Hi Dave the car runs perfect other than the warm air and the noise is now gone. I'm wondering if it might have been a broken belt or something?

The A/C compressor is a shaft drive, just have a look around where the noise came from and see if anything is amiss. What's happening with the A/C control panel?

Everything looks normal and AC control panel is working as usual. Any idea of the cost to repair it if its a compressor? My car is a V10 Manual

Have your shop insert some dye into the system and that will identify if/where the leak is.

My A/C light was still coming on when I lost my refrigerant due to a holed condenser.

Does anyone know the labor costs on the compressor replacement? on V10?
I would it expect it to be several thousand just based upon past quotes on the forum. Scott's quote ($4,800 above) most likely includes the parts, but nonetheless you get the idea.

Hi Ezmass
Cost of the compressor is $1348 and they said 10.5 hrs at $135 per hr = $1418 plus shop supplies of $160 is about $3000. Not good but better than $4800. I hope its accurate

Thanks to a forum member here (thanks HowieR8?) I found you can get the Denso (OEM compressor unit for Audi) much cheaper if you forgo the Audi branded unit. Paid about $350 for the compressor w/clutch (although clutch is not used).

It is the same compressor. Denso on the left, Audi branded on the right.
