    Default Air con hissing me off

    Hello all,

    Hoping someone can help, I have a 57 Vectra, Exclusiv and the air con has stopped working. It was ok last week but when I turn it on now it just hisses at me and continues to do so. The air does not get cold.

    Now it wasn't working when I got the car, so the garage re-gassed it for me which sorted the problem.

    Also the 3 month warranty that came with the car has run out but I was wondering, should it still be covered by the Vauxhall 3 year warranty?

    Thanks in advance.

    If it's still under VX warranty then try a VX dealer.

    The AC on my Astra was faulty at purchase the VX dealer wanted to charge me £70 for a diagnostic and regass before they'd even consider a repair under warranty. After a few polite words and a letter to the manager they fixed it for free. We'd been a regular customer of the dealer having bought several cars from them over the years.

    If you can't get a warranty fix then just try one of the many specialist AC companies out there.

    I know the seals tend to dry out of the AC is not used for long periods, the gas then escapes.

    Sgt, Had a similar prob with my 06 Exclusiv but got mine gassed and it's still working 4 months on (touch wood)

    3 month warranty?

    How long has it been since you had it gassed up?

    Exclusive,

    It was re-gassed about 2 months ago.

    I bought the car from a Lookers and they said it came with a 3 month warranty from them.
