Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Refrigerant Circuit Component Arrangement

  Caution
Non-approved tools or materials such as leak sealing additives can cause damage or malfunctions in the system.
Only use tools and materials approved by the manufacturer.
The warranty is voided if non-approved tools or materials are used.
All components of the refrigerant circuit submitted for quality observation are always to be sealed (use original sealing caps of original part).
Replace damaged or leaking components of refrigerant circuit. Refer to → Chapter „Components, Replacing“.
To date, the original parts (compressor, reservoir, receiver/dryer, evaporator and condenser) have been filled with nitrogen gas. This charge is being gradually discontinued. There is little or no pressure equalization when removing the sealing plugs from the original part.
High pressure side are the condenser, receiver/dryer and restrictor or expansion valve to separate the high and low pressure liquid ends.
High pressure results from the restrictor or expansion valve forming a constriction and causing the refrigerant to accumulate, thus leading to an increase in pressure and temperature.
Excess pressure results if too much refrigerant or refrigerant oil is used, the condenser is contaminated, the coolant fan is malfunctioning, the system is blocked or if there is moisture in the refrigerant circuit (the restrictor or expansion valve freezes).
Low pressure side are the evaporator, reservoir, evaporator temperature sensor and compressor to separate high and low pressure gas ends.
A drop in system pressure can occur due to loss of refrigerant, restrictor or expansion valve (restriction not given), A/C compressor malfunction or iced evaporator.
