Try and find out where you can get the SAME compressor from an
AC repair speciaist. I was under the impression that Audi does not
make the compressor anyhow, and that it was a NIPPONDENSO unit.
The controller is GM, perhaps the GM compressor used in the large
GM ars, Caddy, Olds,.. might be a good replacement.
I will look up J.C. Whittney, ( sorry... )
and see if they have a replacement compressor, should'nt be more
than $200, I think.
