2004 Jaguar X-Type Q&A

2004 Jaguar X-Type Question: AC issues

Ok, so my AC was working intermittenlty. I took it to a shop and they were going to do diagnostic and refill the freon. Based on the specs, my car needed to be at 1.25, but it was already at 1.4. He said it was overfilled and that there was another problem. So, I then took it to the dealership and they then told me I needed a new copressor, accumulator, and hoses. Basically, $2300.00. Now, the AC doesn't work at all. Is there something I can do to verify that I do actually need a new compressor. I've already spent $236 to go from my AC working sometimes to not working at all. Any suggestions? -

Answer 3
Put the ac on the highest and coldest setting. let it run for a few minutes, open hood and you should feel a blast of air from the fans. If not then the fan regulator is going. it is attached to the slam panel. Look down in front of the radiator and it is on the right. -
