    Anyone able to help? I need a new aircon compressor fitted near the gloucester area. I am willing to travel a little bit. Just thought someone might be able to help on here before i shell out £650 for a new one fitted.

    Thanks.

    Just checked, Soz mate Carls in Kent, opposite side to you.
    You'll find someone on here who can give you a hand though, plenty scattered about. Get your Beer tokens ready!

    Apparently you need to fit a new drier too and also will need flushing and regassing.

    So the belt that drives this and the alternator on the TDI is not also the timing belt then? How do you empty the system safely? Mine was regassed before they diagnosed the pump wasn't working!

    This is the auxillary drive belt on the 1.9. You need a special machine to suck the old gas out and repressurise with with new.

    Is there a safe way of removing the air con gas prior to taking the pump out? Mine was repressurised just before pump failed!!!
