SOURCE: jetta 2.8 ac problems

alright my friend i will tell u what u need to do
- buy a/c manifold guge
- vacumn pump for the a.c sytem
u will never be able to diagnose a system wit one guage
- u alwys need two guages to diagnose system. the MANIFOLD!
harbor freight these two units are cheap there.
go to a shop have the refrigerent vacumned into a tank so the freon isnt ust flying in the air.]
then you dont do neything to the whole a/c system keep it how it is. .
hook up ur manifold first. high side low side ports.
when u r doing this make sure those knobs on that manifold r closed.
then u hook up the yellow lkine to the pump.
put a vacumn on it for an hour to draw out all the crappy moisture atmosphere air etc... i forgot to say after all hoses r connected corecctly and tightened down you can now open up both those knobs. blue and red..
turn pump on pull vacumn for a hour atleast 45 min. then turn pump off whatch the guages for 15 min. see if they hold the vacumn if not and that needle starts moving up . u have a leak.find and fix.
repeat the proccess i just said. then enter refrigerebt 28 0z. for your system your clutch will not kick on until there is a proper amount of pressure in the system. get about 24-25oz in there see what happens .... .let me remind u everytime u open ur system reciever dryer must be replaced. ans you also need 4oz. of 46 peg oil. email me for any troubles. drobdog@gmail

I have a 1997 VW Jetta. One head light is burned out and and one and tail light is burned out. Could you please advise on how to fix them? What tools will I need? How long will this taken an amateur?

i would check your fuses first. vw's are renowned for electrical problems. i have a newer jetta, but bulbs are easy to replace. you should be able to pop the hood and see the connector for the bulb. they should twist out. same for the tail light, should twist out from the trunk. I'll try to find more info. job should take maybe a half hour at most.

I doubt the bulbs are ALL blown unless there was a short in the wiring. look for it to be the dimmer switch

My airconditioning panel does not light up when I put my lights on. The whole dash lights up but not that part. I figure it is a fuse but I dont know which one

Behind the AC control panel is a small light bulb, u will have to pull the panel out and replace that bulb, the bulb is mounted in an equally small twist in socket, u can buy the bulb from VW or most auto parts stores like NAPA or Carquest.

Shorter serpentine belt on 2001 jetta tdi

Yes you can get a shorter belt and bypass the ac. It may be as simple as going to the parts store and tell them you have 2001 jetta no ac. Just keep the receipt.
You should also disconnect the a/c compressor connectors/wires/plugs also, try doing this before you bypass the ac first incase doing so gives you warning lights on the dash board.
Also know that the defrost setting uses the a/c so it will take longer to get the condensation off the inside of the window.
