Ac issue
« on: June 19, 2017, 11:51:41 AM »
Ac wasn't working...out of gas.

Just had it recharged and about an hour later the driver side is starting to come out warm and the centre is passenger is cold but not as cold as before.

I knew there must be a leak before I had it regassed and I informed them.  The did a leak test with a dye and all was well.

Sounds like it.  Needs a better dye test done.  It might be coming from a tricky to get at position.  Though if it is losing gas that fast it should show up easily enough now.  A simple pressure check by them will show whether it is holding and if not then they need to look for it.

I have found the part number through Realoem....thanks

Looks like there are different sizes for the condenser depending on what make u go for.

Would they all fit?
