Sorry guys, yet another AC thread.
However, I HAVE read through the others and can't seem to find the same symptoms.

This is a 2.0 2001 GLS

When I turn on the AC, both fans do kick on from the radiator, and I can even watch the RPMs rhythmically pull until the AC is off but no cold air at all.

I've checked fuses in the door panel, above the battery, I've jumped the pins on the plug from the radiator to make sure both fans are working, and I'm lost.

When I check the pressure on the low side, it shows about 35 and never changes whether the AC is on or not.
I've been thinking of taking it to European specialist in the middle Tennessee area, but just wanted to know if any of you had a better idea first.

Did you find this thread?

http://newbeetle.org/forums/2-0-liter-gas/55955-c-compressor-replacement.html

I posted some troubleshooting steps.

You didn't mention the high pressure test, or whether you had the system charged with refrigerant.

35psi on the low pressure side is within the correct range, but I'm not certain if you tested it under the specified conditions.
No, I haven't. Thank you. I have more to read and learn. :cool:
And I'm not entirely certain if I checked it under the right conditions either. I just hooked up the recharge kit guage thinking that I could add more, but decided not to just yet.
Is it possible to have pressure and no coolant?

I'll second on what Janitz said,

You really need to know what your pressures are both high and low with the system running. It could be a number of things from the easy being low coolant to the more difficult being the expansion valve or the compressor.

What part of Middle Tennessee are you in?

Just south of Nashville, closer to Chapel Hill, TN
And thanks. I'm lacking the tools to properly check the high pressure side, so it maybe better to have a trained professional look at it before I break something.
