air con compressor wanted urgently

Selling off one (or bits :o) of your XM collection, or perhaps searching for those elusive headlight washer covers? This is the place to do it.

You might ask Stickyfinger on FCF, he has broken a couple Xantia V6s, and is in your part of the world.
How has yours failed? I have never had a problem with one (and have owned 5 cars with this engine).

the clutch has packed up it made an awful noise when i engaged it for a second or two then when i did it again yesterday it didnt engage and is open circuit
the clutch spins freely enough though but the clutch solenoid is open circuit.

Might the clutch unit be available as a separate part?

Did you measure for continuity at the clutch itself, or are you relying on the Lexia diagnosis? The Lexia will report an open circuit clutch if the refrigerant pressure switch has tripped.
