    I have a fault code on VCDS and I can't seem to find where the problem lies.

    My A/C and Heating work perfectly so I am not sure what this fault refers to.

    Below is a copy of the code.

    Address 08: Auto HVAC Labels: 8P0-820-043.lbl
    Part No SW: 8P0 820 043 B HW: 8P0 820 043 B
    Component: KlimavollautomatH11 0130
    Shop #: WSC 00000 000 00000
    VCID: 2B51039FF395

    1 Fault Found:
    00716 - Air recirculation Flap Positioning Motor (V113)
    003 - Mechanical Failure
    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 01100011
    Fault Priority: 3
    Fault Frequency: 47
    Reset counter: 105
    Mileage: 186876 km
    Time Indication: 0
    Date: 2012.07.16
    Time: 15:46:39

    Freeze Frame:
    Voltage: 11.90 V
    Temperature: 21.5∞C
    (no units): 208.0
    (no units): 169.0
    Temperature: 14.5∞C

    Any help would be much appreciated as when I clear the code it returns instantly.

    Hopefully I'm not stating the obvious, but this flap is what changes between recirculating the air in the cabin and drawing in fresh air from outside. You will still get hot and cold air as requested, you just won't be able to change the source. Replacing this motor is most likely going to require pulling the dash out.

    There is also an adaptation you can run in Vag-com, but I don't think it is going to help in this situation.
