On Friday evening, I bring the car to have the R134a gas refilled. It appears it was already full.
The low pressure was good but but the high pressure did not go up: only 143 PSI. And all think seeing the compressor running apparently properly.
So this morning I bring it to my Audi mechanic and he will check if it can be repaired or if the compressor must be replaced. Knowing the compressor is about 3 years old, and the AC system was fully checked in February, it means that maybe the compressor had a defect of an hidden weakness :/
Stay tuned as I should be able to have the answer by end of next week :)

Thank you all
