If you having a problem with air conditioner or when the left side is blowing cold and the passenger’s side is blowing hot (HVAC temperature inconsistent, you don’t have heat on the driver’s side) probably it’s time to check or replace the V158 or V107 Actuator for Temperature Flap (Air Recirculation Flap Positioning Motor) on VW Passat B6 2006-2010 or Passat B7.
Before you start removing the VW Passat B6 V158, V107 air recirculation flap positioning motor (or any other actuator V158, V107, V70, V113, V71, V425), first disconnect the negative terminal from the car battery. Then…
How do you know that your V158 air recirculation flap positioning motor needs replacement:
– you have to be sure that you don’t have to replace the heater core
– one of your fault code from your VCDS Scan Tool (or any other scan tool) is „01809 – Actuating Motor for Temperature Flap; Left (V159)” or ….V107
– when you turn the heat for both sides ON, on the left side is blowing could and the passenger’s side is blowing hot (HVAC temperature inconsistent, you don’t have heat on the driver’s side)
– you hear strange noises from behind the dashboard or HVAC
This is another proof that you have to replace the V158 Temperature Flap Motor from the VCDS scan tool.
