On my 1997 900 (RIP) , the manual said that the AC is on even in winter, unless the temperature outside goes below 4 degrees Centigrade (about 40 Fahrenheit). So, the compressor is on anyway unless you live in a colder climate, where the temperature stays below freezing for longer periods of time. I'll have to read about this in the manual for my 1996 9000 Aero. And if the compressor comes on when the defroster on ( I do not remember seeing this in the manual, but sounds plausible), then that should provide for the exercise needed to keep AC operational too. -Dima "Louis James" <> wrote in message > > "Dave Hinz" <> wrote in message > >> On Mon, 20 Dec 2004 16:45:19 -0000, Louis James <> >> wrote: >>> this may appear to be a really dumb question but, never having A/C in a >>> car >>> before here goes >>> I have been told that to keep the ac in good running order I need to >>> occasionally put the temp setting right down ( 15-16 ) in winter for a >>> few >>> minutes so that it doesn't seize" up >>> is this right?? >> >> The compressor probably comes on when you put the windscreen defroster >> on. >> What year and model do you have? >> >> Dave Hinz > > Sorry its a 2002 93 2.2TDI >> > >
