HI The A/C in my 2001 Beetle just slowly went out. I took it to a shop today and the estimate was $1,400! The tech said my clutch on the compressor was going out so I needed to replace the compressor, condenser and various smaller components in the system. What i am wondering is if this is common and sounds correct? I just moved to the Phoenix area so I do not know which shops are on the up and up. I also know nothing about the A/C system so I wouldn't know how to tell if the estimate is correct.
