    Default Aircon blowing hot!

    Well time had come to finally put ac on for first time in a long time and it won't blow cold! It's colder to not have aircon on, just the fan!

    Is this a sign on a regas? I does make a hissing/whining when ac button is pressed in

    Any ideas how much?

    If you've not had it on in ages then the seals have probably failed and it has no gas left.

    Btw I drive with mine on all the time and it doesn't affect the mpg much. Not had an issue yet.

    Mines is needing regassed i think as it's blowing cold air but not as cold as it should be. I haven't priced anywhere but kwik-fit are advertising air con servicing on the radio for £49.00.

    I asked that same shop for a price for my Signum. The twenty quid price is only to tempt you in, the actual price he wanted was nearer £40. Phone him first as the only guy qualified/registered to do the regass is not always there.

    The awkward part on this one is knowing the aircon has not been used in a long while - that could very easily the seals drying out and leaks there.
    However, if the car has been in use during that time there is just as much chance the condenser has taken damage (as they always do) and could well be leaking there. If the aircon had been working perfectly and had just become warm, I would go straight for the condenser. Sadly in this case with a choice of probable faults,it may pay to get an aircon specialist to test and diagnose the system first, then do any work yourself before having it regassed.
