Hi Chaps, hope you're all well, sorry I don't get as much time on the forums these days.
I have looked in the archive and can't seem to find the info I need all in one place, maybe you guys can help.
There is a chance we might be getting a '95 A4 in on scrappage soon, and if it comes in I will be looking to nick the a/c compressor for my old blue beasty (still going strong, now 76k on the clock)
As yet, nobody can tell me what engine the scrappage car has.
My own climate has been inoperative since I bought the car (belt removed by prev. owner due to an undiagnosed fault). The system is still charged, so it wasn't lack of gas. I don't know whether the fault lies in the compressor or just the clutch.
So what I'm after is knowing which engines used the same a/c compressor as a '98 1.8t. Or, if the compressor is different, which of them still use the same clutch, e.g will the clutch from a 1.9TDi or 2.6 go onto the compressor from a '98 1.8t.
Also, is there any difference in compressor and clutch on cars with climate and straightforward a/c?
Wonder if anyone can shed any light?
