    Hello fellow Audi drivers,

    Mine's a 2004 8P of which the condenser is a serious biohazard. I would like to clean it well and have heard about direct access to it, can anyone tell me how? I have Motip airco cleaner and it seems better to flood it directly than to fill the system from the engine bay/polen filter.

    Greetings, Kees.

    The condensor is in the front of the engine bay, attached to the radiator. Do you mean the evaporator, which is behind the dash?

    It's a dash out job to get to the bug ridden matrix.

    Yeah, yeah, I mean the radiotor in the dash allright! My mistake. I heard the is some kind of little hatch or a hole on the side for easy access?

    It may be worth getting a quote from you local Audi dealer, they should use a Wynns Aircomatic unit. This uses Ultrasonics to release a fine mist cleaner that circulates the system to kill the bugs.

    Minimum work involved but they will also change the pollen filter.
