Re: Knackered Air Con! £650 to fix!!!!!
Nope, I shall be accepting the word of the mechanic and leaving it to be done!
When I had it regassed, you could hear a hissing noise from behind the dash vents when the AC was on. Also, given the replacement evaporator is about £150ish, that is £500 to rip out most of my dash and gubbins, remove all the heater matrix cables and controls, replace the offending bit and refit it all, then re-gas it and provide mw with a years parts and labour guarantee.
I know I should take it all over the place top get second opinions, but each AC health check or investigation will cost money which I don;t want to spend needlessly, I reckon it is a reasonable price for all the hard work involved.
I'm just a bit gobsmacked by how deep in the dash Alfa saw fit to bury this part!
