    Air Con gone after Dealer done a re-fill

    My GF got her car service Astra 1.7 CDTI at 91k miles and the air con wasnt working.

    The dealer said it needed a re-fill as we thought and charged € 100 (Ireland) for the pleasure and now at 95k the Air Con has stopped working again.

    I am entitled to go back and have the dealer fix this again without any cost to me.

    Thanks.

    Clive.

    PS Also asked them to fix the Rear Window Washer, I think it worked for two days and then stopped working again. Does anyone know how to properly clean the washer to get all the muck out of it so the water will flow properly onto the back windscreen.

    Take it back but you will probably find there is an underlying problem (Leakey pipe etc) that will need to be fixed.

    As for the rear washer you can take it out and clean it.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    First things first.

    They'd have done a test to see if there was a leak, for it to go in a few thousand miles definitely denotes a leak somewhere. They've technically broken the law, by refilling your system with R-134A, which is supposedly bad for the O-zone and its leaked which is illegal to a certain degree.

    I'd kick up a fuss about it, and use that as your argument

    Cheers Guys,

    This dealer is very busy with servicing and we feel that they just get the cars in and out asap and dont really check the car over properly.

    Thanks guys for advise again
