It sounds like the switch is broken, they often do this and will work on only 4 or 3. not worth messing about with to be honest I would just get another from a scrap yard.

Hope that helps

Two things come to mind right off. The switch is bad or the blower motor resistor could be bad. Depending on if you have a solid state resistor or a push button speed control there are unfortunatly multiple and invasive test procedures to find out. If a rotary speed control then getting one from a salvage or parts store would be my first step. The resistor location I am not certain of but usually is mounted on the blower motor housing or plenum. Some are built into the switch. Check with your auto parts store and they might can pull it off the shelf and look. Either that or call the Volkswagon dealer parts dept. and ask them if the resistor is intergrated into the switch or not.

Heater Blower fault for Polo

this sound like the fan motor itself. remove the blower fan from the car(its on the passenger side below the glove compartment) and bench test it to see if its straining or maybe something jamming it. not uncommon to get a bunch of leaves in there or i have seen nests once or twice.

How to remove the heater core from a VW GolfMK3

there are alot of hidden screws holding the dash in. there are some up across the top of the dash by the windshield and defrost vents. also when you open the doors there are some in there. it is quit a difficult job I really dont recomend doing it yourself but if your not afraid to try and feel confident enough to tackle it good luck. it would be best to have an experienced mechanic do the job but it will cost over three hundred for labor. if you do it yourself go to a parts store that sells haynes repair manuals they cost about twelve dollars and are pretty helpfull.

No glow plug light on my 1997 v/w golf diesel will not start . can not find fuse link

Check and see if there is power at the glow plugs, with the ignition switched on and when the engine is cold.
If there is no power, check in-line fuse which is on the main lead to the glow plugs. Also check heater relay...on main fuse board.
