Re: Climate Control Problem

Hi Peter:

First, don't blame Audi entirely, the automatic climate control
system is really a General Motors unit, which Audi used
just for the US market... guess we're too lazy to use the 
manual system.

As a short term solution, try using the "Economy" setting
instead of "auto" for heating your car. It would be 
interesting to see if you get the same problem.
Note that in the winter, I just use "economy" or "defrost",
and in the summer, I just use "auto" for the A/C.

I have a problem with the climate control on my
1990 200. It does not always modulate the temperature
properly, particularly on long trips. When the 
setting is on Auto, hot air comes out the dash
vents(as well as elsewhere) and keeps making the car hotter
and hotter. If I put it into Bi-Level, air does
not seem to come out the dash vents. My guess
is that the vacuum motors moving flaps in the
heater are malfunctioning.

I have the workshop manual and it has an impressive
debugging sequence, which I have not had time to
go through yet.

Anyone have experience or thoughts on where to look?
Anyone know where to observe the operation of the
flaps as pictured in the manual? Are they under the
dash or on the firewall? The manual forgot to tell
where to look (at least I could not find it).

Thanks in advance.
