Fred,

I rebuilt my Sanden SD7V16 compressor recently(about 10 mths ago) on my 2002 Jetta TDI. It turned out to be a bad control valve. While I was in the compressor, I replaced all the seals, and o rings. Check out this thread:

I got all my stuff from Polar Bear, and they were great to deal with. I ended up replacing my evaporator, expansion valve, orifice tube, all internal compressor seals, dryer, and all the O rings I could physically get to in the system. If you PM me, I can email some photos of the compressor internals for you. It was a tedious process, and I think I had around $100.00 tied up in the compressor parts alone. It was however rewarding to do something myself that most people don't atempt. Good luck!
