Sanden SD7V16 A/C Compressor Internal Control Valve

Sanden SD7V16 A/C Compressor Internal Control Valve

DiscountAutoAC-CompressorParts.com now has the hard to find Sanden SD7V16 AC Compressor internal control valves available for purchase. This is the refrigerant control valve that is used to control the flow of refrigereant through the compressor piston cylinder chambers and is part of the valve plate assembly.
If your Volkwagen or Audi has an SD7V16 A/C Compressor and you have poor pumping or static pressures with a no pump situation it is more than likely the internal mechanical control valve is or has failed. To replace simply remove backplate and install NEW valve. You can also find it on Ebay.

  1. Do you have to pull the compressor to get to the backplate?

  2. Most likely. The bolts are 3 inches long and the control valve is part of the valve plate assembly. Also, if any dirt gets between the top or bottom gasket you will have a leak as the bolts are torqued to 10-15 foot pounds. But i guess if you are careful and have enough room you could.
