D2 V8 Aircon leaking - Suggestions to look for?


Recommended Posts

Aircon stopped working recently, worked out it was the high/low pressure cut-out sensor that was disabling the system so assumed that, after 11 years, the system needed a re-gas!

One (garage) re-gas attempt with the proper kit, which failed saying the system had a leak.

Any suggestions as to where I might start looking?

Are there "usual suspects" that cause failures?

Thanks

Jim

Hi There.

I had a leak to find, it is not easy. There are two ways. The proper way is to add a luminous dye to the air con fluid and look for staining with a UV light. With mine, I saw corrosion on the bottom corner of the air con's radiator. Cost me £85 for a replacement... Do it on a dry day to avoid getting damp into the system. Mine still leaks a bit, but a recharge from Halfords fixes it for a year.

The recharge cans are £20 but have a £10 return deposit in them.

God luck with it!
