    Default Air-con done

    Well got the car to the dealers this afternoon for them to look at the air-con (or lack of !) and after parting with £90 (just to re-gas it !) i'm now ready for all that blazing ball can throw at me.

    Turns out that the system had very very little gas left in it and re-gasing isn't covered on the warrenty. Just hope if it's leaking, it empties itself before July when the cover has expired .

    Also took the chance to get some flatblade wipers and a new Irmy badge !

    Now..... BRING ON THE HEATWAVE !

    £90 :S... plenty of garages round here advertising a charge at half that .. rip off main dealers again .

    anyone had any good results with the DIY can / gauge affair from Halfrauds ..circa £35 I think..

    Be ready for it to go again, twice mines been dye and filled in one yr, it's either a fault in the seals, OR Vx have told the dealers to gas and lie to the customer, because both times mine had no leaks detected.

    Once i'm out of warrenty if it goes again, i'm gonna diy it with a £20 kit next time, or exercise my right of repair under the already reported/fixed faults ruling.

    Yes, the dye was added. If the system leaks, the dye is picked up under a black light showing exactly where the leak is coming from.

    I know you can get it done cheaper by not going to the dealer but i was kinda "hoping" i wouldn't be charged as the car is out of manufacturers warrenty in mid July (3yrs old), they said if there is a leak they'll replace the faulty part free even if it goes past July ( within reason !) but i'll be charged for a re-gas again.
