Hello JayTyler,I have a 2012 1.4 that I can't use the a/c because it shakes the whole car from engine vibration.
For the last 2 years I haven't been able to use the a/c over the 2nd fan speed or the fan stays on until I shut the car off and unhook the battery cable. I used the a/c on a 6 hour trip in May and as soon as I got home the water pump started puking dexcool. I replaced the water pump for the 4th time, and also swapped out the belt tensioner this time. Now I can't use the a/c at all because the compressor causes the whole car to shake when it kicks on. It's a similar shake as if the engine mounts are bad but they're not and they're torqued correctly. Is this a compressor issue? 2012 1.4 RS, 84k miles.
