    Hi everyone... I'm about to have my expansion valve and drier changed on my 2002 1.8T Beetle. Neither of the parts came with any O-Rings. I have been told (and researched) that I should change all of the O-Rings associated with the expansion valve and drier. I can't find the part numbers...

    Looking for some advice. I just replaced the Compressor, Dryer and expansion valve. I used a rebuilt compressor. I put everything together (4.5 oz of PAG oil in compressor) and then drew a vacuum on the system for 30 minutes. I let it sit for about an hour to make sure that there were no...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I started to notice my beetle acting strange a few days ago. When I was leaving for work in the morning, I noticed that the INSIDE of my windsheild was very foggy from condensation.

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Recently got my '99 Beetle with the air not working and decided I could fix it myself. We were told by a local mechanic that the lines had no pressure and he would recharge the system for around $150. I figured if it was a simple recharge, I could do that myself and save a few bucks. I...
  14. 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...

    Hi all, I've been doing some work on my girlfriend's 2000 beetle 2.0, and an interesting issue has come up that I can't find an answer to in search. First, I'll preface by saying that the issue may (or may not) be related to the fact that the AC no longer blows cold air as of a couple weeks...

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I have a 2000 Beetle with the 2.0. When I press the recirculation button for the AC, the air drops almost to zero cooling and little if any flow from the vents. Sounds like a vacuum hose problem. Any suggestions?
