    My AC Compressor is not kicking in. I cannot get to the compressor enough to either view the code or remove the wiring and perform tests. CAN Clip shows the infamous DTC921613, which suggests no "feed" to the unit. Im guessing they mean power feed. I understand from another post on the forum...

They said they emptied and refilled the gas though it wasn't low and their diagnosis was that the feed (electric I assume) was getting to the compressor but not activating it so...
  11. Clio MK3 Air Con Compressor replacement.

    Heating & cooling
    I think I have a bit of a noisy compressor at the moment, it's not too bad and still works but sounds like it could be on its way out. Used replacements on eBay seems to go for £15 and upwards. Is it a big job replacing the compressor? How long would a competent mechanic take to do it? Thanks!

    Electronics
    My A/C has stopped working on my Megane 19dci 2011, I have been told that the compressor has seized, but there are no noises when it turned on, does this sound right? I was told that it won't even turn and it needs a new one, I have never had this before on a car, is this an issue with Renault?

  19. Compressor Question

    Do you leave your compressors full of air or drain them after each use? Mine doesn't get used much (especially lately) and a mate said I'm just putting unnecessary strain on the motor by emptying it after every use.. I wasn't sure though has when I empty it there's always a fair amount of...
  20. Noisy Aircon Compressor?

    Heating & cooling
    Whenever I switch on my aircon in my 2003 Megane Mk2, I get a subtle whirring noise which appears to rise and fall with the revs of the engine. I'm guessing this is likely to be bearings failing in the compressor. Can anyone concur or suggest an alternative problem? Thanks Bob
