This is already answered, but I was hoping for a bit of objectivity. My mechanic replaced the clutch in my '06 159sw 2L TDS. The job went fine and he charged us €1k which I thought was totally fine. The thing was a mess in fact. The pedal was not retracting and you could smell clutch even idling in neutral. Anyway, when it came back it drove fine, but the A/C no longer blew cold. He took it back and returned it two days later and wanted €328 for some sort of regulator or controller which he didn't specify or show me. But, the A/C still doesn't blow cold. I can take the car to a small shop around the corner and ask for a €50 recharge. They aren't specialists but have the machine, so I pay whether it works or not. We still haven't paid our guy who we've been with for many years, but he just seems to get less reliable as time goes on. We've got some long trips planned this summer so we need the A/C working like now!
