Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
Posted by Anonymous on
The AC is driven by a pulley pulled by the serpentine belt. When the AC is switched on an electrical clutch engages the driven pulley with the AC compressor on the same shaft. If the AC compressor is frozen up the pulley will not turn when the AC is switched on and the belt will squeal as it is pulled over the static pulley wheel. If, when the AC is switched on, the pulley wheel continues to spin then it is likely that the electrical clutch is not engaging. It is much more often the case that the clutch fails before the AC seizes. If this is the case check out the AC fuse and clutch relay. The fuse can be inspected visually and the relay can possibly be inter- changed with one that is similar (windscreen wiper or electric windows). The relay should make a 'click' that can be heard when the AC is switched on. Put the suspect relay into a circuit that you know is working in order to check it.
