Today we are back with more failed VW parts. We are right in the middle of a pretty hot summer. With a hot summer comes failing Air Conditioning. One of the most common things we are seeing fail is A/C compressors. We are doing several a week. The most common seem to be on 2.0t TDI (engine code CJAA) and 2.5 engines. It is not the only thing that I see cause poor air conditioning, but it is common.
