Hi, I am new to Bimmerfest and a noob. :( I use my E90 in UK where you don't use Air con every day. My aircon didn't work so I topped up gas, but still doesn't work. I checked the connector on top of compressor and it has 12V so apparently compressor is not working. One of my mates got an e46 compressor. I am wondering if compressor in 318i E46 and 320i E90 interchangeable? Is it interchangeable with any other model?

Guessing if you have power to the compressor, you're saying it's not working, but that's a broad stroke. Dig deeper!

Code thrown?

I completely understand that diagnostics will be a good start. But I don't have any malfunction lights on IP. I am trying to fix it cheap if possible and I don't like to give it to small garages... I am guessing if the inlet and outlet are same size/dia I can use other versions of compressor like E46...?

There are no cheap AC fixes.
