The blower on a Volkswagen Golf III is referred to by Volkswagen as a Fresh Air Blower, and it is the fan that pushes the air conditioning or heated air through the air vents to cool or heat the cabin. When this blower goes out, you won't have any air circulating through the vents, and therefore, no hot or cold air. To fix the problem, you have to remove the blower so that you can replace it with a new one.
