Question i have seen this question before and i have seen the answer come back as a heater core but curious to know if the climate control would also prevent the temperture to change to blow out hot or cold air.
it looks as though my climate control may be going out and only reaches a high temp of 70 would this be a reason why my heater would feel cold since it wont set any higher say for instance 75-80 to achieve heat?

Cannot say i do offhand but yes your diagnosis is correct thats for sure and to get to anything i think you will need to remove the dash ,not a difficult job just time consuming thats all and remember to refit all the screws back in use a mobile phone to take lots of pics as you take it apart and hope your back is ok for all the bending upside down to do this job
Hi, it sounds like you flow is restricted, probably due to clogging of the heater core. You can try back-flushing the core by removing the heater hoses on the engine side and attaching a garden hose to the lower heater core port using a bit of hose and some clamps. Run the hose to flush out the core. If flow is good, replace the hoses. If not, you may need a new core. Please let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
I have read on an audi forums sitethat sometimes air gets stuck in heater core and can cause the problems you are experiencing. You need to get the coolant bleed. Easiest way would be to go get it flushed by one of those flushing machines. Hope this helps. I found solution at audiforums.com
you have air in the system!! you have to unbolt the filler tank and lift it 5 inch higer first. then loose the right hose on the heater core( this hose have and hole to bleed the system) and then put antifreeze until the antifreeze will go out of the hole then re install the hose to the heater core, then ajust the level correcty
