Question about 2003 Renault 181
My Renault Laguna is 1.6 1998 model. When I switch air conditioning on, there appears constant clutching and unclutching - every 2 or 3 minutes. Cooling is OK, but I notice speed change of fan on every clutching.
I went to service where I was told that this is engine overload protection which works only on higher revs to assure engine will not lose power on "full throttle", and that this shouldn't make any problem.
But I had two big problems in 1,5 months: belt tensioner bearing failure and than generator bearing failure! Now I don't trust enugh to serviceman comments and I will not have approach to alternatevie repair shop in next month.
Is somebody familiar with this problem? Thanks.
Fan speed is normal ,bearings on fan belt and generator is just wear and tear caused by high mileage or constant driving through big puddles and the plastic guard covers are missing
