I have a 2007 Honda CRV and after about 15 mins the AC will stop working.
Before the AC will start to work again, the care must be turned off for a few hours.
Took it to a car shop to have it looked at and they said the refrigerant should be fine. They also said they can't tell what the problem is. So now I'm trying to diagnose this myself.
I've checked that it is not the relays (by swapping similar ones around).
The car has 1 belt that connects the Alternator and AC Compressor; but I don't know how to check if the AC clutch is engaging or not.
If the clutch is NOT engaging, what would be the cause of that?
If the problem is the clutch, is it possible to replace just the clutch? I've seen that the clutch can be bought seperately and is it "wise" to do that, or should I just get a new compressor?
So far the only things I'm aware of that the problem could be is: refrigerant, the relays, or the compressor.
Is there anything else I should be trying to diagnose?
