Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Receiver

The receiver collects the liquid droplets and directs them in a continuous stream to the expansion valve. Moisture which has entered the refrigerant circuit during assembly is collected by the dessicant bag in the receiver.
  Note
Renew the receiver if the refrigerant circuit has stood open for any length of time (more than the normal repair time) and moisture has entered the system, or if it is required because of a specific complaint → Chapter.
Do not remove sealing plugs until just before installation.
The dessicant bag in an unsealed receiver will become saturated with moisture within a short time and is then unusable.
When installing, observe arrow indicating direction of flow, if applicable.
 

Receiver

The new generation of receivers are mounted directly on the condenser and contain a dryer cartridge.
  Note
Renew the dryer cartridge if the refrigerant circuit has stood open for any length of time (more than the normal repair time) and moisture has entered the system, or if it is required because of a specific complaint → Chapter.
Remove the dryer cartridge from its packaging only immediately before installing it.
A dryer cartridge in unsealed packaging will become saturated with moisture within a short time and is then unusable.
