comment 2000 VW Golf heater won't blow hot air
@mac: Thanks! It's hard to tell which noises are new (there are so many to choose from...) but things buttoned back up nicely with only a small handful of orphaned screws.

Can you be more specific? Which cable and which plastic piece?

comment 2000 VW Golf heater won't blow hot air
thanks for these edits and your help! I've ran across several more issues that are taking precedent over this one (a failed window regulator for one - when it rains it pours) so I'll have to check out the flapper valve later.

I haven't had a chance to check that linkage, no. Swinging the selector between hot and cold makes a 'thunk' sound, as it had before, if that means anything. As I understand it the flapper is part of the core assembly and buried deep in the dash - manual inspection might not be feasible. Do you have any suggestions on how to check it? I'll see about pulling the climate knobs out of the dash to inspect that end of things.
