My 2000 Echo's A/C didn't blow cold. It turns out the low side pressure was fine, but the compressor wasn't turning. I read somewhere that the A/C compressor's clutch eventually wears down so it doesn't grab the pulley anymore, and that sometimes removing spacers can move the clutch enough to allow it to grab. I took off the bolt on the compressor pulley and the spacer fell off. I put the bolt back on, and now I'm COOL!

:rofl2:

Hmmm, interesting... So, you basically are running your clutch without the spacer? Isn't the spacer needed to align the pulley with the belt?

Apparently not. The compressor engages when I turn the A/C on, disengages when I turn it off. No issues. Works like it is supposed to.
