Apparently due to lack of use, my aircon compressor has stopped working and is making a horrible graunching noise instead. From the archives at dsm.org I have found out that it is wise to use the aircon at least once a week whether you need it or not to keep the thing lubed up properly.

The compressor is driven off the main belt and apparently has a magnetic clutch. This setup means that I cannot simply disconnect the unit, but rather it is grinding away all the time. I have been told that it may just be the clutch that is broken.

Does anybody know anything about Mits aircon units? I'm hoping that the same basic unit is used in all Mitsubishis of similar vintage e.g Galant, Shogun etc. and that I can pick one up relatively easily. Where might I start looking?

Any feedback appreciated.
