  • Air Con Leak

    Ok, so i went to Kwik-fit today to get my air con recharged. so they put it on the machine and the machine has detected a leak and there is no fluid in my car what so ever Does anyone know how much i will have to pay vauxhall or some other specialist to fix this?

    Very hard to answer this question, all depends on where the damage is

        u will want to hope its a dodgy pipe or something simple cos otherwise it can prove very expensive to repair !! .. mine wasnt working a few months ago and had it re gased and there was a hole in one of the pipes .. cost me £150 just for the hose !!

            if its the compressor then you wont get much change from £1000,drive in drive out at main dealer..but hay it could be just an o-ring at say £100 including fitting and regas..?

              Its a 55 plate so no warranty. I hope its not £1000 i cant afford that kind of money just for air con. If it is that do i have to get it fixed will it mess up anything else in the car?

                nah it wont affect anything else if you dont fix it

                my mate removed his a/c to save on weight as the compressor is surprisingly heavy

                  Have a look at the bottom of the condenser, the bottom falls off on the 1.9 cdti. Common fault on the diesels.
