Volkswagen HVAC Parts
Volkswagen is the principal automaker in Germany, as well as the third in the entire market. The company also ranks third in putting aside the most capital out of all of their competitors toward the research and development of new cars. They also have an ample line with high quality products, and more specifically, with their HVAC parts and components. Your Volkswagen 's heater core is a small radiator that has antifreeze flowing through it. The fan for this heater and the defroster blows through the hot heater core to defrost your VW’s windshield and heat the air on the interior of your vehicle. There are many aspects that can decrease the effectiveness of your Volkswagen’s heating. Your heater core has some noticeable symptoms, as well. One of the first things FCP recommends doing is to inspect for leakage. Due to where your heater core is positioned, beneath your dashboard, a leaky core will highlight two things that point to core leaks. Antifreeze leaking onto your passenger's floor is the first, but make sure the leak is not from your windshield. The second symptom is an oily mist on your Volkswagen’s windshield, which shows up when your defroster is on. As your heater continues to leak, the defroster's fan is blowing this coolant up and onto the windshield. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s HVAC parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are available for any support you need.

Next, find your Volkswagen’s heater hoses by opening your hood and finding two black hoses that run from the top of your engine towards your passenger area. Inspect for any clogs or blockages. Once your Volkswagen has hit its operating temperature and your heat is on, the coolant should gush through the heater core. Inspect the heater hoses to see if there is a steady stream of hot fluid through the core. If one hose is warm and the other is cool, this is a result of your Volkswagen’s heater core being blocked up. If both are warm, this does not mean that the core is not blocked, but that there is flow through your heater. Now, get a view of your heater core. Because exposing your heater core is such a huge job, it is smart to be certain that your VW’s core is the issue. In the case of a supposed clogged heater, the only way to be certain is to take apart your heater box and inspect the core temperature.
