AC problems
« on: July 01, 2018, 12:13:50 PM »
MY AC stopped blowing cold air, it was quite warm!   My garage tells me that there is voltage to the compressor but its clutch will not engage, so a replacement compressor is needed. 

I have read about similar problems where there was voltage to a compressor but its clutch would not engage due to a wiring fault.  Once that fault was traced and rectified, the AC worked OK.  Why is this? [NE1]

If you have voltage to compressor but it’s not engaging then you don’t have a wiring fault?

If you 100% have voltage to the clutch try some wd40 and a rubber mallet as the clutches can stick sometimes. Failing that find a decent 2nd hand one and just swap clutch over so you don’t need to regas etc
