Air Con Leakage

Post by Scbb » Tue Mar 25, 2014 4:56 pm

My aircon was blowing hot air on the driver side and minimal cool air on the passenger side. Went to top up gas just now (cost me $20) and the guy at the workshop says there might be a leak. Need to monitor for 1 week after gas top up. If warm air comes back again, it's definitely a leakage.

Any trusted workshop to introduce to check and fix the air con? Roughly how much does it cost?

My ride is Feb 07. Also encountered same issue. Driver side intermittently blow hot/warm air. Now at mark cool. Worker found the black rubber hose the feeds to the compressor leaking. Another pipe that connects to the top left part of engine bay has a worn out ring seal.
Currently repairing. Quoted price $128.
