i have a 97 a4 1.6, my heater has never worked in it ever since i got it.

the climate control and a/c works fine but when i turn the temperature up the hot air fails to come out, i notice a slight temperature change but not enough to warm me up on cold days. ideas anyone?

Warm up the car and turn the heater on a high temp. There are two heater hoses going through the second firewall (near the battery) into the cabin. Feel them for warmth.

you have a blown heater core.. simple as that.. however not simple to replace. it involves tearing apart your entire dash ( read "entire") and replacing it. i know because i did it in about 8 hours..
