    My car has been recalled with this heating element issue 3 months ago. Before temperatures dropped below +10C I did not pay attention to engine temperature because it was always ok.

    No, when temps. dropped below +10C I noticed that my car hardly heats up (reaches 70C after 20min of driving incl. motorway) and it drops the temperature on traffic lights or slow city drive (30mph). When I get to work after 40 min. driving I am still at 70C on the scale.

    I heard about the issues with thermostat (VW OE-03L 121 111 AD & VW OE-03L 121 111 N) and that it could cause similar issues.

    Do you think it could be thermostat or the issue with suppl. heating element that Audi replaced 3 months ago ?


    Thank you in advance for any information

    Every diesel I've owned so far has had thermostat issues at some point. If you do replace make sure you buy genuine OEM replacements.

    Thanks. That makes sense and is the cheapest thing to start with. Which one would you recommend ? I have plenty of options but apart of Hella and FACET I do not know these companies:

    Mahle (£22.59)
    Gates (£21.81)
    Behr (£23.37)
    Colorstat (£24.37)
    EPS (£24.93)
    Metzger (£28.05)
    Hella (£31.39)
    KW Electric (£33.32)
    Meat&Doria (£35.85)
    FACET (£35)
    Triscan (£35.25)

    I'd be getting on to Audi parts dept to see how much they quote quite often they aren't too bad on prices. Not sure what brand will be on now but you could get the part number off it?
