For the love of God, where is the AC pressure sensor

Hi folks,

I've searched everywhere, multiple forums, google, google images, I've had the car in bits and I still can't find it. Any pointers?

On my Saab its located on top of the compressor - see the center of the picture, part with the two small holes and would think most modern compressors have the same design but stand to be corrected.

I'll assume you meant 3.2L gas V6. In general terms, it sounds like the pressure sensor is mounted in the line between the dryer & condenser. Current part number is 5K0959126. See listing here (item #2):

Here is the exploded diagram view of the entire AC hose system (item #35 in this diagram):

2006 Volkswagen Touareg United States market: Body Refrigerant circuit a/c condenser with fluid reservoir 3.2ltr. 3.6ltr. BMV,BMX,BRJ BHK

Good luck!

Sorry for the confusion, I believe the part in the picture is a pressure release valve.
