Citroen Aircon Failures
Many Citroens are fitted with the Sanden SDV6V12 aircon pump. Sanden is a popular make amongst air conditioning compressors and this particular unit, the Sanden SD6V12, is an aircon compressor that is known to be a very common failing part. We now carry genuine OEM and after market replacement units in stock.
Common Air Conditioning Pump Problems
We have received countless Citroen air conditioning pumps here at Sinspeed, and have compiled a list of the most common problems that have been outlined by our customers which are listed below:
- Compressor Clutch Not Engaging
- No Cold Air (Even After Re-filling Aircon Gas)
- Grinding Noise When Pressing Aircon Button
- Unable to Discharge Gas
- Unable to Refill Gas
- Pressure Problems
- Electrical Faults
If you have looked around for a replacement aircon pump, you will have found that to purchase a brand new one from the dealer will work out to be very expensive. The alternative option would be to buy a second-hand used part which would work out to be much cheaper initially to buy, but this will more than likely only come with a 30-90 day limited warranty, and not knowing how many miles it has already covered or how well it was maintained by the previous owner, there will always be the chance for this common failing part to become faulty again.
