    AC works only on full power

    Hi guys, the wife's 64 plate VW polo has an issue with the air con. It will only work on full speed, not on any other speeds. We think it's the speed resistor, are these pretty easy to replace and where is the best place to find the part online. TIA

    VW part number 6Q0 959 263 A and from a VW dealer £53, the only after market one I would trust is Behr Hella, Euro Car Parts want £40 for a cheap and nasty one. These get very hot when running on speed 1 and 2 and remember it is this component that has been the cause of many fires in the Vauxhall Zafira.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/ keep this in your favorites/bookmarks for reference. As it will save me checking ETKA.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
