I am still dealing with air conditioner problems with my daughter's new beetle and it over 100 degrees outside. I have found two articles that I think are worth sharing with others that are also having air conditioner problems.

(1)No Compressor Operation in Volkswagen New Beetle


(2)http://pics.tdiclub.com/data/517/A4_Air_Conditioning_Troubleshooting_Rev_7.pdf


(3)From my experiences with my daughters beetle, only take your beetle to a certified mechanic that knows Volkswagen New Beetles/Audi's. There are enough unique things about these cars that some mechanics can actually create new problems.

Most of the mechanics that are not familiar with Volkswagen cars do not know about the fuses that control the compressor. You can spend a lot of time trying to figure out why the compressor comes on erratically or will not come on at all and you are getting hot air. The mechanic may conclude that the "compressor is bad" when it is just this fuse box. My fuse box looked good, but when I shook the fuse in the picture, the compressor came on!

Should check here first!

They're a spammer. Reported them twice now.

No clue. They usually have links in their signatures so I guess its to get traffic to those linked sites. All I know is I'm getting fed up with it.
