A/C Condenser for Volkswagen Beetle
The original Volkswagen Beetle featured 2-55 air conditioning systems (two windows open at 55 mph). The modern Beetle, however has come quite a long way in every aspect. The original Bug was a deathtrap, the new Beetle was considered the safest car in the world the year of its introduction; the Bug had barely 40 hp, the new Beetle is fast and nimble; the Bug had no A/C, the New Beetle has fantastic air conditioning.
Certain components of the A/C will wear out, and the Volkswagen Beetle’s A/C condenserr is one such part. The condenser is essentially a type of radiator.
The A/C gas, generally called Freon, is compressed to a high temperature and pressure in the compressor. It flows under pressure to the condenser. Air flows over it and cools it down. As the air cools, the water from it will condense on the radiator and fall below the vehicle, which is the trickle of water that you typically see underneath cars in the summer. The cool, high pressure Freon goes to an expander, where it is returned to low pressure, allowing it to absorb heat, which cools the car down. It then returns to the compressor where the cycle starts again. Work on the Volkswagen Beetle’s A/C condenser should only be performed by an experiences A/C mechanic. Specialized equipment is required to draw the vacuum and deal with the environmentally damaging Freon. Specialized knowledge is also required. Many private mechanics will not have the equipment to perform A/C work, so it may be necessary to seek out an A/C specialist.
