    Mk4 golf climatronic center vent air temp sensor

    Hello everyone, I've finally realised what all the rage is with Golfs .
    Mine has more than a few problems but for now let's start easy, I got the aircon regassed and the guy says it is working but it is throwing a fault about the center vent air temp sensor. I've got a replacement one handy but I don't feel like pulling out the entire dash to find where it goes.

    Can anyone tell me where it is and what I'll need to remove to get to it. Sofar I've got the glovebox out.

    Cheers for the help!

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

    Your car spec says 0.

    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.

    Hey, well let's not get too attached to this particular golf, it's been amazing it's a MK4 V6 2.8 4 Motion but it's got bearing in its oil and the rear diff is making a huge racket.

    The guy who regassed the air-conditioning did give me a printout of the VCDS and by all accounts it's going to be the sensor in there causing it to shut off its the only recurring fault.

    I'm told changing the diff is going to suck, I'm going to do it because it is that loud and for some fun also I really don't want to let it die - fantastic car for someone who likes big V8s.

    I posted that before I'd confirmed it was the diff, so I'm not even sure I'm going to bother with the sensor, I only really need it to last another 12 months.

    Maybe move this to introductions?

    They are THE best Golf 4 being easier to look after than the R32 where some specific spares (such as exact OE rear springs) are hard to find. We imported a number of them between 99 and 01 when VAG UK were taking the mick asking 22k for a stripped out version we could sell for 18k but absolutely loaded and with every single box ticked; and we still care for one of these which was the subject of a feature about importing (a batch of three) cars in a 2000 copy of VW Motoring magazine. It will be a frustrating and expensive labour of love but one day, these will be a collector car nearly as desirable as the R32...... but not quite!

    Unfortunately I don't think I have enough love to fix the bearings. I don't have the time and I'm certainly not paying someone. It also needs a timing chain (although not urgently I don't think), if I fix the crank I could do timing chain as well but again, needs to be driven and no time to deal with it.

    For what it's worth, found it.

    The sensor I'm after sits on the side of the center vent towards the bottom. Can be accessed under from the steering wheel, only need to remove one piece of trim, stick your head against the clutch pedal, should be able to find it.
