  1. A/C only works at IDLE...Compressor? Expansion valve?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hi everyone... About a month ago my A/C started to not feel "as cold" as usual on my way home from work in New Orleans. The next day, it seemed to only be slightly cooling, but when I would stop at stop lights it would get colder. I figured it was low on freon, even though the compressor was...
  2. 99 manual, stalls when shifted into neutral but only when the A/C is on

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Any ideas as to what causes this? I think I may need a new battery but the car starts fine and only stalls when the car is both put into neutral AND the A/C is on. When I put the A/C on, the RPMs drop a bit and when I put it into neutral, they just drop out completely. This happens if I...

    How hard of a job is it to put in a new compressor and condenser? It looks hard to get to.

    Hello, proud owner of a 2000 VW Beetle, 2.0, 117,000 miles. I have a undiagnosed problem with my Air Conditioning Unit (AC), undiagnosed meaning that even a mechanic (non-VW) checked it out and could not find a problem: My AC works, it blows cold air. However, when I am driving and I turn the...

    Hi there, A/C and fan blower just stop working the other day. Recirculate button is working! I checked: - fuses (on the top of the battery and inside the car) and they are good. - Fan control module - Blower motor resistor (but not blower motor). Any idea what to check next? Thanks
  8. Still having A/C problems

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Ok, I have spent hours reading through a lot of a/c issue posts. I have even posted on this in the past. Still, it seems that while some issues are similar, none of the suggested remedies are resolving my situation. Main issue: 2000 1.8L a/c clutch will not engage. No power going to...
