    Default Does my AC need a regas or is it more involved

    Hi
    I bought a 56 plate Signum about a month ago with just 18000 miles on the clock. I noticed that there was a hissing noise that got louder and suddenly stopped every few minutes, I soon worked out that this noise was the AC. After frequent use of the AC this hissing seems to only happen on switch on and just now and again whilst driving so I think things are improving, however, the AC is generally quite noisy. Another strange thing is that the drivers far right vent is nice and cold but the vents gradually get warmer as they move towards passengers side but if I close both drivers vents the passenger vents become nice and cold, also the AC struggles when the fan is on high.
    If I assume this is not normal, do you think a regas will sort the problem, or is it more involved.
    I have 12 months networkQ warranty, but I'm not sure if this is covered.

    Trouble is I bought the car in luton and I live in Wakefield so it will be cheaper to go to kwikfit than pay for the fuel. Did you have the same symptoms and was it fixed with a re-gas?

    It should be covered under warranty - It's not even 3 years old yet, never mind the Network Q warranty

    I'll ring them tomorrow.

    I was unsure because it does blow cold just not everywhere. I wondered if vauxhall AC was always like that.

    if its got a network q then any network q garage can look at it, not just the supplying one.

    he said it doesn't need a re gas as he's checked it. So if he is right its parts so should be covered.
