New Ariel + Air Con?
So i'm two weeks into owning my first A.L.P.H.A and i love it, couple of problems i cant seem to fix though....
This morning I noticed that the radio quality was fuzzy, I looked at the Ariel and noticed that it had not deployed automatically when turning the power to the stereo on. I turned the stereo on and off several times after waiting between each attempt but no motor sound or movement.
After looking at the motor I noticed that the thin strip of plastic going from the bottom of the Ariel to the top of the motor (the grey piece with train line groves all the way along it) is snapped off at the bit where it goes into the top of the motor. I don’t know why or how this has happened but I’m guessing this is part of my problem, but also the motor makes no sound at all? Could there be an electrical fault causing the motor not to work do you think? Basically I want to know if I need to buy a new motor or not? Also living in South East London, is there anyone who can recommend a trust worthy place who can take a look at this for me?
I have read the manual on the air con set up and still can’t figure this one out. I’m pretty sure that the air con needs re-gassing as it never blows out cooler then outside air temperature, if so, should I treat this as a specialist job, or can any garage re-gas the Air Con without any worry? Secondly, when I turn the engine on, the green light on the snow flake symbol button (on the temperature dial) always comes on, even if the fan is switched to off, I thought this would only be the case if it was on auto, can any body advise me why this is happening and if it is normal?
Many thanks for you help everyone, I shall update you all on my progress as I solve these two problems.
