Re: XF Aircon Help Needed

My brothers 87 XF has a problem with the aircon, it's cold and works well it just doesnt work for long, for example it will work when turned on for about 30 seconds then it throws itself out for about 15 seconds, then click and it's back on again cold as ever, I gather this must be activated by some kind of thermostat which throws the aircon clutch in and out when it reaches a set temp, how can this be repaired or adjusted so the aircon isnt clicking on and off several times a min as with the current setup the car never gets really cold and the cold air isnt blowing long enough.
Just wondering when you mean the Aircon cuts out, is the fan still running or does the fan die out as well?
