After many terrible months of compressor hunting, compressor failing, then compressor re-hunting, Staining my hands any clothing with UV dye, and waiting for Advance auto to get the CORRECT set of O-rings----I have brought an 18 year old Climate Control System back to Life...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.......................

And now the only problem is where to park and store the three parts cars I ended up with.

I don't Really Know about the MKIII Comp. but if its anything like the MKII you can check the O-rings and the fittings you might to replace the metal lines leading to and from the Comp., or it could just be shot, you can try replacing the part where the lines connect........There could be many problems....all of them pretty simple to find...you just got to spend alot of time looking.

You charged it with R134 and it worked....DAMN....I never thought of that, I spend all this time and money buying fittings and R12 connectors and then hunting down a cheap case of Freeze-12......I never even thought about just putting R134 in it.....Well good for you, I'm glad it worked.

if its the condenser, take it out and take it to a radiator/ac shop. depending on how bad it is, they can weld it up for you and it will be as good as new.

i did this in my daily driver and i get freezing cold air and i love it. just to give you an idea of how bad mine was, when you charged it up, it leaked out within an hour.
