I've had the same problem with my 52 plate A4 1.9tdi. Had the problem since I bought it. No air from the demister and when I turn the ignition off it sounds like a vent valve is opening and closing continusley, this continues for about five mins then stops. Did what other members did, removed the glove box and tested all the valve opening motors by putting on the front, bottom them windscreen demisters. The motor connected to the green linkage arm (demister) didn't move at all while the other two did. Took the motor off, opened it up via 3 or 4 plastic clips and doused it in electrical contact cleaner and the moving plastic parts in silicone spray. 'Tapped' the silver motor a few times with a screwdriver, waited for it to dry and re-assembled. The demister sprang into life when I reconnected to the green plastic arm. I also sprayed all 3 linkages with silicon spray and I can hardly hear any of the movement any more and the valve opening/closing noise when I turn the engine off is gone too. All in all it took about two hours
