I was one of the unlucky ones wolf, i havent got A/C in mine, ive taken the black tape off the button thou to make it look more impressive
But if you havent got it think of it this way, its something that wont go wrong with your car,and how many really hot days in summer do we have? So to be honest i dont think its that important,but then again ive never had the privilage of driving a car with A/C
It actually dries the incoming air, so demisting takes seconds on rainy days, in the winter, it's the same story, but you can have warm DRY air.. no more steaming up. and on a hot day... well, I'm not }) Especially as our cars have a lot of soundproofing, which is like an insulated jacket.. and mine being black doesn't help.. it used to be on gas mark 9 before I fitted the A/C.
All in all, it's the best £1200 I ever spent on my car.
Ok sumthing else i learnt there John,i didnt no that it helps with the demisting at least i no now, i must admit my windows do take a while to de-mist!!
Well i think ill just put up with the heat and the dodgy steamed windows and that way ill keep outa more debt
The compressor is low down at the front Mark... still plenty of room, as the supercharger pulley goes at the top, with a shaft going across the front to the intake side of the engine where the supercharger fits.
I thought it ran off the same pulley although there is more than one type of S/C install. I have seen one that fits down where the compressor goes but I think the most popular is the top mount with the lay shaft.
Anyway in the manual it says to check the air conditioning/supercharger belt... and I took that to mean they were exclusive the first time I read it (and I read it more than once too as I thought I was seeing things )
