2007 VW Passat 2.0
I found the passenger side front floor mat extremely wet. The entire mat up to about6"
I found it right after leaving a hand car wash site.right after pulling away. I sped away to
merge onto a fast moving highway. I then tried to turn the fan moter on. On
click1,nothing, click 2 nothing, click 3 nothing,finaly on click # 4 the blower came on
very strong. Day 2 same results.1,2,3,nothing click 4 full blast any help would be
greatly appreciated. Thankyou in advance, Mike D
It is water (from the carwash) got into the intake because your setting was NOT on recirc...the drains on the cowl are plugged and the water's got no where to go except into the vehicle when you switch to "fresh air"~ use a shop vac to get the water outta there, then use a small wire do dislodge the blockers of the cowl vents~
thank you...have shined a little light on this pathetic, lonely man~
What is a cowel? Please explain, thank you for all your time, sincerely Mike D
What is a cowl, What is it's job, and where is it located? Thanks for putting up with me. You guys are all blessed, and so am I to have found you. Thank you again, Mike D , Secaucus, NJ
You are far from pathetic,Thanks for your help judge!
easy there md~ I cannot afford to judge...tho my name is the judge..but I found a picture....who can say what is pathetic....the fact that this is not hurricane proof is pathetic~...here's a chrome cowl (located right in front of the windshield...they used to have "flaps" on them before air-conditioning even existed~
Good job on the pic Judge. Some of those cowl drains can be a real bear to find let alone clean out, sometimes you have to remove the inner plastic fenders to get way down low into the cowl drains.
Any pictures of the cowl on a 2007 VW passat2.0T and how to open it to look in? Thank you all Mile D.
