The Audi V8 Quattro A/C Accumulator/Drier is one of the main components which protect the Compressor by not allowing liquid refrigerant inside the Compressor. The Accumulator/Drier receives refrigerant, Vapor and oil from the Evaporator and stores it. The primary function of the Accumulator/Drier is to separate vapor from liquid and oil, and pass vapor to the Compressor. The Accumulator/Drier contains a desiccant to remove moisture and filter out dirt. According to the type of vehicle, your A/C system may have either an Accumulator or a drier.
Even though the Accumulator and the drier serve the same purpose, driers are connected to the Condenser outlet of the high pressure side and Accumulators are attached to the Evaporator outlet of the low pressure side. If you feel any change in the working of your A/C system, you should check the issue to protect your car's Air Conditioning system.
