  • Air con

    Been on course today and got in my car at lunch time. Temps were at 34 when I got in. Turned air con on to the 2nd setting as it was boiling and heard like clicks coming through the vents.. The cold air came through as normal shortly after.. This is the first time I've used it!

    Hope I haven't screwed it up!

      Hope it werent the pipe cracking.

      I always think it's best to switch the aircon on weekly or every few weeks just to keep the pipes flowin nicely.. Ppl start their cars regularly to prevent damage so why not do the same to the parts lol

        The manual says to do it monthly which will help stop it breaking.

              the main pipe that breaks is the one u can see from dwn by the turbo vauxhall have modified this pipe now replacing the metal piece that breaks with a hose the retail at £240 only other thing i've see break on the aircon is the pump but seems to be very rare...

                  You should run your air con every now and then to keep the system lubricated so you don't leak or loose any refrigerant.

                      So the one you sold me WAS the old pipe as it's still got the metal section which you knew when I asked you the question on eBay.... :/
