Went to pick my daughter up from school today, REALLY hot here. So while my wife went into school I'm sat in the car with the air con on, or so I thought.
"That doesn't feel very cold", I thought to myself. Put the window down and could hear the compressor clicking on and off. EXACTLY the same problem I had last year, when the radiator fan turned out to be stone dead. So I got out and had a look, sure enough, the fan is just sitting there, oblivious to the fact that it should be spinning away like a top.
OK, so it's no massive deal to fix. I'll just get a scrap one, like before, and see how long that lasts - only problem is one of the bolts on the mounting bracket is seized on, so I'll have to man-handle it out of the top, past all the hoses again. Unfortunately, I've had so many problems with the car, I am completely and utterly pig sick of both spending money on it, and lying on my back underneath the damn thing.
Cannot wait til business picks up a bit and I can get rid of it. Don't think I'll be getting another Ford after this.
