    Default 2006 Vectra C Air Con Fault

    My air con has stopped getting cold despite being re-gassed recently. The system was pressure tested and the garage couldn't find any leaks.

    If I turn the air con on, for a minute or hours, it doesn't get cold but when I turn it off I cet a clicking/ticking noise from behind the glove box (I had the fan unit replaced last year because of water damage caused by enging an bay drainage blockage near the pollen filter)

    Does this mean my compressor needs replacing too? I have 2.2 petrol direct with climate control (7 speed fan)

    When you turn you AC on do the engine revs dip as the pump kicks in? There have been a couple of people had issues with the clutch burning out on the compressor pump.

    No changes in engine revs, but that's always been the case even when air con has been working

    OK, I've been doing some playing and a little bit of digging and I think the clicking is actually coming from the recirc motor. I've only recently had the fan blower motor and assembly replaced and guessing it needed this as well.

    Once thats done I guess I'll have to get air con regassed again and see how long it lasts - hopefully longer than 6 weeks this time
