All of our parts are of the highest quality and are designed specifically to fit your exact VW model. For assistance on what part you require, consult our Buyer's guide.
The AC Compressor can be viewed as the heart of the whole system. It's the part that "pumps", and is responsible for delivering that cool refreshing cold air into your cabin. Without it, the air conditioning wouldn't work. One of the most common reasons for failure is leaky seals and inadequate lubrication. Any variation in the temperature coming out from the vents should be checked out, as it probably means there is a problem with the unit, since it stopped working like it used to.
There are a few symptoms to determining whether your VW A/C Compressor is broken. Obviously, a lack of any kind of cold air from the vents is the easiest one to spot out since the atmosphere in the cabin will heat up considerably. Besides a computer telling you that the Volkswagen AC System is malfunctioning, hearing a clicking noise from the front of the car, specifically the engine can also indicate a broken AC. Turning the unit on from time to time if not used often ensure that everything stays lubricated, as well as keeping the seals from drying up, making everything run smoothly when you do need it.
Parking in the shade when possible means the car will work less to achieve the desired temperature, and will reduce the stress on your Volkswagen Air Conditioning, meaning all the various components will last longer subsequently. Another great way to expand the lifespan of the AC unit is to simply vent the hot air built up inside the car by driving with the windows open for a little while, and only then turning the AC on.
