The exploding CRV compressor is well publicised and the one in my 110,000 mile CRV packed up last summer on a run back from Cornwall. However I am posting my experience here as it seems unusual. The AC just stopped working - no noises, screeching or bangs. Having got a spanner to the compressor spindle (no easy task ) it appears to be seized solid although did not explode. However if it had just seized I would have expected the serpentine belt to have started squealing when the pulley stopped rotating or the fuse to the clutch coil to have blown - which would have released the clutch. But the pulley is able to rotate freely and the clutch coil did not blow. So since then I have just continued to run the car - although removed the compressor fuse as precaution. I have had the AC system emptied (no swarf noted) and plan to remove the compressor in a few weeks time to see if the seize actually filled the AC system with swarf - or to see if I got lucky. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has had a similar experience with the compressor and what the outcome was? Thanks.
