Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

If the clutch on the compressor is locked up, no. It will burn up belt. If the compressor is locked up but clutch/pulley still spins, yes you can drive it but you won't be able to use defroster, when you turn on defroster the A/C kicks on to de-humidify
