    UPDATE!!!
    had the car at the garage yesterday, and their 'AC specialist' had a look at it, no need for re-gassing in his opinion and of course the econ light was off whilst he was looking at it, although it has not been off for the best part of the week!!!
    when i mentioned the fault codes and their relation to 'high/low pressure sensor' he proceeded to point out to me where a pressure sensor was located, and on us looking down at it, we both noticed how my fan-belt was rubbing against it and how it had worn a groove into the sensors casing!!!
    so 'very carefully' with a big screwdriver, we managed to bend the AC pipe ever so slightly, but just enough so that the sensors casing is now clear of the fan-belt, and so far so good, i have been driving around since yesterday with the AC on and no econ light!
    so fingers crossed, and thanks again to all the help and advice i have recieved on this matter!
    ps. will keep you guys updated on the situation!!!

    UPDATE!!!

    ok, thats my econ light on permanently now, as soon as the key goes in the ignition!!!
    i am thinking, if its possible, to try and buy the pressure sensor G65 mentioned in the vagcom scan and replace it myself!
    does anyone know where i might be able to purchase one of these sensors?
    im sure it is the one at the front of the engine, slightly to the left, and right behind the radiator.
    very close to the fan-belt!!!

    Anyway Smurfboy, have you tried Audi for the part? I know certain parts they won't sell to any old person but it's worth a try.

    Well if it is the Aircon pressure sensor then you can't do that one yourself, you will need the system degassed first, swap the sensor, a vacume back down and then filled with the required amount of gas and lube.

    Best bet would be to pick one up and then see your local aircon specialist.

    Depending on age they may also suggest that the dryer unit is replaced too.
