Compressor HVAC: Service and Repair
‹› Flush the refrigerant circuit with R134a refrigerant under the following conditions:
‹› In the event of dirt or other contamination in the refrigerant circuit.
‹› If vacuum reading is not maintained on evacuating a leak-free refrigerant circuit (pressure build-up due to moisture in refrigerant circuit).
‹› If refrigerant circuit has been left open for longer than normal (e.g. following an accident).
‹› If pressure and temperature measurements in the refrigerant circuit indicate the likelihood of moisture
‹› In the event of doubt about the amount of refrigerant oil in the circuit.
‹› The A/C compressor had to be replaced on account of internal damage (e.g. noise or no output).
Special tools, testers and auxiliary items required
‹› Torque wrench (V.A.G 1331/) (5 to 50 Nm)
‹› A/C service station (VAS 6007A)
‹› Depending on the engine installed, remove the charge air hose.
Extract refrigerant e.g. using A/C service station (VAS 6007A), only then open the refrigerant circuit. Observe notes. Refer to => [ Refrigerant
Circuit Components ] See: Service and Repair/Removal and Replacement/Refrigerant Circuit Components.
