I can't seem to find a diagram for my 1987 factory a/c. I don't have a Bentley manual at the moment. Can a nybody help me out with a wiring diagram and/or schematic? I have 4 wires hanging loose in my engine compartment, and the relay closest to the rear of the van is missing with all 4 wires cut. The condenser fan is rigged up to a switch under the dash. I just want to be able to power the compressor and not burn the van down.....right now there is a wire connected to the replacement compressor, but it's not engaging. PO was not an electrician.....

Great, thanks. I am terrible at reading wiring diagrams, but this at least gives me something to go on. The notes are perfect for what I'm trying to do, which is get 12 volts to the compressor clutch.

I really appreciate it!

On a side note, is it just me or does the page numbering make zero sense? 97-134 is after 97-231, which comes just after page 25 of the self-service section which is about 200 pages into the middle of the manual. Section 97 comes before section 57.

Is there an art to finding the right section without flipping through every page? Maybe I'm the village idiot and too dense to realize it??

^^^ If you're asking about the PDF version, yeah it's definitely a PIA & that's
just the way it is. (Sometimes free online is free for a reason)... Evil or Very Mad

Pull out your wallet & pick up a pristine new Bentley ASAP...you'll love it! Cool
