air con tip

My air con was not working correctly when Ifirst purchased the car. Only seemed cool on coolest temp setting
/climate control type/ then if you selected 17 or 18 warm air started coming out .
Their are two small vents under the control knobs on eeitherside one blank and the oother grill type.
Just blow hard into the open one, you could use compressed air or an aerosol can of air product.
Now my air con works fine. TThere must be a sensor of some sort that gets blocked up with dust in there that sense the temp. Result climate control spot on fixed at no cost.

Probably the internal temp sensor. Some cars have a small fan that draws air in from the cabin and over the sensor. The sensors can get covered in dust etc , even more so in cars that are smoked in.
