    Default Air con hissing through vents?

    I had the air con filled about a week ago at vauxhall.
    When i switch the air con on its hissing through the vents and definitely not cold as cold as it was after it was topped up, the compressor and fan do still switch on any idea what the problem might be?

    The car is a 57 plate 1.9CDTI elite with climate control.

    You've lost gas from somewhere. I'm assuming it was done on warranty as you went to Vauxhall. As above could be a condensor as they are liable to damage from stones and debris.
