Heater booster question
I know this should really go in the dedicated section but I thought that by asking the question here I may get an answer from someone who deals with the grown up stuff or has access to such info, so please don't move it unless you really have to. Thanks.
I own a 1999 A 170CDi and I'd like some info about the heater booster please. What I'd like to know is -
Is it Diesel or electric?
How can you tell if it's working? - this seems a silly question but I have nothing for comparison, I have no idea how long these engine take to give warm air if the booster is off or broken. I haven't noticed any difference turning it on but then how much extra heat will it generate?
If it's Diesel does it make a noise, if so what kind? Does it still make a noise even if it doesn't heat up?
Where's the unit in question?
A diagram or picture would be really useful.
Thanks in advance. I really hope someone can help.
