The A/C system is a complex mechanical system that involves many components working together for it to function properly. The primary parts of any A/C system are the Accumulator-Drier, Compressor 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. The compressor is driven by a serpentine belt attached to the engine. It regulates and circulates 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.
