    Are the dealers the best place to get your aircon serviced/recon'd?

    every 2 years roughly I think is a good idea because it gets less effective over time. Kwik Fit do it that if your vent temperature doesn't go down by at least 10% then they don't charge you for it. Think its about £45 there.

    it doesnt blow cold = cant hear the compressor clicking in and out when ac used

    best thing is to still use your ac throughout the year as they add an additional lubricant that protects the seal and pipes etc - if its not used then the seals can dry out/crack and leak - and then its time to fork out money
