I bought my Astra (2001, 1.6, 16V) about a month back from a Trader. The car has done about 35K. The car is running smoothly without any issues except for the AC. It just does not seem to work. I got it checked at the Quickfit and was told that the gas was just 400 mg as against 700 mg. Got it filled up. There were no leaks in the system. Yet it does nto seem to work. I got it checked again at Vauxhall Dealer and he says that the Compressor has blown off. He's given me a quote of £492 (300£ + VAT + Labour) .
1) Is this price for compressor OK?
2) I spoke to the Trader and he says AC is not covered under Warrenty and hence he wont pay . I keep telling him the AC was not working when i took the car from him. How do i get the money out of this Trader?
Can anybody help me here?
