The A/C system is a complex system made up of many different components. The primary parts of your A/C system are the Compressor, Accumulator-Drier and Expansion device. Among these components, the A/C compressor is called the heart of the air conditioning system. It pumps the refrigerant throughout the system and also acts as a junction which divides the high-pressure and low-pressure sides of the system. It is driven by a serpentine belt attached to the engine. Most importantly, the compressor is responsible for regulating and circulating the refrigerant throughout the system.
The Volkswagen A/C compressor draws the refrigerant from the evaporator in the low-pressure side, compresses into high pressure gas and pushes it to the condenser in the high-pressure side.
