Hi all,

Checking the air con system before regassing, the air con compressor can easily be turned by hand but it does make a noise (see vid) - is this normal? Does this mean it needs replacing? Bearing in mind there is no gas in the air con system at all as the condensor is leaking so will be replacing that soon.

It is just the clutch that spins freely when engine not on. Perfectly normal.

Ideal we had an air con specialist look at the car and he thought the compressor might be worn due to the noise when you spin it
