To replace the condense of A5 VW Golf 4 cylinder air conditioner and change oil in pump

To change the condensor undo the lines and mounts and remove.Replacing is opposite proceedure. Replace the air dryer/ receiver at the same time. There should be no need to change the compressor oil as it moves trhrough the system with the gas and there is no sump as such.

The air conditioner will not cool

if you are only getting 2-3 days out of a charge of refrigerant, it is likely you've got a pretty decent sized leak. Most likely the condenser, as I'm guessing that hasn't been replaced yet since it is probably the hardest part in the a/c system to access. it could also be bad o-ring seals at any juncture in the system. if it has been going in for 9 weeks and you still have a leak that bad, I would recommend specifically asking them if they are using a UV dye, and if they have used a refrigerant "sniffer" inside the weap holes where condensation runs out from the condenser... I had a similar problem in my pontiac a few summers ago, they found the leak in my condenser using their refrigerant "sniffer/detector" device by sticking it up in the weap holes, pretty expensive to repair.

on a side note, there is a stop leak that you can buy at almost any autoparts store, called "super seal". most garages will advise against it, but the guys at my local "big name" autoparts store, swear by it for the big leaks in expensive places.

Need information on the removal and replacement of air conditioner condenser and pulley for 97 Taurus

This is a professional job. You need to drain & reclaim freon so it does not get into atmosphere. Then evacuate system with a vacuum pump for 30 minutes, then refill with R134a freon in the proer amount. Need special tools too. Probably a $500 job.

The air conditioning in my 2005 T&C stopped working. Right before it stopped there was a "burnt" smell coming through the vents. What happened?

No air coming from air conditioning vents
  1. Check the air conditioner fuse and replace as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner system discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  3. Air conditioner low pressure switch defective. Replace switch.
  4. Air conditioner fan resistor pack defective. Replace resistor pack.
  5. Loose connection, broken wiring or defective air conditioner relay in air conditioning electrical circuit. Repair wiring or replace relay as necessary. Air conditioner has a smell when used
    1. The air conditioner evaporator drain hose is blocked or partially restricted, allowing condensation to build up around the evaporator and drainage tray. Clear the drain hose where it exits the passenger compartment.
    2. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

The right hand cooling fan is allways on when the ignition is on, even during start up in the morning. changed the teperature sending unit to the ecu,(the big plug one) and the relays in the fuse box under...

Try turning the air conditioner off. Some fans run while the air is on. Most cars are made so the air conditioner runs in most of the heater settings. The fan blows draws air through the condenser so the air conditioner will work right It changes the freon from a gas to a liquid.

1996 impala ss air conditioner compressor is very noisy

That clutch and coil are serviceable without replacing the compressor but I have had little success with this as usually the clutch gets in that shape subsequently from activity going on inside the compressor which means that clutch is failed generally for a reason.replace the compressor -orfice tube-reciever drier and happy motoring......
