A/C no longer getting cold

Asked by Apr 27, 2016 at 01:44 AM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can hear the compressor kick on; the freon is completely full; fans working.  
Does the compressor have a clutch? Could that be the issue?

If the compressor is kicking on that should mean your clutch is working. Check to make sure your blend door is working.

Do you know where I can find detailed instructions of how to replace it? I've search all over the web and keep getting directed to other vehicles that have nothing to do with my PT Cruiser. Video would be awesome. I don't even know where to begin to look where the blend door is located to replace it. Thank you.

It is under the dash normally on the passenger side. I could not find videos but here is a link for a image that may help you. https://www.google.com/search? q=pt+cruiser+blend+door+location&newwindow=1&espv=2&rlz= 1C1AVNG_enUS645US645&tbm=isch&imgil=phVgSHeNTV79jM %253A%253BCWUdY7dt7ddPvM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F %25252Fwww.ptcruiserlinks.com%25252Fforum%25252Fgener al-pt-cruiser-discussions%25252F43327-ac-vent- door.html&source=iu&pf=m&fir=phVgSHeNTV79jM%253A%252 CCWUdY7dt7ddPvM%252C_&usg=__UBSI0Qm7sp21S9CHRTs uWdTWksA%3D&biw=1360&bih=643&ved=0ahUKEwjlxK6ahLrM AhXouoMKHWGBA8QQyjcINw&ei=m5EmV6WLIej1jgThgo6gDA #imgrc=phVgSHeNTV79jM%3A
