On my MK5 GTI, I have 4 compressors and 3 total AC systems replaced.
They are not using quality components for these systems any longer.
Sorry to hear about yours!
So here's the deal. 09 VW CC with 2.0tsi motor 51,000 miles. My ac was not blowing cold anymore so i put a can of r134 with stop leak into the system. Blew colder for about a week. Then nothing. All hot air coming from vents. Ran for over 15 min on way home blowing hot air and turned off car in driveway. Freon blew out of compressor blow by valve. Replaced high pressure switch still no ac. Any input?

Similar situation here. Mine would blow somewhat cold, and then intermittently blow warm/hot air. I grabbed a gauge at work one day to see what it read, and it was a tad low. Took it to my buddy who has a shop, he evacuated my system and recharged it to spec, **** blew like an icebox that day, later that week it was almost back to the same ****, haven't put a gauge on it yet though to see if I've leaked yet. I will say it doesn't blow as hot, but has it's intermittent fluctuations of blowing nice and cold to somewhat warm.
More people against the fix a leak AC repair in a can. Really, don't do it.
