    Air Con needs sorting

    Hi,
    My Air con doesnt appear to be working right. When I've got it on it's not making any difference to the temperature of the car, it blows out air the same as if i just have the fans on.
    I recckon this is because it need to be regassed.
    Is it possible for me to regas it myself with one of those cans from halfords or somewhere? If so how/ where do I do it? Or should I take it to someone to get done?

    Thanks

    Air con is a specialised job so i would recommend taking it somewhere that knows what they are doing, if it's low on gas or has no gas in the system then it needs checking for leaks, if none are found then the next job is to service and re-fill the system ( including adding correct oil ) and to add a dye to the system which will enable any leaks to be more easily found later.
    If the system has gas in it, then the feed to the compressor needs checking and so on
    Does a Halfords can do this for you

    Definatley take it somewhere, as said above this is a specialised job. There maybe a leak, but it may simply be that it needs regassing due to use.

    Im not sure if halfords can do it, but i know Kwik Fit can and they are quite reasonably priced too.

    I know air con is a specialised job. Was just woundering if I could regas it myself. But suppose I should get it checked for leaks and the such.

    Thanks guys
