Not really, when they over gas the aircon system, this eases the weight of the car, making the front end lighter :rolleyes:

Thats service with thought

Its not just a case of topping up the system, it needs to be vac out, leak tested etc etc!!

ive got a 1000 mile drive starting on sunday, ive got no time off until then to get booked in anywhere so hoped for either a quickfit quickfix on saturday or using that halfords can just to get the aircon sorted, even if only temporary.

with aircon turned on its only slightly cooler than when aircon off




sorry to hijack the thread btw

You cant just top it up, the systems needs the correct grams of gas and oil. hence we suck it all out, vac the system, then refill the oil and gas to the correct amount.

I see where your coming from with the can of gas as a short term measure, but then you run the risk of over filling! it just goes on!!

The can has a pressure guage, if i knew what the system pressure should be i could fill to that i guess.

why is everything always so difficult :)

If the vagueness of the charge mass isn't enough to put you off using these cans, the presence of a leak sealer in there should dissuade you. This gunge ruins the (expensive!) machinery used to recover the refrigerant from the system.

If you do choose to use this gloop, please make sure you mark this fact on a sticker under the bonnet to warn any professional who might work on the system afterwards, to enable them to use appropriate filtering during recovery.

Best bet to go to someone who know what they are are doing than spending double. after my visit to SAM/UNIT on monday i am pleased I got my AC fixed. When I come out of Office today it was showing 39 degree in the car and AC got it nice and cool in no time at all...
