Hard to say, stopped blowing air? Or blows but it's not cold?

If it's not cooling a good first check is to see if the compressor is turning. It's down towards the left front tire.

The belt would be moving and the grooved part of the pulley/clutch will be turning (or you'd be getting a low battery warning too). But the front tripod-looking bit should be stopped if the AC is off and turning with the grooved pulley if the AC is engaged.

The works is mostly the same as a B5 Passat (compressor fits great) or similar year A6 so you can look for a writeup on diagnosing the common problems on these cars for more help.
