Take the vehicle to an independent AC specialist and have them check the
refrigerant level. And if that's low, have them check for leaks. The
other possibility is a bad thermostat causing the system to freeze up, but
its working for as long as a few hours suggests that is not the problem.
When you say "stops working", can you elaborate, is it when it's on Auto or
Manual, do you use the Demist function, maybe the car is reaching the
temperature and the fans are stopped, Does the display shut off.
Personally I find the B6 Climate Control pretty poor, the B5 was better,
Audi have now realised that 18c is sometimes too warm, also when you have
the climate on 18C on manual its hotter than it is on Auto.
Also the fans on the Audi don't work until the engine has warmed up
sufficiently, this can mean it takes 5 mins before you even get the demist
function, or at least on my Audi it does this, does anyone else's?
So on demist you get no air coming from the vents on the top of the dash?
The air is directed by servo motors, maybe one has gone a dealer will be
able to tell you more.
A test would be to change the direction of the airflow and see if you hear
the flaps moving with no air coming out.
