air con leak

i own a face lift 156 1.9 jtd and ive just discovered that my air conditining has lost all the gas the leak was traced to a failure in the larger of the two pipes at the rear of the engine leading to the evaporator. the cause of the failure was a rubber hose rubbing against the aluminium pipe, over a period of time this had flat spotted the pipe leading to its failure. replacing the pipe isnt that big a job but its a dealer only item that cost around 200 so it may be worth checking your own cars as some tape around the pipe to protect them might be ten minutes well spent if you want to save yourself a big bill.

Warning Check it before it Happens !

I can confirm the Issue seen by XXXGringo.

Luckily Exactly the same problem was fixed on My 2003 Facelift 1.9JTD Sportwagon just before I bought it.

Looking at the Bill it cost 200 for the Part & another 100 to fit and re gas.
Not a cheap repair

I think I will be checking the replacement is not suffering the same problem this weekend.

Thanks for the Heads up mate.
