    Does anyone have a method or screen shots etc of the factory procedure for removing and replacing the a/c compressor on an A4 B7 3.0TDI quattro engine?

    Do you need the lock carrier (front end removal) parts?

    Oh and only a Safe Handling of Refrigerants Certificate holder can empty the system.

    Last weekend I got my system de-gassed at a local garage and then replaced the compressor with a new one following the guide posted by TYphoon GB, thanks for this all went well, bit of a job but got it sorted!

    I need to get the system re gassed, can I do this with the gas bottles and valve adapter (which I already have for topping up my old cars) that you can buy in Halfords or should I go and get the system re-gassed at the garage that de-gassed it with a proper AC machine?
