AirCon stopped working - Where is the sight glass ?
had the A/c serviced a couple of years ago and it was working beautifully last summer. The other day I turned it on and just ambient temp. I have had the A/c dismounted and twisted to push out of the way while working on something else, so not sure if I've created a leak, or broken the 12v wire to the compressor clutch.
Mine is JDM import and my manual (US) shows a sight glass as step 1 for checking gas. I can't find it.
Is there a way to tell if the compressor is spinning ? ie 12v has engaged the clutch. Perhaps resting your hand on the outside when someone turns it on, a difference can be felt ? I presume the compressor heats up normally, but that may be hard to attribute since the turbo / downpipe is nearby.
I also have seen some hits where people have said only works on Max fan or only on Recirc, I have not checked my settings, but other cars don't seem to require that.
Any tips ? thanks
