Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
Was driving along and the recirculator stopped. I still get cool air on the regular air conditioner setting, and all four of the fan settings work. However, when I switch on the recirculator (which is needed right now as it is 109 in Oklahoma), I get very little air and the fan does not help.
SOURCE: air recirculation door
a new motor would take care of that , cause the sensing switch(potentiometer) is in the motor assy.. so if the motor runs past the desired position then the switch is bad in the motor pack. if the swicth on the dash was bad then the motor wouldn't move because it thinks it is in the right position and no action is required. i just hope the splines are not stripped on the recerc. door from extended malfunction. - good luck.

it shold be under the hood on the fuse box, but the problem could be the low pressure switch you can get a ship gage from the auto parts and see if is low on freon the car take R134 and you can buy it in put it in your selfit shoul run for 20 or 25 dollars,

The fan speed resistor is the problem........when you are on full speed the current bypasses the resistor and this is what gives you the fastest speed from the fan motor.......on 1, 2, or 3 speed setting, it is directed through the fans speed resistor circuit
It is located in the air box behind the glovebox on the interior of the car passenger side
