Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I have not used the air conditioning for any great length of time in my ford mondeo (not Focus) mk3 2.0 petrol since last summer (except for 10mins each month just to keep it working)
Recently it works great for 5 minutes then stops working. If I turn it off and wait for 10 mins or so it works again but only for 5 mins!
I had it regassed last week at Kwik fit. This did not fix the problem and they could not help any further!
Any ideas what the cause could be? I am getting tired of sitting on the M1 in traffic, a little comfort would be air con so my trousers don't stick to my legs when it gets hot! Many thanks, Rich
Try to change washer between compressor and compressor clutch. This is very often problem in Mk3. After the time the clutch is thinner and needs also thinner washer. Hope it helps

If the temp is less than around 4 degrees the a/c disables itself to prevent damage. It may give you a few minutes to clear the front screen but then turns off.
