    what air con sensor is this?

    Having a bit of trouble,
    2013-07-21 16.26.15.jpg

    The air con sensor,my one on the left is completly different to the one on the right?
    But putting the part number around keeps bringing up the part on the right,which does not fit

    Here is my old one close up
    2013-07-21 16.28.50.jpg
    The part no on the old reads 8e0 959 126
    But searching just brings me the part i have which dont fit?

    Am i missing something,i did have a few beers last night :-*

    tried to edit. But dont know why there upside down

    So you mean the shiny one in the left of that photo is the one that doesn't fit, as in your photo is upside down?

    If so then I had the exact same shenannigans replacing my high pressure air con sensor. ECP and GSF supply the identical wrong part when provided with my reg (same as the shiny one with long hexagonal body) and are typically helpful (read effing useless) when it comes to trying to sort it out.

    In the end I went to TPS parts in Staverton, Gloucester who were able to provide the correct part (ie the dirty shorter one on the right). I think the only other vendor to guarantee getting it right is Audi themselves, although it's £57+ VAT from them whereas TPS is only about £39 + VAT.

    Hope that's of some help.

    Edit: TPS number is 0845 8125440 and I'm sure they would do postage to you if you asked.

    Phoned tps,one a load on back order!
    So went with audi,told them the situation and gave him the part no on my old unit.
    He was sure it will be the correct part like for like.

    Audi phoned this morning saying my parts in. I asked him to describe it being the long or short version!
    "long barrel then thread"
    Nooooo thats not the part i need,i said its like i need the barrel cut off so its an instand thread,to screw on!

    Hes going to speak to audi technical to find out more about this....?

    That's weird that Audi got it wrong too. Maybe that explains why GSF and ECP were wrong. TPS were definitely right though, topped the AC up at work and it's nice and chilly. How long would it be from TPS?

    Hi mate I just googled that part no and nothing so I changed the first two no's with 8eo and I'm getting loads on the ac sensor but they all seem to have a letter a b or c on the end?

    Hi, I'm having the same problem you had with trying to source the correct sensor. I noticed you went for the 3R0 959 126 in the end which I am lead to believe superseded the 8E0 959 126. Looking at 3R0 959 126 it still looks different to the 8E0 959 126. Can you confirm that this still fits okay?

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Hey Deano

    Have you re-gassed your air-con after replacing the sensor? You shouldn't have lost much gas but maybe it's low now?
    I snapped the thread off of the air-con condenser at the end of last year, all of the gas escaped and I'd left it like that for now. I'm probably going to miss the air-con later this year but it can wait for now!

    I have the condensor available off my 2.5TDi - I imagine they're all the same. It's a pattern part I bought about two years go but it's exactly the same as the oem one that came off. PM me if you're interested in it.
