AC on my 147.

Had my car serviced last week. Took it for a spin on Friday evening as it was so nice. I turned on the AC as it got kinda hot in the car. The air was cold alright but not brrrrr..ohh it's brass monkeys cold. Could the AC need recharging? The car is a 2003 model with 41,000 on the clock.

Re: AC on my 147.

Strange one. Should not need recharging so soon and definitely not with the usage it would get in our climate (probably 7 days of the year!)

Take it back to them for a checkup, it could be a leak in the system some-place?

Actually, you need to use it more often to keep it working. As I understand it, it is self lubricating, so if you don't use it, the seals can dry out and you can lose gas.
