  • Aircon Help Please!

    Cars our of warranty. Air con pipe originally had a hole in it and let all the green fluid out.

    2 Months later drive along BANG!





    Ok so horrible noise coming from the pumps hole area, Stuff rattleing around. This stopped after a while then driving the next day heard loads of stuff fly out the bottom of the car!



    It got bigger -_-

    I could go get my aircon fixed for god knows how much, But I never use it and would rather get rid of it. How easy is it too take out? is it a matter off buying a new none AC Belt and taking the pump out. Or will this cause further issues.

    I've also heard of radiator problem related to this? can someone explain?

    The car drives perfect and at the right temp, although it does make a horrible noise coming from the right side of the car ( the air con pump area )

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    AFAIK yes it is as easy as taking it out and buying the shorter belt.

    I'm not aware of any radiator issues... although may be wrong.

      Thanks!

      1 more think I forgot to add is that I have climate control (its crap...) in my corsa will that effect it. I have to turn AC off in the settings, I assume this completely turns it off. bare in mind this blew up while AC was apparently turned off..
