I was trying out living without the air conditioning in the car and have been successful for this whole summer (because its actually been a pretty mild summer in CT). Its been great, windows down, wind streaming through.. brought back a lot of memories of summers past...
I try turning the A/C on this morning and its broken
Just had it checked out and, of course
, the garage recommends a new compressor. I did some research and supposedly GM/VW models that have this A/C problem might just need a refrigerant control valve (RCV) replacement which is a $80 part ($350 all in all with freon recharge and labor) compared to the near $1500
for a compressor + labor.
lame either way.... I ain't got no time for this shit.
