1989 300SE Clutch not engaging on compressor
Hi all, this is my first post. So apoligies if i have posted it in the wrong area. Iíve only just bought my first a 1989 300SE Mercedes. I just recently joined the Mercedes car club Victoria, Australia and looking forward to taking her out on some club runs once I have fixed a few little issues. Everything on the car works well except for the air con. I checked last night and can confirm that when I turn the A/C ON, the compressor clutch is not activating. The question I have is, if the car is low on A/C gas which Iím nearly 100% sure it is, does this prevent the compressor from switching ON via a small sensor? Everything else works well; fan, heater etc all good and it will blow normal cold air from outside no problems. I can also confirm that the car has been switched over to run the current gas and does not run on the old type.
