    Default Aircon compressor clutch

    Just picked the car up from the airport long stay to find that my compressor has gone doolally!
    Dropped it off at the airport and the aircon was lovely and ice cold, had it all regassed and the cabin freshener done at Mr Clutch a couple of months back.
    Picked it up two days ago after 2 weeks away and when I press the Compressor button I can hear a background whirring like smooth metal surfaces being rubbed against each other. The temp drops a little, nothing like it used to, and oddly, the fan works fine on all settings, except when the Comp' button is depressed, then the fan 1 setting is non existent, 2,3,4, are o.k!
    Any ideas? I think it might be the aircon clutch. Most appreciated.

    The clutch wont engage if the gas has leaked.

    Problem is the condensor. Called a mobile air con specialist out. Given up the ghost. New condensor and back up to pressure, everything engaging, and icey cold!
