    Question Air Con question

    Hi, I have a question about the air conditioning system in the astra G. Does anyone know if when you turn the air con on the fan in front of the heat exchanger kicks in straight away or not?

    I have checked to make sure that the clutch on the pump turns and engages which is does, I've spun the fan and it turns. I've checked the temp and when the air con is on it only drops a couple of degrees.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The fan will only come on to cool the gas when it gets hot. Depending ont he outside temp will depend on how long it takes for it to cut it

    Thanks for the reply, the fan doesn't come in even when the air con has been on for a long time and the cars up to normal running temperature.

    do you know if there is a relay for the air con or not?

    This will be part of the coolant control module

    you need to have the gas recovered first, then it's a DIY Swap.

    then you'll need it vacced and regased.
