Oh. My A/C compressor died. I need a new or refurbished unit along with the dryer, orings and oil. Does anyone know how this compressor works? What's the correct part number for a 1.8TSI compressor? Anyone?
Define die. A/C compressors can indeed die and need replacement, however often it’s just the clutch that actually needs replacement. The clutch can be replaced right on the vehicle without ever opening the a/c system. I have done several after the compressor stopped working and in only one case was the compressor actually dead.
Here is a troubleshooting thread for a/c problems.

VW uses a Sanden compressor on many of their vehicles but you would need to look at your compressor to verify what kind it actually is, take a pic of the sticker on the side of it.
