The A/C doesn't work on my Espace, and although its not important at the moment, I'd like to spend some time checking out the possible causes before jumping in at the deep end come summer :d.

I will check the fuses, but I think they are ok. The light on the control panel lights up, but the condenser doesn't 'click' like it does on the Laguna. Normally there is also an associated slight drop in revs which come back up to normal straight away but I'm not getting any of that either.

What should I check first, how should I check it, and what would be the most likely culprit?

Help appreciated.

I know on the laguna, the A/C don't work unless is 5 deg. C or above outside, It may be the same for the Espace.
Also, it will shutdown if it's low on gas.
Most Aircon specialists will carryout a free check, so maybe worth locating one if you can.

PS. Don't use the stealer's, unless you really have to

Thanks for that Stu.

I know most if not all A/C won't work unless the outside temp is above a certain minimum - I think it's 3 degrees but I could be wrong.

I have tried it at around 8 degrees but still no luck.

I think, as you've suggested, my 1st port of call should be an air-con specialist for a free check up.

Stealers will be a verry very last resort! lol

Cheers.

A/C not working

We have a 54 plate Diesel Megane sport Tourer had it since new and has just come out the main dealer for the tenth time since October o4. This time it was a warning light on dash saying check injection. The dealer said it was glow plugs, they replaced the four of them (or so they say!!!) phew under warranty! The second problem was the Air Con not working. They re-gased the unit and put a dye in to see if it was leaking, they said it was not and charged us £117 for the pleasure. Three days later, I don't think it is working!!!
Oh the Joys of a sport tourer!!
