Hi Everyone

The A\C on my Megane was regassed last year this time, it worked perfectly. Earlier this year my turbo charger blew and the car ended up standing for 6 months.

After fixing that almost a month ago the A\C doesnt work. It is blowing air but not cold. What strikes me as odd is, i cant hear the clicking sound from the engine compartment when the aircon clutch is meant to engage.

I checked the fuses which looked fine. No error lights or messages are displayed..

Could it be an error code thats preventing the A\C from turning on??

Thanx for reading.

You need an AC guy to connect some gauges and see what pressure is in there. No pressure or very low pressure means you have a leak and the compressor won't come on.

If it had leak detection dye added when it was regassed you can try looking for green dye on the pipework / condenser to show evidence of a leak. You can also inspect the AC pipework looking for evidence of leaks which often show up as oily residue which then attracts dirt.
