The Air Con in my Astra (1.7tdi LS 2000 model) gave out a while back. I got it checked out and the garage found a crack in the compressor casing causing a leak. I managed to source a cheap compressor and am planning to get the garage to fit it in a few weeks when it's due in for service.
However I expect that I'll be selling the car within the next 6 months to a year, so I'd like to know if it's worth just using a DIY can refill on the Air Con rather than paying for a full refill at the garage. Really I just need to know if there are any other issues with the compressor being replaced that I need to know about?
