United Kingdom
England 2010 air con fault

This might be simple fault but here goes
2010 mini one heater works ok
Put the air con switch on a cluck is heard and engine noise changes, I presume the condenser is doing something
No fan comes on therefore it doesn't go cold

I have had the gas checked all ok
I have read about fuses and relays
Anyone know where to start without going into main dealers ?

Thanks anyone

Hi beanz I am a mini tech, that clunk u are feeling is ur a/c pump which is ran but your pollu v belt. If your not getting cold air the most common failure on r56 models is the condensor which is like a rad info of the coolant rad. Check for it being wet even though the rest of the car is dry.

Also how did u confirm you had enough air con gas?
