Receiver Dryer


Risk Warning

If your Volkswagen has a Receiver Dryer problem, this could lead to a variety of issues with your vehicle. Firstly, it can lead to the compressor not being able to draw enough refrigerant in, meaning the air conditioning will not work as it should. This can also cause the refrigerant to become contaminated, reducing the efficiency of the system as a whole. In extreme cases, it could even cause the entire A/C system to fail due to the contaminated refrigerant.
