    Default "02 Scenic Aircon problem

    Hi all,
    Searched but cant find anything about this. My 02 scenic with climate control was going wonderfully until this morning, now there seem sto be no cold air from the outlets only warm, and I dont really get the same "Click" of the compressor solenoid thing that I used too

    are there any fueses that control the compressor on/off or has the comepressor seized/or actuator seized

    Any thoughts

    BTW this car has had the air con fan replaced about a year ago, with the thermatic switch

    Or it could be a sudden leak of gas - low pressure will stop the compressor engaging.

    Need some Ro80 parts? Or know anyone in Adelaide who can rescue this?

    Sorry can't help with the AC, but which Ro80 do you have? There aren't many around and we have a club for orphans - maybe you are already a SIVA member?

    Have recently had the same problem with my 2001 Scenic.

    Have it diagnosed by someone reputable as in a full check. My comp isn't pumping anymore but the system is holding full gas load and not leaking.

    The compressor's valves die, VR/S{?} Commodores had serious problems and I even think there was a recall for compressor refits.

    There is a supplier in Sydney who can supply a new one for $400 as opposed to Renaults $900-$1000.
