Good question: there should be a sticker on your compressor with a vw and the brand part number on it (use your phone; to get a picture if it).

Otherwise, contact your vw dealer with your in # or lookup on vw's parts site.

www.parts.vw.com

Your might take a video if it; to share the sound with us.

Does the compressor have a clutch; that kicks on?

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.


Here’s a kit for an original oem compressor.
