After David Rutherford's recent experience, one of the very first things I'd check is the auxiliary drivebelt....... before flicking the aircon switch.

Yes that sounds like a good idea!

Didn't flick it on on my way home becuase of an experience from my cx. When I bought it I had to drive it around 200 miles to my home. It was quite warm so I turned on the aircon and it instantly rewarded me with a cabin full of smoke! The damage was not anywhere near as bad as what you refer to as the ac-pumb was stuck and therefore the belt that drove it got very warm and snapped. Even though that was the only damage I didn't fancy trying it again so i kept my fingers away...

Will check the belt before I test the aircon. Thanks for the tip.

If it's factory-fitted aircon there shouldn't be any pulleys like the one which caused David's problem - there are none on mine, which has aircon transplanted from another BX.
