I have replaced the fuel filter in my 1993 Passat VR6. It is located on the passenger side rail frame beneath the car, close to the rear wheel. The fuel filter is mounted in its own bracket, which is bolted to the car frame. I had to remove the fuel filter mounting bracket from the car frame to get it out. Pretty easy job to do, just 2 or 4 bolts, plus the clamps for the fuel lines. Make sure the filter is installed with the filter facing the correct direction. It is a 10 minute job or so once the car is jacked up. Also, I disconnected the battery just to make sure the fuel pump couldn't accidently engage.

Read the owners manual or call the V.W. service department. sound like you need to clean the filter. If you ignore the warning more then 3x you will cause damage and it will be costly.

If you vehicle is hesitating like it is not getting gas and then takes off like it just got gas then you might want to try replacing your air filter first, because is your air filter is dirty than you might not be getting the oxygen you need to run smooth, this will also give you better gas milage. If it is still doing this than you might want to replace the fuel filter it could also be dirty, you may be getting more than gas at the station. Unless you have the professional tools to remove and replace the filter, you might consider paying a VW place to do it for about $99 that is parts & labor. All auto mechanics are not the same.
Good Luck, mitchell in Houston

You should never connect a 12volt to the compressor solenoid.unless you unplug it first, because on some cars the ac solenoid is driven by an electronic circuit. Semiconductors are very sensitive to excessive current. I once had to repair the computer on a mercedes because the other mechanic did that. Luckily I know how to repair electronic circuits, or they would have bought a 500 dollars computer the little chip that blew only costed a dollar fifty cents at radio shack,.LOL. Anyways back to your problem, Have you checked if there is a leak, and all the refrigerant might have leaked out? This would prevent the compressor from coming on. Along the ac line there is a switch, sometimes by the reciever drier, when the system looses refrigerant the pressure inside drops and that pressure switch disable the compressor. , and the compressor wont come on. This is to protect the compressor, because it will be damaged if you run it without refrigerant. Ac clutch solenoid is usually is not driven by relay, because an ac solenoid don't really take much current to to kick in, unless of course it is shorted. It would either be directly from the inside switch usually in series with the fan control or driven by a small transistor in a circuit, and the electronic circuit is driven by the ac controls inside. I think the problem with your ac is that it has no refrigerant thats why the compressor wont come on.
