2006 VW Jetta TDI no heat, no air , blower works.


Sounds like a problem with either the vacuum system or electronic system of the controller that controls which flaps are open. These flaps direct the air to the window or floor or dash etc.

this indicates a fault in the drive motor for the louvres. There is a small electrical motor that works though a set of plastic gears to control a plastic arm
I suggest that you talk with the parts department for availability of the part and then get the carrier technician to fit it
If it is under 5 years old it should be covered by warranty.

What diverts air to defrost. Air comes out vents and floor. ac works and heat , but won't go up to dash vents. The flaps are working.


You just THINK the flaps are working, but apparently the top vent is not. These multiple flaps are controlled by vacuum and you have a line off to that particular flap. This means the flap won't open and the vacuum leak, whether you can hear it or not, is making you lose MPG also, though slight. The vacuum line could be cracked or disconnected from the flap or at the vacuum block on the back of the lever unit.

How do i dismantle the dashboard


Presuming your car is fitted with the automatic heating/cooling system.
There is only one fan controls the heating/cooling system the distribution from this to the various vents is controlled by a series of electronic flaps which open or close dependent on the temperature selected at the control unit.
If the motor is running and the drivers side is receiving cooling it may be a problem with the control unit or a flap has stuck open.
Replace the control unit first as the flaps are a citroen job.
Control unit is the bit with the temperature displays etc.

Check the blend door cable for proper attachment to the control panel and to the blend door. Try opening the door manually to see the you can get hot air out. If not, the door may be broken inside the heater box. If yes, correct/adjust the cable attachment for proper operation.

BUMPING NOISE UNDER DASH


Most of the time this noise is heard when a temperature actuator has gone bad, you can check this by changing temperatures and noting if the noise changes in sound. If so then replaced the actuator. If no change is noted, then open and lower the glove box and while changing from a/c to max a/c, check that the recirculation door is moving into place and not flapping. if flapping, the recirculation door is broken and will need replacement.

Isolated hard starting


It sounds like your carburetor is flooding, check to see if the choke is set too tight.
to do this, when the engine is cold, remove the air cleaner assembly, push the gas pedal one time to the floor. in the carburetor throat is a flap, this flap closes as engine cools so the engine receives more fuel for cold weather starts, the flap is at the top of the carb. this flap should have about a 1/8" gap between the throat wall and the flap when it is fully closed, if if is completly closed it will give the engine to much fuel and cause it to flood. if you need to adjust just follow the linkage that the flap is attached to, and it will lead you to the choke housing, this is where you can adjust it.
once this is done start the engine and let it warm up, as it warms up this choke flap should open completly up in a vertical position.
if it doesnt, then you probably have lost power to the choke housing or your heat tube that comes from the exhaust manifold to the choke housing is bent, off or missing. most likely yours will be electric.
i hope this helps, good luck
