aircon

  1. Alfa MiTo
    Hi there! I have an Alfa Romeo Mito Sportiva 63 plate. It is my first car and I’ve only had it a year and a half. My air con fan recently stopped working on settings 1,2 and 3 but it still works on maximum for hot air and cold. I put water in the coolant tank and let it run and the air con...

    Morning, I have 2007 Spider which has recently developed a grinding whirling issue. Looks to be the aircon clutch as it stops when the aircon is on. Any idea on how much this might cost to fix? I’ve been quoted £600 minimum including the compressor. I’m in south London if anyone has a recommendation

    Just a quick check with you guys about this - maybe save sometime from having to take bumper off and reinstall a failed item. I stripped out my radiator and condenser when I had to replace the leaking radiator. Condenser was a mushy mess and clearly not functioning, so I didn’t reinstall or...

    Hello, alfa owners! I am a bit concerned about my 2006 159 1.9jtdm 16v and the fact that some mystery noise comes on when I turn on the A/C. The noise can only be heard at low speeds and is relevant to the engine RPM which leads me that it is a pulley. I have had the car checked at the local...

    I bought a manifold gauge set from Amazon as I was keen to get to grips with how the aircon works. I had a read of this guide and it all seems to make sense, high and low pressure side is in the sort of range I'd expect to see but just for the hell I added a puff of gas, quite happy. Thing is...

    My "wonderfull" car developed strange problem once again. When the car is hot and you turn on aircon IT starts to cough and splutter until it stalls. ECU then throws p0650 Mil engine lamp fatal error. Things i've checked so far - earths points in cabin, under right headlight, main earth from...

    Hi all, With the hot summer and pollen level at bonkers I decided to finally get my AirCon recharged. I’m normally ok with just the window open but thought after a couple of years with no cold AirCon I’ll get it done. I got it done and it held the cold air for a while. Anyway that lasted not...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Have had my 2012 Giulietta for about 20 months now. I love it. The first problem I've had with it just started recently. The aircon wasn't kicking on as it should. I had it regassed last year at the dealer and thought they must not have found a leak when compression testing it. Unfortunately...

    Does anyone have a good recommendation suppliers of an aircon condenser for a 1.9 16v 147TI please?

    I’ve been driving around in my GT for the last few months with the aircon off (as it wasn’t working). I recently fixed the aircon (leaking condenser) and it now works perfectly. However - now I’m finding that the cooling fan is triggering approx every minute - it runs for a few seconds, then...

    Question for ther mechanics/tech savvy's Read a couple of threads on this but no wiser really. Ex mechanic but never had anything to do with aircon. My car has what looks like dual climate control - I can set the tempearture for each side. However, the aircon hasn't worked since I bought it...

    .......if I switch my aircon to Auto then the internal air recirculation comes on, A is illuminated. To turn it off I press the button and the M light comes on. If I press again it goes out. It's the same procedure when I switch the fan to Off. Does anyone else have the same niggle or do I need...

    Can anyone recommend a good aircon specialist in Kent, had a local call out guy find a bottom joint into compressor leak whixh he fixed, no other obvious leaks from his bubble check, topped up qnd worked well for few days but lasted no longer than a week I assume pressure has dropped now as...

    Does anyone know where I can get the aircon compressor repaired, or a good place to buy a new one. It has developed a leak.
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I replaced to aircon pump 5 weeks ago because it was seized with the intention of recharging it, so never got round to doing it and it has also seized! My theory being , that I was always switching off the aircon light as I knew nothing was working anyway. Now that this has seized , why would...

    So for some reason my rear control unit stopped working. There is also an error in the aircon controller that it cannot communicate with the rear unit. I though maybe there was a plug loose, so I checked ELEARN for the wiring diagrams. Seems everything is tucked away deep inside the dash. The...

    My aircond stopped cooling 6 months ago. I did not care at the time as it was not very hot anyway. No cold air us coming out. Connecting multiecuscan does not say anything that I think us of value. No faults logged and the sensors seems to indicate believable values. The compressor is engaging...

    I have not had this car (GT) in summer ownership yet , but I always run the aircon to keep it in a serviceable condition. So yesterday was sitting in the car and I was getting quite hot with the recirculation on , so decided to cool off , nothing dramatic happened with the change of temp...

    I have a mystery fault with the aircon which I’m hoping someone may be able to help with. The system works for a few weeks and then stops due to low pressure, so the gas is presumably getting out somewhere. What is odd though is that it has been pressure tested numerous times and always holds...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    I have a 12 plate Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir 170 and I have a problem with the heater/air con system. I do not get any heat coming out regardless of how high I set the required temperature. The fan works at all speeds, I can change between each vent and the air con works (i.e really cold air comes...
