Question about 2010 Volkswagen Touareg

1 Answer

I have had my VW touareg in for service 3 times in the last 5 months for heating problems. First time they said it was the blend door motor and they "fixed" it. Then 2nd time it was that the blend door motor was not seated correctly, then the 3rd time it was the flap motor and that just last week (12/20/2010). Now just tonight (12/29/2010) no heat again on the passenger side. I live in AK and it is pretty cold!!!

Where is the heater blend door actuator on 2007 Suzuki xl7? I am getting cold air when the heat is on


front or rear, the rear is a complex option.
in the heater box.
the 2007 FSM covers this best, all the tests and all steps to service.
10 tests there,
blend door, is that the recirc door? or temperature.
step 5 shows recir, checks.

the 07 automatic HVAC options, has 5 motors,
2 motors in rear, heat and mode
3 in the front, mode, Circ, and temp.

if the doors mess up, its caused by the door (damper jam)
motor jam, or controls ( no need to mention wires or connectors, as that is always true, for electrics)
its a complex system very much like on new honda's
id not attempt to work on it with out the FSM
or a subscription to alldata.com or mitchels.

its not a simple cable system like the old Suzukis/ at all.

2002 vw polo 1.4 only blows cold air (fan works fine on all speeds)


In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure

Also try disconnecting the battery negative cable a few times for 5 minutes to see if the systems are just out of sync.

P0411 is what is says is my problem with my 1997 Ford Taurus When my heater is on it makes a clicking noise. What could is the most likely problem and how can i fix it?


i belive that the dtc that you have is not related to the clicking noise at all. apparently p0411 is concerning the secondary air injection. the clicking noise however would be a stuck or broken blend door or blend door motor. usualy the hvac system utilizes 3/4 of these blend door motors. to further diagnose this start your heater with the heat on full and fans at the normal face vents and move the vent selector from that inital position to the last position and if the clicking quits at any point then it would be that blend door motor. if that doesnt work then try to slowly move the heat selector from full heat to full cold, same deal. and if still at that point its making noise see if it goes away by selecting recirculate to fresh air....

Hi, this is a problem with the blend motors, in the dashboard, there is a recall at vw for the heater flaps making a noise and this may also cure your problem, give them a call.
