156 1.8TS goes in for service tomorrow. Do they need a/c recharges or is it just a top up of liquid...or is that the same thing.

If it requires topping up regularly (more than every few years) then you have a leak. You should get the air con system pressure tested with a U.V. dye at a proper specialist (not an air con regassing station) to find out where the leak is from.

BTW it is illegal for the air con "professionals" to knowingly release the gas into the atmosphere. They should ask you some questions before filling, and if they suspect a leak must check for such. Any place that does not do this are cowboys IMO.

agree...if you need a top up you will need to have the whole system looked...a well looked after air con system shouldn't leak gas
