My a/c has just packed up and blowing warm air to me.
Had the gas checked and topped up to correct level/amount. Still not working.
I can hear a clicking noise next to the compressor when the a/c is switched on/off. Does this mean the compressor is working?
I know there was a service bulletin on the petrol models.
I am new to this club so apologies if topic has already been spoken of.
Any comments greatly accepted before I go further with this, at a possible great expense:-/

If the compressor is the same one used on petrol CR-Vs, the clutch may have failed.

A better test (rather than just listening for the CLICK) is to see if the compressor actually TURNS when the clutch is actuated. (Look at the center of the pulley.)


The issue was, the clutch gap got so wide, it couldn't 'hold' the compressor engaged. There are specs for the gap on the Internets...
