View Full Version : AC issues

08-04-2014, 05:13 AM

I have a 2000 A4 TQM. I am on my third set of high side AC components (compressor, condenser, dryer, and orifice tube). Luckily this is still covered under warranty.

Essentially what ends up happening is either the compressor dies and/ or the system stops blowing cold air. Every time, there is debris in the orifice tube. One time, the orifice tube was changed and the system worked again. Now it is not working at all. My mechanic swears up and down that they flushed the system every time.

The car is in the shop right now. In the mean time, I wanted to ask you guys your opinions on the manner. Is there anything else that could cause this issue other than improper flushing of the system?
