    Default Air Con / Warranty Qn

    booked in the stealers this week (under warranty) as the air con does not work, cannot tell any difference through the vents when its switched on...apart from a sound (sounds like someone is blowing though a straw) anyway my question is even if it needs re-gassing is it still under cover ? my argument being if its a leak-pipe-seal problem, or even compressor it should be covered ? I will make it clear before I hand over the keys that I want informing if its chargable, as imo (tell me if i am wrong here) air con should never need service unless it fails/leaks.

    also wanted a rattle sorting on my door, no chance they said as its only covered for the 1st 12 months, & my gear knob came off in my hand again today quite fancy a VXR one....

    You will need a re-gas and the is NOT covered under warranty. No point in arguing with them over it as the gas is classed as a consumable.

    My sister in law had a similar issue with her Corsa SXi+, the air con was not right and she had to pay for a re-gas at 2 years old.

    Regarding the rattle, your dealer is right, rattles and trim faults are only covered for the forst 12 months.

    I had a faulty gearknob selector on my Astra and the whole shift mechanism needed to be replaced, I got a VXR one and paid the difference of £6.00!

    I have just had to have the air con re-gassed after 3yrs you may of sustained stone damage on your condenser,this possibly causing a slow leak which also will not be covered on your warranty.

    You will always pay for an air-con recharge simply because they are recharging it with gas and they do eventually need done, a good way of prolonging the life of the air-con system is to run it for a period of time even in the winter to keep everything flowing nicely.
