Air Conditioner on 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Gee thanks for going around my question and give an answer that was so obvious.

Do you have the gauges and scan tool to inspect your VW A/C system? If so, then go ahead, if not , well it can be pretty tough because your system is Computer Controlled with Sensors and such. It is not so simple like the older systems. Also, there are R-134 gauge sets, do you have those too? To really inspect an A/C problem, you need to SEE the line pressures and then use Temperature Graph to see what the low Side or Suction Side and then the High Side or Compression side is doing. If you can do this on your own, great, but you asked the question, so you must need at least a little help. The average person can be hurt by the high pressure A/C R-134 hitting their eyes, so there are Auto Shops out there for a reason and NOT all of them are ripoffs, believe me. Best of Luck!
