facia one fuse 25
facia two relay 16
facia three fuse 5, relay 2, relay 3
all three of the above panels are located on the drivers side (which in the diagram i have is righthand drive).
Those are pretty much all the fuses and relays that control your a/c. the clicking noise you hear is probably one of the three relays i've listed. now i don't know alot about audi's except i'll never own one. but i have a lot of information if you have other questions.
that flickering you noticed could be one of the relays failing or you have a short somewhere in the wiring.
anything else you need feel free to ask
Please take a moment to rate this solution .. thanks
Incidentally the only reason that i can think of that those parts would melt is that the current is high on those wires. are there any recalls that you are aware of ?

It could be your low pressure cycle switch is going bad. Check the connection to the switch and it's is located on the A/C Accumulator. The other thing to check is the A/C relay and that is located in the glove box. There is a panel in the glove box that say's relay, there is three relays in there and one of the out side relay's out of the three is the A/C. can not remember which one it is. The middle relay is the fuel pump and the other one is the third break light. Switch the two out side relays and see if your A/C get's better. the other thing too is if the R134a is just a little low, and needs to be topped off. Good luck and hope this helps. if your going to try to recharge the A/C system your self, keep in mind not to over charge.

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.

You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low.
What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...
