99 VW Beetle blows warm air when you start air conditioner

Have a 99 VW Beetle. It blows warm air when you turn on the air conditioner. I've already checked the fuzes, made sure the compressor engages when turned on, and recharged the coolant. Is there anything other than a bad compressor that I may have missed?

Your condensor fins could be blocked by leaves or other debris on the outside. this component is located right behind the radiator. there could also be an overcharge or under charge in the system. make sure that when you charged the system that you used a good set of gauges to check the system pressures. Also check and make sure that there is not a blockage somewhere in the lines, Usually if there is there is a fine layer of ice surrounding it.

2000 VW Beetle 2.0L the air conditioner was blowing warm air, the shop replaced the expansion value, evacuated and filled with freon. the air conditioner blows cold while driving but warms up while...


at idle most a/c get warmer as they are not under load to circulate the freon at a rapid pace
changing the dryer is wasting your money won't change anything sounds to me as if there might be a vapour lock in the system. run the car for a week with a/c on max to fully circulate freon to see if the problem goes away if not go back to the shot tell them to check system with gauges on the high and low side to make sure that it infact is properly charged with the right amount and temp.
42-54 degrees is good

Air conditioner blow warm air after freeon


you could have a leak in the ac system which would be why you had to add freon. take it to a repair shop and ask them to check fo rleaks because adding more freon wont fix your issue if there is a leak.
