    sounds electrical if the pumps not doing anything at all, check the fuses, make sure everythings plugged in properly to start with.

    Probably the clutch on the compressor, quite a common fault. This can be changed on it's own but most places replace it as a whole item

    New compressor from VX around £300 plus fitting.

    I got a second one for £60 of Ebay then got it fitted and serviced by a local aircon specialist for £120.
