Intermittant Air Con Problem
Posted 25 May 2012 - 10:09 AM
Im having an air con problem im hoping someone can help me with. I have had the air con serviced and they found a leak where the pipes were joining so they fixed it, oiled it and re-gassed the system. I also had the air con belt changed while they were there.
Im now having an intermittant problem where only sometimes the clutch is engaging and the air con is working. When I turn the air con on sometimes it comes on straight away and other times it takes a long time. I was travelling down the motorway yesterday with the cruise control on and when the clutch engages you can feel the car judder and the revs drop. When the air con is working its great and really cold but it is completely random of when it will turn itself on and off.
Has anyone else had this problem or know what needs replacing? Does the air con clutch have springs like the engine clutch that may be on the way out?
Have something to contribute?

The compressor clutch is magnetic. When power is supplied the clutch engages and in the absence of power it is free.
