Hi, I'm new to the newbeetle.org forum. Just bought a 2001 beetle for my 16 year old. Having AC issues and have been going through all of the troubleshooting guides I can find on this forum. However, I can't seem to get to the connector on the AC compressor to check the coil resistance. I can get it unplugged, but the radiator hose is in the way of getting inside the connector to check the resistance there. Can anyone tell me of an easy way to check the resistance on the compressor while it is still on the car without having to remove the radiator hose that's right over top of the connector? Has anyone come across this problem before?
