My daughter's car did the same thing. On the highway it was OK but in town, every time she stopped at a light the temperature went up. It was a bad fan. Best of Luck

Testimonial: "Thanks, I have an aircon in the car normally when you turn the aircon on the fan should turn but I had to give it a push before it turned."

SOURCE: How many miles will last
VW say to inspect the belt every 60,000miles or every 6 years, whichever is soonest.
they do not actually say to change the belt at this time, but due to the work involved in just checking it and as the belt is made from rubber compounds which deteriorate over time, it is normal accepted practice to change the belt at this interval rather than risk belt failure.
belt failure on this engine WILL cause damage to the head and the valves, normally resulting in replacement of at least the head and valves, with the possibility of piston and cylinder damage as well.
as a 2004, yours would be due at least an inspection as it is over 6 years old.
normal practice would be to change the belt, and the tensioner, and usually the water pump for peace of mind as the water pump is only accessable when the timing belt is removed anyway.
i do not know where you are so cannot give an estimate on price, but it will be worth asking the dealer as well as one or two independent garages for prices.

SOURCE: The fuel filler cover on
This will often work to free stuck latches but once open, use a good penetrating lubricant (not WD-40; it evaporates) to soak any moving parts. Have someone operate the cable pull (or solenoid button) while you thump soundly on the release side of the cover with the heel of your hand. This works most of the time.
