R134a conversion kit for 5kt?
One of the reasons I'm looking for another Audi is the a/c system on mine
never worked since I bought the car 3 yrs ago. I changed the compressor
clutch with a rebuilt unit but the compressor is bad and I guess I will need a
new evaporator/dryer. The Nippondenso compressor is difficult to find and
buying one used (~$350), who knows how long it will last so instead of
spending over $1k to fix this, I'm considering converting over to an R134a
system at similar cost, hopefully. I know I have to change all the lines and
the systems are not compatible. Has anyone looked into doing this and at what
cost? If I find another car before summer, the 5KT will become our winter
beater and then I won't bother with fixing the a/c.
