Aircon - DIY Recharge?
I've just noticed some "DIY" aircon recharging systems on eBay for c£30, comprising a connecting pipe, pressure guage and refrigerant cannister.
Has anyone any experience of recharging their own a/c systems or does anyone know what a garage charges to check and top up a system?
My 2002 156 seems OK-ish (compared to the tales of woe I've read on this forum), but I still don't think its as good as my wife's 2000 Toyota Yaris.
Someone said somewhere that Alfa never charge their systems to the maximum pressure at the factory, so they're always going to benefit from a top-up.
I was thinking of gambling £30 to see if it made a difference, but I'm a bit wary of doing any damage.
Has anyone any views positive or negative?
