or on it's way out. I had the same problem but couldn't get both tubes off the heater core so ended up flushing the whole coolant system and refilling. It worked. Refilled with Audi G12++ bottles from ebay.

    That's what I had. It may be you have some air trapped in the system.

    If you set the air to different directions to say feet, face, screen, does it then blow hot in any of those positions, wonder if its a flap issue, do a basic setting to reset the flaps, but strange blows hot then cold afterwards.
