Car Air Con
#1
Right - first problem on the Galaxy, Aircon is now almost non-existant - just blowing "air temperature" air...

Not nice today when collecting a supplier from the station in my "Greenhouse-axy"

So - do I take it to a kwik-fit type place for a re-gas and cross my fingers, or am I looking at enforcing Mr-Warranty into action....?

Im reading some normal stories, and some horror £1k fix jobbies.........  Sad

I dont like the heat........ which is why I dont work in a kitchen.

Try a re-gas first mate.

I had to have my air con unit replaced for about £700 some years ago. Dont work now so just open the windows.... Wink

Theres a few receipts here for a pipe and regass etc - will check the date(s)

Im learning that the Galaxies are proned to it.

For £700, Id rather open my 6 windows...........  Wink

Mind you, I have the warranty and aircon pump is covered! However, fighting for it is another matter.

Private dealer warrantys are worth jack. 95% of the time it will be a pipe or the condensor itself thats gone. If a regas wont hold pressure they inject a die as well so you can spot where the leak is.

I'm fully expecting warranty hassle, I know they ain't worth the paper they are written on half the time.

I'll ring them tomorrow first to see what my options are.

I've found a local mobile regasser, he also does leak tests. will ring him too for a quote.

Odd that it was ok when you tested it before buying and has just suddenly died. I think they have all used the same gas for 10+ years, you can even get kits in Halfords but if Nigel cant help then go to somewhere to do it who wont charge you any/full amount if it has a leak
