Not good news but yesterday I had the condenser replaced on my 2011 Giullietta. The A/C had stopped working and it was found to be a leak in the condenser. This is vulnerable to stone damage being in the very front just behind the grille. The Indie (Independent Alfa Specialist) that did it said that at 8 years old he was not surprised and that it is not rare for this to happen. As Cue2 says if it has merely lost gas through age then a regas will fix it. Mine was regassed two yeas ago and everything was fine until last September. Didn't need it through the winter so left it until the service in June. When it was regassed the leak was apparent (the dye they inject with the gas shows up under UV light) and while it worked initially it had stopped within two weeks just in time for that hot spell we had at the end of June

Procrastination is the thief of time
