    new one will cost a small fortune mate, go for a 2nd hand unit, but you will need a full reg again afterwards,

    Sounds daft but I wa driving round for months with mine not working, it was on my list of to do (take to a garage and get sorted). Anyway when I was sorting my crank sensor I notices an electrical plug hanging and guess where it fit in to? Yup the compressor!

    So pluged it in started car and instant cold air!

    Just a thought :)

    I had my car for months without working AC until I finally got round to taking it to a mates garage to get re gassed

    He did that and changed the tiny filter or whatever it is thats in the pipe only to find whoever fitted it previously had put it in the wrong way around, new one in and its all working brillaintly again

    Might be worth a look

    Yes the cold air was freezing cold and nice
    then I start to hammer the car around

    A few bends and it went all hot
    so back down on the windows ...
    going to check for loose wires and plugs today
