Hello,
Sorry if this has been posted before, but I searched on Air & Air-Con with no results.
My Air-con/climate control isn't working very well. I had the car serviced about 18 Months ago & had the pollen filters changed & the Air re-gassed.
Now when I need it, it's rubbish. Any idea's? I called the Stealer & they said bring it in for a check, it's not like their going to say "oh dear we forgot to tighten the nut"
Can any body tell me where to locate the gas filler connection please?

Depending on your mileage and location, it is just possible you need to change the pollen filter again, but unlikely in just 18 months.

I'd go to an independent aircon specialist for a thorough check and leak test. No point in regassing it if you've got a leak somewhere.

Some systems can go wrong if you have not used it for a while (like over the winter) then switched it back on in the recent good weather.

Good point. Motoring pundits suggest using aircon at least once a week to keep the seals lubricated to stop them drying out.

I find it impossible to keep the windows demisted without AC so mine stays on all seasons

Nearside of engine bay has two silver metal pipes going to the bulkhead, bottom one small diameter high pressure and the top one larger diameter low pressure. Both pipes have valves with black plastic caps on. Use the low pressure valve to top up and/or check static pressure.
