My AC died on my car in the beginning of August. It was blowing air, but the air was hot, not cold.
I took it in August 8, and after several hours of diagnosis they said I needed to replace the "coolant fan control module assy" [heretofore referred to as Part #1] which cost $282.50 new. When I picked up the car, the AC worked, but it wasn't as frigidly cold as it had been before.
Seventeen days after they fixed it, the AC went again. Same deal--air blowing, but not cold.
They told me this time that one of my 2 fans went. They said when my fan went it shorted out the $282 Part #1 they had just put in. So now I need a $200 fan ($500 new), which only has a one month warranty, and I have to pay to replace Part #1 because it's my car's fault that my fan blew it out. They will send the Part #1 that blew out last week back to VW because it's under warranty, and IF VW decides to reimburse me it will be at least 2 to 3 months. And there's no guarantee they'll reimburse me.
Should I have to pay for Part #1 twice? And shouldn't they have checked the fans to see if that's why Part #1 went out in the first place?
