Hello & Welcome to the Forums Zoey.

Someone might be able to advise you on your aircon prob who has more technical knowledge than myself.

Hi,

can you give a little more detail as to the problem including the regassing. Do you hear the air con kick in. If you open the bonnet with engine running and get someone to swich the air con on and off, you should hear it click on. If this occurs its not the fuse.

When it was re gassed did this just involve a top up or did the gargae remove the old gas, in which case they should have known how much was in the car, this may help indicate a leak. Did they then re fill the system and inject a dye. If so then its is easier to then check if the gas is leaking from the system. The modern equipment evacuates the gas still remaining, measures it, and then holds a vacuum, good for getting moisture out and may indicate a leak, it then fills the system with new gas, lubricating oil and dye, to assit in detecting a future leak.

I had my car in at the weekend and the mechanic allowed me to view all and explained everything as he did mine. The problem I had was the system only had 295g of gas and not the recommended 550 but never the less he followed through the whole procedure. Everything works a treat now.

The first thing he did was to check the air con did switch on and did it by opening the bonnet and got me to switch air con off and on. He then let me hear and it was ovious it was switching on. Hope this helps.
