Hi guys and girls!
I'm having some problem with my air suspension compersor, it won't start...
The initial problem: Got the red suspension warning. The back of the car was on it's lowest setting.
Foult: the air elbow connector on the brown line on the compressor had snapped.
What I've done:
- checked here and on Google for help (even some translated russian sites)
- Removed compressor, fitted new fitting (not original, but something I had available at work, seal is fine)
- compressor won't start when I turn on car.
- compressor starts from external power source, and gives some air out on the spare wheel filling (brown line). But does not seem to fill the accumulators or the suspension.
Now I'm stumped and would really appreciate if someone had some good ideas ideas ?
Is there some way to fill the accumulators from an external compressor?
Yes I'm back with another problem. Ctt 06 with 4 zone climate control, 45 degrees in dubai and the AC starts to blow hot. Had new gas 1050 grams as per spec after the head gaskets were done 4 months ago, vac test showed no leaks then.
I had to keep turning it off and on to get it to kick back in which is suspiciously like the compressor clutch not kicking in.
Possibilities of the cause of intermitted fault?
Can compressor be repaired if removed?
Will be swapping the relay later from the rear defogger (same part number 40a relay) to make sure it not that and yes a trip to the local shop for gas volume check and leak test.
Ruling out the control flaps as when I increase temp to 29 it is blowing super hot and all the control flaps and noises can be heard switching, and back to low setting gives hot air but much less roasting.
The vehicle is a 2005 997 Carrera 3.6. I cannot find the part #'s for the 3 power steering pump mounting bolts. They are exposed after removing the power steering pump pulley. In the attached picture you will see 3 holes in an upside down U shape behind the triangular pulley mount. I tried my local dealer without any luck.
I need your insights here.
On the drive back this evening - 111F in Phoenix - the AC cooling was low. I also felt a bit of squeal coming from the behind the dashboard when the compressor was running - a mechanical-ish squeal. The engine temperature was near high 190s. After I parked the car, noticed the green coolant spots - not many or large - two or so (I've attached some photos).
Some history on the replacements so far,
1) 7/2009 - AC compressor was replaced
2) 7/2011 - Cracked coolant reservoir was replaced.
I don't see any coolant under the tank (as in attached photo).
Is my compressor again coming in for a replacement? What is the connection with the drops of coolant?
Please help :huh:
I have a 2004 996 carrera with an aircon problem.
Basically the air coming out of the vents is cool but not cold.
I thought this was down to the system needing re gassing so I had this done.
The performance seemed to improve for a short time but is now under performing again.
Also the AC compressor clutch seems to be engaging/disengaging every 15-20 seconds on tickover.
Has anyone had a similar experience or can shed any light on this matter.
