Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Heating and Cooling - Climate Control affects accel
I have just had what I think is a catastrophic failure of my aircon compressor.
Smoke from burning rubber was comeing out of the engine bay so I stopped the engine immediately to investigate.
Something was locking up the auxillary belt causing it to slip on the crank pulley, wether the aircon was on or not. I cut the damaged belt off which allowed me to get the car home without power steering ( extremely hard ).
All of the pulleys, alternator and power steering pump spin freely so the only thing left is the aircon pump.
Can anyone tell me if they have experienced this and what could cause the pump to lock up
