ONE FOR VEHICLE AIRCON EXPERTS.


Recommended Posts

Hi, If an aircon compressor locked up solid would the clutch burn out instantly or just slip for a while. Also is it common for compressors to lock up.

Thanks.

I’ve seen that a couple of times on older Audi A3’s.

ive just fitted a complete second hand A/C pump inc clutch to keep the cost down for the customer. One thing to watch for that the old pump hasn’t shed loads of metal filings into the system as that can cause problems for the replacement pump

Depends on age / clutch type. 
 

My old Polo locked up and so did the clutch giving a load of smoke and bother. 
 

My Mercedes has been running with a ****ed pump for a year no bother.
