Re: Kwik-Fit and Air Con Service
I had my GTV AC redone by them, they only use a machine that is fully automatic. If you know the system is working fine just a bit less cold than normal, and just needs a re-gas then go for it. If the AC has stopped working then don't bother. I had a hole in the evaporator on my GTV the size of a baked bean. The Kwik Fit machine leak tested the system and didn't find the leak. A proper garage hooked it up to a Nitrogen tank and the N2 came out the air vents obviously.
Kwik Fit are good for simple operations, new tyres, new exhausts, never use them for brain testing jobs like oil changes, servicing or brakes. They are all too often staffed by spanner monkeys with the IQ of a hamster!
