Old airconditioning

When an older cars air con runs outa gas and needs regassing. Do they just regass it or does some more work need doing.

Not sure if a place I went to today was trying to rip me off. He said it would be about 65 bucks to regass it but being an older car would probably need modernising which would probable be about 300 odd.

Re: Old airconditioning

If it is a system that used the old freon based gas, yes that sounds about right.
In order to convert they have to install a pressure cut out switch amongst other things. No doubt someone who knows more about air con could advise but it may be better to consider a more modern rotary compressor as well if you are running the old ford style.
