  1. AC (airconditioning) compressor won't engage

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. Finally some good weather here and found out the AC isn't working. As I have no idea when it was last serviced I got it re-gassed and pressure/vacuum tested to rule it out. All good. Still no hot air. Checked and tested fuse F19 and the relay, swopped them with others just to be sure, they...

  4. Stinky Aircon

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi folks, Just curious if anyone else has encountered intermittent stinky aircon in their G? Every so often i get a pungent vinegar smell come up from the vents. Before i go rumbling off to find the air inlet and investigate i figured i'd ask the font of knowledge here. I did have an issue...
  5. Aircon dead - it's hot in here!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, I have just found out that I have a completely knackered pipe on my Aircon, rendering the system useless! It has snapped off at the weld and cannot be repaired! I need to replace the pipes that run along the front of the engine bay behind the radiator. I don't suppose anyone knows where I...
  6. 2010 159 Tbi - airconditioning noise & breakdown, TWICE!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey there, My aircon started to make a rattling sound (quite like metal on metal) that increased with RPMs of the car. After a while the system stopped working (it still blew air, rattled, but refused to cool down the car) - As I am still on full warranty, the dealer replaced the...
  7. Air Conditioning Wiring help...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've got a '98 2L 156 T-Spark So I went to get the air con re-gassed a few days ago as it's never worked since I've it - and the air con guy discovered that the aircon isn't plugged in (which explains the plug that I never knew what was for). I've taken off the engine cover looking...
  8. Balls! The air-conditioning has packed up!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had an iPhone mount plugged into the cigarette lighter that the previous owner had. It was a bit wobbly in the socket, as it was top heavy, and would jiggle about not making a good connection, getting power then not, then getting power etc. Yesterday i noticed that whatever orientation it...

    Hi ALL! Our 1996 Spider TS is going to the Airconditioning shop to have a problem checked. Anyway, regardless if its just as simple as needing additional freon, i plan on having the internals cleaned of course as we have no idea of the aircon maintenance history. I know...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My nice new 2000 GTV is giving me grief. I bought it last saturday, took it to Kwik Fit who refilled the non-functioning AC circuit. It worked a treat, really cold air. Lovely in the hot weather. I parked it in the garage for the week, got it out yesterday, the AC was mildly cold, but not icy as...

    Ok, I think I know why this has been a problem... we've been having some warm weather here, so it's the first chance to use the 'cooling' of the a/c. Noticed today, that when I had the setting down to "Lo" (i.e. minimum) the air was not any...
  17. Crazy air-conditioning

    Alfa 155
    Hello, The air-conditioning of my Alfa 155 2.0 TS 16V is crazy. It works sometimes well, but only a short time. Often, when I use any electric device (electric windows, sunroof, brake, indicators...) the ventilator starts to turn very fast during a short moment :confused: . And sometimes...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today I ringed my dealer to make an appointment for a 40.000 km's service. Asked hem if if he would like to check my airco. I find that there are clear temperature differences under 20.5 degrees between left (driver) and right (passenger). The left side IS ALWAYS a couple of degrees warmer...
