Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Interior finish The finish on the glove compartment door and various other parts is dissolving before my eyes. This is not just wear and tear but a chemical disintegration. What is going on here? Have you had problems of this nature before? The car was made in Mexico. Please help since I am about to buy out my lease.

This is normal, especially the velvet-like black coating on the interior door pulls.

1978 dodge Minnie winnie with a 440. Glove compartment fuse panel?? Nomenclature is absent. Any help or where I can look will be appreciated thank you


Well look at the fuses and see if any are blown. First guess is the black wire coming out of the box is ran from the bad part. goes to the hot side of the fuse missing. Looks like they ran the wire to the bottom tabs. Because the part was shorting out, the tabs were taking the wear and tear. Best is to follow the black wire to where it goes.

Problem with dual zone heating only one side i check control thermost botton is ok


Sounds like the blend door actuator. It separates the driver and passenger side from getting air on the AZC system. Here are some instructions on replacing it:
The passenger side blend door actuator is used on all models equipped with Automatic Zone Control (AZC). This actuator is located on the front of the HVAC housing to the right of the floor panel transmission tunnel and cannot be removed from the passenger compartment without instrument panel or HVAC housing removal.

NOTE: This procedure is for AZC Systems (Passenger side only).

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the glove box door. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim
  3. Remove the lower I/P glove box door surround panel.
  4. Remove the dash assembly. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Remove the HVAC assembly. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  6. Unplug the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator.
  7. Remove the 2 screws that secure the blend door actuator to the HVAC housing.
  8. Remove the blend door actuator from the HVAC housing.
INSTALLATION - AZC (Passenger side only)


  1. In stall the blend door actuator on the HVAC housing and tighten the two mounting screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.).
  2. Plug in the wire harness connector to the blend door actuator.
  3. In stall the HVAC unit into the vehicle. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  4. Install the instrument panel assembly into the vehicle. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Evacuate the HVAC system.
  6. Recharge the HVAC system.
  7. Connect and the battery negative cable.
Hope it helps! If you need more, just send me an email at familyguy77351 at yah I wil be glad to finish helping you with more detail.

Where is the location of the heater blower motor on a 1994 saturn sl1? Do I have to tear the dash out?


No need to tear the dash out. The blower is located above the passenger's feet, below the glove compartment. You access it from underneath. Three small black bolts hold it on and there is a two wire electrical connector on the bottom that must be removed. The motor drops down with the fan blade attached. Should take about 5 or 10 minutes to remove.

I have a '93 SL2 and the interior is the same as an SL1 or 2 from '92, '93, '94 and maybe even a '95.

What fuse is it you're looking for? There should be a fuse box in one of the following locations: 1. left side of steering wheel just about the e-brake (foot activated/hand release lever). 2. Right side of the steering wheel, to the left and below the stereo/heater console. 3. In the glove compartment, on the left side. There will be a little door. 4. Under the hood, usually just behind the batter (above the shock bold on the wheel-well) is a black fuse/relay box. There you will find fuses and relays - NOTE: do not remove fuses and relays while engine is running, or while batter is connected. ALWAYS disconnect the battery before servicing any electrical equipment or compnents. Fuses and Relays can be tested. Your local auto part store sells fuses, relays and fuse pullers and testers, or they may be able to test them for you.NOTE: while a fuse may LOOK good to the naked eye, sometimes it's the part you can't see that is bad. Fuses wear out after time from the flow of electricity going through them. Sometimes it's best to replace all the fuses to ensure they are all good.
