2000VW Passat with leak on floor behind driver seat, now no heat or heated drivers seat!
I bought my 2000 VW passat and soon after the check engine light came on, although I have taken it to the dealer several times it is still a mystery to why it keeps coming on. But my main problem started last winter when a pretty severe leak on the floor behind the passenger seat, by the time I could get it looked at it was spring and was no longer leaking anymore. Now I realize that I have no heat in the car at all, the fan just blows cold air. Also, now my drivers side heated seat stopped heating. I hope someone can help! Thanx!

Raise car and block securely. Underneath on floor pans directly below seats you will see oval or round rubber grommets.(plugs) Use flat screw driver to pry out. You will see a nut under each. Remove nuts and remove seat. Installation of aftermarket seats may require you to drill new holes and or addition of shims to square up the base of the new seat. Flat washers work well.
The alarm is located behind the back seat on the Drivers side. Up and towards the outside of the car.
Pull the back seat down. Look up where I stated.
You may need to remove or pull back the trim.
You should be able to see it mounted there.
is the floor board on passenger side wet???If yes it's the heater core, which should be accessible by removing the glove box. Did u check the oil, to see if it 's milky??? some times on the vw of any kind, they spring a slow leak on the head gasket which could cause the abnormal starting in the morning. Which then, as the engine warms up causes the gasket to swell up and seal itself untill the engine cools completely off again. Eventually the gasket will completely fail and u'll have to bring it to a shop or get a repair manual to replace the head gasket.
