air con pump?
Hello. My mechanic has diagnosed a whining noise in my 159 as a buggered aircon pump. It does have that sort of worn bearing sound but these pumps are scarily expensive so obviously am hoping he's mistaken.
If not, I wondered if it's possible to bypass the pump in some way? If it is, will I still have a working heater? (I never press the snowflake button, never, because why would I? This is Ireland - it's flipping freezing all the time.)
And if it's not possible to bypass the pump, would it be the height of folly to get a second-hand one?
Thanks in advance
