Re: air conditioning not working

Make sure the leaking you're hearing isn't the recirculating fan which sits under there (i.e: make sure you have your setting on outside air..) then check for the noise again..

Sounds like the compressor may have bit the bullet, thats to say you don't have a gas leak somewhere..

Re: air conditioning not working

hmm, well i recently got my air con fixed cos the seals were ratsh!t and it was long out of gas, and that was $400 or something i think. then i thought it was broken one day when i kept upping the fan speed but no matter what i did no air whatsoever came out of the vents, but i discovered it was set to windshield demister for some reason
