Heat / AC question

514 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  CoolWhiteJetta1.8T
Ever since I got my 01 jetta, I noticed that even when I had the fan/vent turned off, hot or cold air (depending on the temp setting) would still come through the vents. I find it very annoying since I obviously don't want heat when I have the switch in the off position. I also noticed that when I hit the recirculate air button, the air stops coming through the main vents. Is this normal?

yup normaly for all cars without automatic climate control.
They do that to get air flow into the cabin b/c you'll build up alot of mosture on the inside if you don't have fresh air coming in which leads to fogging issues . . .
If you don't want air hit the re-circulation button b/c it blocks off the outside air intake.
