Its the control valve in the compressor, available separately - dont buy a new compressor.
While you are at it change mechanics.
Call Sean at European Auto Air.

When you say it has stopped working? No fans? blows warm air? Makes funny noises?
I'd start with going to an automotive AC specialist and get them do you a quote. Your mechanic might be giving you the FO price because he doesn't want to do the job.

Mk6 Golf - Jetta - Scirocco - Beetle / 2010 mk6 Golg R Aircon Compressor

Hi guys,

Just recently brought a 2010 Mk6 Golf R and obviously love it but have run into my first problem. My aircon has stopped working and my usual mechanic has priced it at $3500 to fix.... almost a quarter of what i paid for the car. Anyway have any of you had similar problems or know what part number i might need to sort a part myself as the mechanic wont budge or give me the part number i need?

Cheers Matt

That is rather unfair, he was MUCH slower than Gasly in almost all qualifying, he had a break with the weather, and in the races even when he had a decent qualifying position he didn't take advantage of it in the race. To be blunt, I was surprised he didn't get dropped after the mid-season break. I do rate him as a driver, but perhaps not F1?
I'm not quite sure what his problem was but perhaps he never quite settled down to the high-risk cut-throat nature of F1 versus the paced nature of endurance where there was also a lot of emphasis on preserving the car and getting it home. Might have been he just wasn't ever fully at home with the open wheel, exposed cockpit rather than the enclosed WEC cars? For the latter, I had a drive in an uncle's FV many, many years ago and it just felt so exposed I couldn't relax - and that was just during a test day, no way I'd feel comfortable in a race.

I always thought he should have stayed there but I guess you have to follow your dreams.
Anyway, he will no doubt, be better for the experience and although probably a pretty frustrating year for him may in the end have proved a worthwhile exercise.
