I have a 2000 Alize, 16 valve etc., and had the aircon regassed at Kwikfit as it wasn't working too well. No charge as they failed to improve matters although apparently the compressor works OK as does the fan. The coolant was about 1/2 full, now it's 100% full. Any ideas where I go next (apart from changing the car)?

Hi Blind - did they just do a regas or was it serviced - apparently the seals tend to dry out when the gas goes low or it hasn't been used for a while and the seals need a lubricant to work properly. There are a number of posts on this forum - I suggest you do a search and see if any of the info., is helpful.:)

Madnoel - it was a regas. The aircon works after a fashion, ie it clears condensation. The coolant was low, so maybe seals have dried out. All the tests seemed OK, and eventually they got 700cc fluid in, which it requires. Couldn't find much info on the forun tho'
