    Question Airconditioning failure 1997 Astra

    The airconditoning on my Astra has failed ... not good with temperatures near 40C in recent weeks! Anyway, when I press the aircon switch .. nothing ... no change in revs, no nothing . The aircon doesn;t seem to be cutting in. Has anyone had a similar problem and can help me? Thanks

    Check to see if the centre of the compressor is running when you switch it on if it does then it needs a regas.

    If not the check to see if you are getting a live feed to the compressor, if so and the centre isn't spinning then it's a new compressor

    First thing to do every time is get the AC regassed, this is something that should be done every couple of years anyway
