hi Fabphil

The heaters for these classic cars are never very effective. But here is a video that will give you some idea of how they work. From that point you can figure out if you have some sort of blockage. Some VWs have had their heater boxes removed so they have no heat. That's when having a heated seat cover comes in handy. (matter of fact, probably a good idea either way)

Hope this helps.

Yeah, there should be heater boxes on the exhaust and that's where the heat comes from. Confirm that they're in place and then go from there
