Could be two fold ,but first i would check the amount of gas by weight ,so it would need the correct machine to this ,empty the system and the machine tells you how much gas was in the system,anything less that 200grms and the symptoms you describe will cause this ,now if the gas weight was ok over 250' or so grams then the problem could be caused by one of two things,either the compressor has given up or the restrictor valve on the cabin radiator ,Now when the system is recharged with about 700grms of gas you open the high pressure valve and measure the pump pressure which should be about 200lbs or more ,now without the machine all you can do is to touch the thin pipe coming out of the compressor and see if its hot ,very hot ,if its not then either the compressor is shot or the venturi valve ,and the amount i do where their is no AC and its not teh compressor its the valve so now i change them first as they are only 50 euros trade to me ,before i change the compressor ,also if i do change a compressor i have to change the drier/filter or the auto factor will not sell a exchange compressor to me ,another rip off as far as iam concerned because i can clean them out with my air line .so if its a compressor then you are looking at 500 euros minimum plus the drier which can be another 100 euros or more

A/C air sometimes cold, sometimes not on VW Beetle 2001 Turbo


AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups

A/c in jetta blows hot air, its been charged, compressor comes on.


you need to have it diagnosed by a professional. These are complicated systems even to a trained tech. You may be over or under charged, have a clogged expansion valve, have a leak or many other issues. This model has a rcv refrigerant control valve inside the compressor which regulates the pressure of the compressor. If you notice the compressor never shuts off like conventional auto a/c's do the only time the clutch works is when you turn it on or off. Can be complicated.

Where is the a/c relay switch on the 1998 vw beetle


the relay for the A/C is in the fuse box.  However, you will also get no power to the compressor clutch if you are out of Freon..  You may need to jump the low freon switch to refill the system.  Good luck.
