    My bloody Aircon pump has siezed up !! After 116k of faultless operation, the last few miles were noisey until it siezed and stalled the engine. As long as i run on Econ, so the clutch is not engaged i still have heaters, so the Q is does anyone have a spare one????

    I'm picking up a 2,3 V5 20V tomorrow, from a 2001 Passat. I believe the compressor is a 3-bolt mounting type, will see when I've got it here.

    Byzan, you still after a compressor?

    Picked up a '97 1,8 SE, aircon all works fine, and part number's are common to ADR and AEB.

    Let me know if you're still interested.
