Lotus Elise Air conditioning compressor relay replacement

Do Lotus Elise air conditioning compressor relays need to be replaced?

It comes down to comfort.

If you are in the habit of driving in your Lotus Elise’s air-conditioned comfort then this is a no brainer, you probably won’t survive the drive if the AC isn’t working.

When you switch the air conditioner on in your Lotus Elise you can usually hear a click, that is the compressor clutch operating.

If you don’t hear a click and have no A/C this is a good sign the relay needs replacing.

Avoid turning your Lotus Elise's A/C on and off continually. Electrical components generally don’t like being switched on and off repeatedly, as this can cause them to overheat and fail.

It is a fairly simple task to replace an air conditioning compressor relay but without the correct tools and knowledge, it will be easier to get the experts to do it.

When it comes to electrical work, you don’t want to get a jolt from the battery.

A technician will locate the relay box, usually found under the Lotus Elise's bonnet.

The old relay will be removed and the new relay installed and the system operation will be checked and cleared of faults.
