No problem....

The technician said that mine is the second one he has replaced. From looking at it, it's not easy to detect a problem. He found out when he tried to recharge the refrigerant and it leaked from that location.

trying to get an idea where exactly in the engine compartment this pic is from. suppose we should all check the area just to make sure.

plac, that pic is taken from the passenger side. The upper hose with all those numbers is the throttle body coupler.

I also had this problem on my car a few months ago. The service manager said he's seen the problem before as well.

I'm also checking this out later on. My A/C seems extremely weak as of late.

You got it, plac. I guess the original clamp was installed incorrectly with the "pinch" portion against the other AC line. So far so good.

Two thumbs up to KEFFER VW!!!!



And here's the description written (WITH PART NUMBERS) by the service consultant:
Your a/c is only getting down to 46 degrees with an ambient temp of 75? That's still weak, you should be getting down to about 41-42 max cold. I live in Austin and checked mine with vent gauge, it gets down to 41 F with an ambient of 98 F. You're going to be sweating if it gets into the 90's where you live.

Austin, TX - dry heat

Charlotte, NC - HUMIDITY


That's the BIG difference. It works perfectly fine even if it doesn't get down to 41/42 degrees.

Hah. You must have never to Austin, I see. It's pretty humid here. Maybe not as bad as Charlotte, but it's not the desert. Just sayin'.
