Where in TX are you? I can check it Monday after 3pm if you are nearby (Dallas-Fort Worth) and can drive to my house. Send me a PM, as I get notifications faster.

Ravenol is fine, I used Valvoline Maxlife ATF for my son's Passat and my wife's Golf. It worked fine in both and the Passat has about 250K. It was cheaper and is available at Walmart.

As I said in an earlier post, the condenser has NO moving parts.
