Air con compressor failed. Again.
I hope no one else on here has suffered the same. This evening I turned off the engine and my heart sunk when I heard the familiar grinding of the air con compressor. About 18 months ago the crank pulley went on my 159 which was then followed by the air con compressor about a month later. At the time the two events were linked. However about 7 months ago the damn thing went again when pulling away quickly on a roundabout. It took weeks for a replacement part to be sourced (and it's reconditioned) but thankfully was done under manufacturers warranty. I now need to call the good guys at Pro Alfa and deliver the bad news that the third compressor has gone bang.
