Hi

air con regassed last year, worked ok, now not working at all - switch works, fan blows, A/C light comes on, but no change to engine revs at all, no 'draw' on power/revs; is it another regas or a leak/compressor gone? And if it a leak can it be done by the handy home mechanic or is it a garage job?
thanks
car is in UK

Hi there,

I feel that you have a leak in the system, what needs to be done first is to get a small charge of refrigerant inn the system with a leak detector dye, this will stain where the leak is, this is the industry standard for A/C leak detection, this really should be done by an A/C tech.

Thanks for that - I think when it was regassed last year it contained the dye so they should be able to find it - going to ring round and get some quotes

thanks again for your help
