    hi all,


    What is needed to remove my air con on my audi s3 2000 apy,
    as it gets in the way with the turbo on top mount

    I don't really use it this is what I need to know
    1. Is there a belt that i can get from audi to delete air con pump ?
    2. can i just leave the sensor unplugged or will i need a resistor for it if so which one would it be the same as the second air pump removal ?
    Thanks

    Tony

    I think these are the OEM belt specs - 06A 145 933 D (1120mm) - should be from a 1.8T without air con.

    Not sure about the need for a resistor, can't you get it deleted when mapping? - would be interested in what you do here though.

    Are you taking the heat exchanger out too?

    cheers mate

    im going to be taking all the pipes across the back off bulk head out
    the pump and also the rad so i can sit my intercooler more back

    im going to use 330ohs 10w resistors which should work fine
