I asked over on FCCUK, whether any other coupe owners had had their aircon done at kwik shat, and I was advised to stay away.
There is one guy on there who works and an automotive air conditioning engineer, and quite often has to sort out Kwik fits bodges.
I am pretty sure Alex (smaky) is correct IMO they have overfilled it, and with the compressor engages the pressure is going too high and the system is then disengaging the compressor.
The system doesn't take much refridgerant, probably only about 500g or so in total, so a muppet could easily overfill it.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
