My Mini Pajero AC compressor is not working

My car has 300000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hey there. If the motor appears to be running, but is not providing compressed air, then this is a sign that the reed valves or the piston rings are worn out. If the motor is not running, there may be damage to the wiring or the motor itself. Parts are not widely available for these units, and they are considered "throw-away". You will need to find a "fix-it" source who can repair it otherwise. If you would like to have this looked at by an expert first, a qualified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the vehicle and advise you on repairs.
