    Default More on The A/C Compressor

    Looking on ebay and there's quite a few but are they the same between different engines? Can I get one for an 8v CDTi or a 2.2 petrol for my 150 CDTi?

    Then e-bay that. Remember to change the seals too.

    Had it pressure tested and plenty of gas and checked the volts at the plug onto the compressor and there is power to it so it has to be the compressor.

    i had mine re gassed last week before our trip away, as soon as we got opn the m6 and turned the ac on it was blowing coolish air wasnt cold at all. ranfg the guy who did it so were going to take it back so he can test for leaks. knowing my luck its gonna cost a bomb to repair. hope you get it sorted buddy.

    Is your car filled with gas? To save having to get it de-gassed and re-gassed just change the clutch. It's not uncommon for the electromagnet to pack up on them
