VW Jetta A/C receiver drier. The receiver drier on your Golf, Jetta, or New Beetle holds extra refrigerant in your AC system, and keeps the moisture out of the refrigerant. Whenever you’re A/C system is exposed to the air the A/C receiver drier needs to be replaced, this includes leaks.
While a Bentley Manual has the step by step instructions for installing your VW Jetta A/C receiver drier, it will also go in depth on how to repair other components in your A/C system. Make sure to inspect and replace the other components before you seal it all back up and get a recharge. If you don’t check out parts such as the receiver drier, compressor and condenser then you may find yourself taking it all back apart again spending more money because you still have a leaky system.
