Aircon leak from high pressure pipework

Post by jasimog » Tue Jun 25, 2019 12:17 pm

Aircon failure last week with VCDS fault code 00229 low pressure. My trusted local aircon technician located a pinhole leak on the high pressure (smaller bore) pipework right underneath the fuel filter. All other functionals inc compressor tested OK.

I'm looking to replace that pipe run from the bulkhead to the condenser, followed by a recharge. I'll post updates here with any tips. Just ordered a new pipe for £45 plus postage (3C0 820 741 AJ).
