    ....Ran output test on fans. Both fans start and run during test.
    Not sure if this model has a slow speed, but for now, I assume not, since that was not part of the test. I cleared faults for fans. They have not returned, yet.
    Downloaded VW Repair Manual for HVAC system, and wiring diagram. Yikes, wiring diagram was a large file, but I have it now.
    ....not sure what to do, but I think I will try output test HVAC and see what happens.

    ...previous statement about fans working was incorrect. I saw them running at high speed, but when I turn on the ignition and turn on the ac...neither fan is running, and since I have a fault on the fans, I'm going to remove the fault before considering ac again.

    I'm going to revisit output test to see if I can learn more about the fans.
    Don't speculate verify the mechanical's yet?

    Thanks for the videos.
    Pretty sure I observed pulley and shaft spinning together. So, I think that part is mechanically sound.

    I will try to test for power to the RCValve.

    So you did this by taking off hub and verifying or you used x-ray super hero vision?

    If you think you are doing this by looking at pulley on belt and center clutch like a traditional compressor you are way wrong!

    Yikes! Quite a lot of sarcasm, but I get your meaning. I understand there is not an external clutch, but I thought I could see pulley and shaft turning together, but apparently that might not be the case. I will have to look at that again!

    Good idea...........

    Did you know it only takes a couple minutes to take hub off to inspect it?

    You would appreciate that video and spare part if you dont have to change valve or open system.
