This spring my Lacrosse CXL 3.0l air conditioning decided to start acting funky. Pressures are 44 and 185 No cycling observed at gauges. Clutch never seems to disengage, wont even turn with engine off and key removed. Climate control doesn't cool the car adequately on the highway (moderate hit and miss cool air) and blows warm air in town even set on max cool. I'm no trained mechanic but would expect the clutch to be disengaged and turn with out using a cheater bar on it. Haven't tried that yet... Unless one of you more educated fellows can enlighten me, I'm looking at a compressor swap including dryer replacement and system flush. I've done it on my former Taurus SHO so it's not out of my skill set, I just flat out don't want to if i'm missing something simple if you know what I mean.
