    Question My latest drama.. the air con

    Im having a problem, the air con compressor kicks in but it doesnt get cold.

    I've not looked into it yet, was just after a point in the right direction. Is there a valve in the refrigerant lines to test its pressure? Are their any common failing areas on a 2006 1.8 sri?

    Many thanks.

    Yeah i would agree.

    I had an astra a few years back, someone told me if it needed a re-gas the aair con would not work at all.

    Turned out they were wrong. It took a lot to refill again, and was giving exactly the same symptoms.

    Try shopping wround though. I found a local 'air conditioning specialists' charging a lot more than a local garage.

    According to the handbook if it's below a certain temperature outside, the aircon is designed not to work, maybe worth waiting until you have a warmer day.
