Hello. I just purchased a 2010 fusion hybrid with AC not working. I noticed it does not have a clutch and belt it seems more like an electric compressor of some sort. Tried googling but could not find help there. Can I get help on where to start on finding out why cold air is not coming out? Thanks.

The compressor is driven by a high voltage electric motor.  Check the cabin air filter.  They get unbelievably dirty.

This is probably a Ford dealer repair. It's going to cost you a lot. If it's the AC evap. sensor, here's a work around: http://www.instructables.com/id/Quick-fix-workaround-Ford-Fusion-AC-evap-sensor/

The filter looked good. But looks like my connector wires seem to have a different color the the ones posted by lolder. I have pics of my connector colors saved to my desktop but unable to attach them to this message. Can someone guide me on this because all i see is  a green 'image' icon asking for a url. Thanks

You have to determine what the problem is before you start to repair it. It may not be the sensor mentioned. That sensor was a problem in older Fusions.

Take it to Ford or a reliable shop for diagnosis. This is not backyard mechanic reparable except for the work around above. The compressor is high voltage and expensive and needs special refrigerant.

You can also get a good quality OBD scanner such as the OBDLink MX that can read the MS-CAN bus and the free https://forscan.org/ software and see the actual temperature the sensor is sending.
