Volkswagen Touran Service Manual: Flushing Circuit Block Diagrams

  Note
The arrows in the following illustrations show the direction of refrigerant flow while flushing. During flushing, refrigerant flows in the opposite direction than during A/C system operation, therefore the high pressure side of A/C service station is connected to A/C compressor at low pressure side of refrigerant circuit.
These block diagrams indicate a refrigerant circuit with restrictor and reservoir and a refrigerant circuit with expansion valve, receiver/dryer and a second evaporator (optional equipment on certain vehicles)
Depending on the design of the A/C service station, check valves can be installed between the refrigerant circuit and the A/C service station. They guarantee the correct direction of refrigerant flow during flushing.
Refrigerant Circuit with Restrictor and Reservoir
  Note
On vehicles with restrictor and reservoir, the restrictor and reservoir are removed. Restrictor refrigerant pipes are reassembled. The refrigerant pipe to the removed reservoir are connected with each other via two adapters and the Refrigerant Circuits Adapter Set 2 - Adapter 31 -VAS6338/31- (from the Refrigerant Circuits Adapter Set 1 -VAS6338/1-).

Refrigerant circuit with expansion valve, receiver/dryer and second evaporator
  Note
This block diagram shows a refrigerant circuit with expansion valve, receiver/dryer and second evaporator (optional equipment on certain vehicles).
On vehicles with an expansion valve and receiver/dryer, the expansion valve is removed and replaced by an adapter. Depending on vehicle, receiver/dryer is flushed or dryer cartridge is removed. Depending on receiver/dryer version, it is to be removed and line connections to receiver/dryer are to be connected to each other with two adapters and a charging hose.
On a vehicle with only one evaporator, the components as of position "16" are not installed or are not required.
