      2010 Golf A/C failed

      So I took a road trip down to St. Louis only to find out my a/c did not work. I had not used it for probably like two months. The a/c light came on but the air did not get one bit colder. ...

      I have 23k on my 2010 2.5 golf mt and it also makes this noise. I don't think its much to worry about unless it gets worse. Having said that I didn't notice it when the car was new.
