Best Answer

Likely, as in most VW's, the recirculation air door is stuck in the 'closed' position. This can be alleviated by (a) replacing the recirculation damper vacuum motor, (b) locking the recirculation door in the 'open' position (illegal, but effective), or (c) doing nothing. Any repuable auto A/C shop should be able to locate and correct this problem. the Recirc door is located on the passenger side of the lower dash, behind (sort-of) the glove box. Good luck.

An easy way to make water cold is to put it in the refrigerator. If this is not possible, adding colder water would make water colder.
