Pug 2008 no air con
« on: 07 July 2019, 17:14:23 »

Car's barely 2 years old, air-con gave us the ghost, anyone have one of these and know if it was something simple to fix? Going to take back to dealer any way as should still be fixable under warranty I would imagine, but just wondering what was the issue. I did notice a kind of hissing/sucking noise behind dash a couple of weeks ago when it was turned on, thinking maybe a vac pipe maybe loose or possible gas escape.

I reckon a 2008 pug is about eleven years old but, then again, maths has never been my strong point.  ;D

Seriously, why faff about with it when the car is still within warranty?

I doubt you'll find another pug 2008 owner on here. We'd have heard about it  ::)

All fixed, they'd replaced condenser and the pipes from that to compressor. Dealer said it was a strange one, they'd never seen anything like that before on one of these models. Initially they'd went to fix the seals at the pipes in the compressor then said that it was still leaking at condenser, would it be rude of me to think they bust something in the process of taking the pipes out?

They initially said it was defo a warranty job, but then had to take pics to send to "their insurance company" leading me to think they done some damage while trying to repair the original problem.

Well none of that matters. You've got your car back in working order.  :y
