You need to remove the gas to replace the pressure sensor too.

Thanks, most other forum posts I have read say otherwise though? Unless the pressure sensor has failed at the seal so is leaking gas.

Anyone clarify?

You do not have to remove the gas, the sensor is screwed onto a self sealing valve when removed. Just remove and replace, no gas will escape!

Oh, I didn’t know that. When I had mine replaced I didn’t see the valve. Thanks for clarifying.  :happy2:

I thought that the pressure switch was on like a schrader valve so you can undo the switch and the gas doesn't escape - maybe wrong been 10 yrs since I did one at least. lol.

I searched for a 2008 car - 1K0 959 126 A VAG Pressure Switch, air conditioning number 18 here

https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/golf+variant+4motion/golf/2008-625/2/260-260041/#18

It appears that the N280 is part of the compressor, can't see it listed seperatley, but can get it from Autodoc aftermarket.

I've got the pressure switch coming any day now so will let you know if this solves it for me. If not gona buy the solenoid.
