    Default air con problem

    basicaly ive only had one car before with air con, on the way back from pvs on sunday, put on the air con, nothing happend not working. with the car i had before when on tick over, put on air con and engine dropped a few revs and you could hear the air con kick in. do the same with the vectra, nothing. ive only had the car four months, and its 3 years old on the 15th this month. so managed to get booked in for 12th, they say it just needs regasing, but i think its more involved than that, anyone else had this, plus whats coverd on the warenty, they dont seem to want to do it.

    Could just be a regas,all systems lose a bit naturally and they have a pressure switch so the compressor doesn't cut in and cause damage to its self if the gas is low.

    I had the same once before, Just needed a regas. I would personally shop around a few local specialists, rather than pay through the nose for dealer service!

    I think you'll find the regas isn't covered under warranty, but do not pay more than £60 for a regas.

    Just had same trouble with my signum (2.2 2005 new shape). Aircon not working, Taken to dealership for check reported gas low . regas and aircon service required quoted £80.00, said ok. Not covered by warranty. Then phone call saying that after regas found stone damage in condenser unit causing leak. additional quote £385.00 for replacement. Stuff it, Had to pay £80.00 for nothing. now got new condenser unit for £100.00 and fitting myself. (son works for local ford)

    i have had to have mine done twice now and its been done under warranty both times, just a re-charge both times too, questioned why it needed doing and was told it just looses gas naturaly, was also told if it happens again just phone em to book it in, apparantly the air-con needs to be used regulaly ie 10-15 mins per week min to keep it healthy.
    hope you get yours sorted and it doesnt cost you anything

    For future try and find an independant garage to regass it in the future, usually around the £50 mark

    well got my car back last night, just needed a regas, now working, mmmm chilled.
    not very impressed with dealer, monday dropped car off, had to arrange to be picked up by family, after being told the week before there were no loan car available until the 21st. guess what they say "do you still want the loan car", so i ask why i was told i wouldnt get a car, no reply.
    and then 3/4 of an hour befor picking it up i get a phone call asking if i want it regasing. the job it was booked in for.
