Joined yesterday and am back with my first of many questions. I've got a 2005 passat TDI and the ac take about 5 to 10 minutes to start cooling. Once it is going its blowing nice cold air. Does anyone have any pointers where to start looking for the problem. Bit of a double whammy because 2 of the windows are inoperative at the moment (read the thread and think I can solve that problem) but until I do it's very hot here in South FL. Thanks in advance for any advice offered.
