    Air Con Help

    Help I have a major problem, I tried my A/C last week and the engine bay started making one hell of a noise!!

    Took it to Vauxhall and they said that the small black box to make it work wasn't there! My only conclusion is that when it was in an accident in December they didn't put a new one in.

    So off to the garage I went and he fed my bulls*&t that the when the AIR FILTER was put in they took the box out - rubbish!!. So called the garage and they confirmed that they would not touch it.

    Now I don't know what to do! Does anybody know the techincal name for this box so I can get a price for it from Vauxhall and scrap yards.

    Sorry for the rant but I ain't happy and this guy is a recommended repairer!!

    The box should be on the left hand side of the bumper near the air filter

    The only thing i can think of from your description is the 'coolant control module' that should live inside the front wing, imediately behind the bumper on the nearside (kerbside) - ie behind the bumper/foglight and in front of the wheel.

    Its about the size of a 2 DVD boxes.

    Have a looksee
