Re: Air con

If you have a snowflake, you have A/C.

Re: Air con

My local garage (the mechanics had just done an air-con course - which was nice) re-gassed my aircon on my Stilo 2 months ago (still waiting for the bill ) but reckoned it wouldn't be all expensive even though they described my system as having less 'gas' in it than a chat show host
Oddly enough, with the aircon on the heater is much more effective. Nice thing to have a working heater now winter is rapidly approaching

If you do get cold air but not very much (i.e the fan doesn't work very well either) then it might be nothing more than a blocked pollen filter.

Don't forget to use the Forum 'SEARCH' tool to check out other possible faults

Re: Air con

If your air con is working then you KNOW you have air con so that's easy once you experience it but if you buy a car with defunct air con it's also easy to get confused and convince yourself your air con is working - or maybe not Thing is, when you hit the snowflake the interior fan comes on and air coming in is pretty cool this time of the year too so it's easy to kid yourself

Simplest way to tell is to check your compressor pulley because if your compressor isn't going around then your air con isn't working at all. Easy to get confused with that too though as the outside of the compressor pulley goes around all the time the engine is running. When you select air con with the snowflake button the compressor clutch should engage with a loud "clack" and the interior of the compressor pulley will start rotating as well.

If the compressor's not going ( a pressure switch will stop the compressor clutch engaging if the system pressure isn't right) then you need to get your system checked and serviced. Fiat or any good air con engineers can do this for you. Look in yellow pages. Prices range from 60-100 pounds. They'll be able to check whether you have leaks in the system and give you a full system vaccuum and recharge

Re: Air con

my aircon went stupid in the summer, turned out to be the tempreature control flap had snapped so he glued it back together but now it's either snapped again or it's stuck. a way of telling this is if your blowers seem a bit pathetic, i can't feel anything blowing out of mine when it's on 2 and 3 is a bit weedy as well.
