#19 of 27 Jetta 08, car fumes form outside can be smelled inside
Jul 01, 2012 (12:24 am)
Hi, I have Jetta 2008 TDI.
Since its purchase date all the fumes from outside can be heavily smelled inside (especially when standing in traffic all the fumes from the cars in front of me get into my Jetta causing headache). No matter if the "recirculation button" is on or off the fumes still get inside. To compare, I have an old Saab which doesn't have the same problem, so it is not my nose
Also I don't seem to hear the switching noise of the recirculation flap when i switch the air circulation mode.
I took the car once to VW service and was told there was no problem, but the issue of smelling any outside pollution in the car is a huge issue. I love the Jetta and wouldnt want to sell it. I am not very savy in repairs, but would like to have a go if I know what part needs to be changed. Can anyone help me to resolve the issue?

check fuses and if they're okay you'll have to check for low refrigerant level. The system will not engage the compressor if refrigerant is low, in order to protect the compressor from damage.

So are we quite sure no voltage is going to the AC compressor clutch?

Can you energize the AC clutch by applying (briefly) outside current to it?

I have one issue with this car which is it doesn't provide that much comfort which my friend and I was expecting from it.It feels like we paid very much that this car deserves.
