    Default Air Con issue / advice

    hi everyone.

    I've a few questions regarding my Air Con.

    I've just noticed that it no longer seems to blow out cold air.


    I initially thought that it might need recharging.

    However, i've since realised that there now doesn't appear to be any difference in the engine noise/revs that there used to be when it was initially switched on. ????

    Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    i know Kwik-fit do the AC recharging, but i'd rather take it elsewhere before i let loose the K-F monkeys on it.

    So, if anyone could also recommend someone in the Glasgow / Hamilton area, that would also be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks

    They use a plug & play machine, which a monkey can quite easily manage to use.

    Engine revs not dropping because low pressure switch not allowing compressor to cut in, i.e not enough gas. Like Big Dave says all these machines are similar and very easy to use. We have one at out garage. They simply recover gas, vacuum system and test, then charge with correct amount of gas

    So, just to clarify.......

    I won't hear a dip or change in the engine noise because there is very little or no gas in the system.

    Hopefully it just needs a recharge and fill up then.



    Does anyone know if there are any garages in Glasgow (or surrounding areas) that'll do it for less than the £50 average ?

    That's right m8. it isn't always that simple though. Regassing is always the first thing to be done afterwhich if air con still does not work other components need to be checked. This is where it can get tricky (and expensive)
